Most dementia sufferers and their families find that domiciliary care in their own home is a far better alternative to long term residential care. Our dementia clients find comfort in the fact that they will not need to leave the familiarity of their own homes and can continue to receive all the care and help they require while still being surrounded by treasured possessions and memories - and even beloved pets.
Although some symptoms of dementia are common to everyone, dementia affects each person in different ways. Our bespoke, flexible personalised care plans are based on the individual - not the illness, always taking into account their history, personality and feelings as well as likes and dislikes.
All our carers are highly trained, with extensive experience of supporting individuals with many forms of memory loss. Understanding that a key element to dementia care is to encourage individuals to live a normal life, our professional care team offer encouragement, reassurance and support in making everyday decisions - from what to eat for breakfast to what clothes to dress in.
For some time now Care4u2Day have been calling in several times during the day to make sure that my approaching 90 years young mother has taken her medication, has food and liquids and is generally okay. But that is not all they do. They take the time to sit with her and listen to her family memories without watching the clock. My mother is wary of strangers but her carers have now become part of her family, which shows how much trust she has in them.
