For those dealing with dementia or specific neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, a carer can provide the support they need to live comfortably in the safe and familiar surroundings of their home. Dementia care at home can be the most convenient option that allows them to remain as independent as possible. Curam’s experienced home carers provide specialist support for those with dementia throughout the UK.
Carers can support those with both early and late-stage dementia in numerous ways:
Dementia care at home can take many different forms, depending on the needs of the person receiving care. A specialist dementia and Alzheimer’s carer or personal assistant can provide different types of care:Share your care needs
Alzheimer's and dementia care is a specialised form of care supporting people in the various stages of dementia. This will often include medication prompting, reassurance, assistance with eating and drinking, continence care and therapeutic care.
In-home care can be beneficial to those with dementia and specific neurodegenerative diseases by providing them safety and comfort in familiar surroundings, potentially reducing confusion and making it easier for them to see family and friends.
Live-in dementia care is a good option for those who need constant care but have needs that can be met at home.
People in the middle and late stages of dementia will typically require 24-hour home care. Those in the early stages of dementia do not typically require as much assistance, but it’s important to monitor their progress and plan for the future.
While a care home might be right for someone with dementia, receiving care in their own home means that they’ll have assistance in a comfortable and familiar environment. Home carers support those with dementia in numerous ways:
Enable you to remain living comfortably in your own home
Reduce distress and confusion caused by moving
Provide companionship and focused one-on-one care
Reduce isolation and help them stay connected to friends, family and community
Help them maintain good nutrition and hydration
Give structure to their day and help them stay close to pets
Maintain your privacy and existing schedule
Home care is the most cost-effective kind of care for those who need support but would like to maintain their independence. Contrary to what many people assume about home care, it can actually be more cost effective than moving to a care home.
Carers will fulfil the tasks agreed to in their service agreement. These tasks can range from personal care to domestic tasks and chores including shopping, laundry, meal preparation and transport. The focus is on making sure those with dementia feel safe and cared for through their regular routines.
Dementia home care is tailored to an individual’s needs and specific condition. Carers on the Curam platform provide many different kinds of dementia care:
Live in-care for 24/7 support
Hourly care according to their schedule
Overnight care, including both sleeping night and waking night care
Respite care while your regular carer goes on holiday or suddenly unavailable
A carer looks after the person needing care according to the tasks agreed in the service agreement. Some of the tasks that an hourly carer might normally carry out are:
