Dementia is a progressive disease of the brain and it can eventually mean that a visiting care service is not enough to ensure the needs of the person are being met and there is a risk to their safety. This is where live-in care can help. It provides one-to-one, 24 hour support by an expertly trained Live in Carer with a minimum of two years of experience in their field. The carer will be able to offer all of the care and support that the person with dementia needs to be able to live independently, as well as ensure their safety.
The Live in Carer will encourage the person to be as independent as possible depending on the stage of dementia, as well as involve them in day-to-day activities to stimulate and engage them. It is important that our Live in Carers have the skill set to be able to offer an engaging environment while bearing in mind the difficulties a person with dementia often faces. They will understand how to find out why the person may be upset, or angry and know how to resolve the situation.
