For many years, dementia was considered a normal part of ageing, but now we know that it’s a symptom of diseases like Alzheimer’s. Approximately 425,000 Australians are living with dementia, and this number is expected to rise to over 530,000 by 2025. While dementia is debilitating over time, in-home care can help improve quality of life. Here are the benefits:
Each stage of dementia requires specific and personalized services. At Dementia Caring, we work with families and health care providers to deliver the best dementia support and assisted care to your loved ones. We understand that everyone is different, and our team can help you find a personal care package that fits your loved one’s needs. While assistance with domestic chores might be suitable for someone at the early stage of dementia, 24/7 home care would be more appropriate for people at the late stage of dementia.
One of the main benefits of dementia home care over nursing homes is the feeling of independence. Staying at home instead of moving to another place plays a significant role in making your loved one feel comfortable, too. People with dementia still need help with home maintenance, housekeeping, and meal preparation, but our fully-trained nurses will ensure that your loved one can live independently for as long as possible. Our plans are flexible, and they offer the level of dementia support that your loved one needs.
Caring for a loved one with dementia is not easy, especially if you don’t have much knowledge about the disease. Our services provide a skilled team of experts in dementia at your disposal. We offer dementia therapy programs, 24/7 respite and emergency assistance, and social support for families and those living with dementia. Even if you already have a care provider, come talk to us, and you’ll notice the difference in the quality of services as soon as you switch to Dementia Caring.
With offices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, Dementia Caring’s mission is to increase the quality of life of Australians with dementia. Feel free to contact us through our website or by calling 1300-792-691 to book in your initial free consultation.
