Why Choose Alzheimer's Care at Home?

Companions Home Care offer long-term, live-in care services for people with dementia. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form, and a diagnosis with dementia can be very challenging to you, your family and your loved one. We are here to offer a gentle helping hand, ensuring that the client requiring care and support receives it with dignity and empathy. Our ultimate aim is to improve our client's quality of life.

Our live-in care service allows your loved one to receive around-the-clock care from a professional provider. As a form of dementia, Alzheimer's will gradually deteriorate your loved one's memory and mental abilities. Therefore, remaining in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of their own home can have untold benefits. All our services are truly personalised to your loved one's individual care and support needs. We will conduct an initial assessment to fully understand their needs and determine how we will meet them. We aim to provide peace of mind for you and your family, knowing that your loved one is in capable hands. Our highly trained team have the skills and experience necessary to care for your loved one and allow them to live a full life, regardless of their condition

As a personal home care service, we do not just see our duties as caring for someone with dementia but as a bespoke service with unique care requirements. Our bespoke service will help your loved ones to continue doing the things they love to do. We will learn all about their hobbies and interests and assist them in any way we can. Ensuring continuity in their life is a proven way to help people with dementia cope with their symptoms. 

As part of their condition, older people with Alzheimer's will become more irritable and confused, leading to a more significant need for emotional care. Our specialist care providers understand this and are happy to offer their gentle, compassionate care service for your loved one.Our client's wellbeing, both physical and emotional, is our priority, and we will do everything we can to help your loved one live a full life. 

Dementia and Alzheimer's Support We Offer

Alzheimer's disease, as a form of dementia, has a progressive series of symptoms identified by the Alzheimer's society, including memory loss, language issues and cognitive difficulties. 

These symptoms come as a result of brain damage, where efficient communication between the neurones of the brain is impaired. Depending on the areas of the brain that are affected varies the types of symptoms people will experience. Alzheimer's disease is just one of over 100 forms of dementia.

It is often recommended that people living with Alzheimer's disease, or any other form of dementia, are not left to live alone. People with dementia should receive daily dementia care, whether short visits or long-term live-in care, to help limit any trips, falls or accidents.

Care for Alzheimer's Disease vs Dementia Care

The care and support needed by those with Alzheimer's disease are often more complex than those for other forms of dementia. 

Carers providing Alzheimer's support are required to undertake additional training when compared with dementia care to ensure they have the skills necessary to meet to needs of our clients. This is an essential detail that Companions Home Care can provide, ensuring that our clients with Alzheimer's disease are effectively cared for in the best way possible. 

The name "Dementia" refers to a number of brain disorders that impair people's memory, thought processes, decision-making and concentration. Of these disorders, Alzheimer's disease is the most common form currently in the UK. 

Between 60% and 80% of dementia, diagnoses are caused by Alzheimer's disease. It can be worthwhile learning which symptoms to look out for if you think your loved one may have dementia and to arrange appropriate dementia care when needed. 

Types of Alzheimer's Disease In-home Services

Given the personal nature of the care and support services we provide, people's needs differ from client to client. Some of our in-home services involve non-medical duties and general household tasks, such as cooking and assisting with ablutions. 

Other home care services we offer involve medical care, which is all provided by qualified and experienced healthcare professionals, such as physiotherapists or nurses. 

Standard in-home social care services that we offer include:

 Companion Services

Help to supervise your loved one with hobbies, recreational activities and visits.  

 Personal Care Services

Assisting with ablutions, toileting, dressing, gentle exercise, mealtimes and other personal care and support services.

 Homemaker Services

Lending a hand around the house with general chores, shopping and mealtime preparation.

 Skilled Care

Assisting with care to wounds, overseeing injections and physical therapy and undertaking any other duties authorised by a medical professional. 

Home care organisations will often arrange for these types of services once ordered by a doctor.

Benefits of In-home Care

One of the primary benefits of arranging in-home care for your loved one, rather than residential care, is that they are allowed to remain in the comfortable surroundings of their own home. There are generally two forms that this kind of care can take. 

The first is hourly visits which will take place for a couple of hours a week. Alternatively, if your loved one requires more intensive care, then one of our carers can provide live-in care where they will be on hand whenever your loved one needs assistance. Our carers will conduct a personal assessment to make decisions on how best to care for your loved one and improve their quality of life.

The advantages of arranging in-home care for your loved one include:

 Familiar Surroundings

One of the most crucial aspects of receiving in-home care is that your loved one will be surrounded by the things they know and love. Unlike care homes, where your loved one will only have a single room to house their possessions, they can hold onto more of their favourite things by receiving care at home. This can be especially beneficial for those living with dementia. 

 Personalised Care

Our in-home care service is personally tailored to your loved one's individual care needs. Our care plan will fit naturally around their ordinary lives to maintain their independence while receiving care. Your loved one will be able to carry on as usual, with the addition of a compassionate helping hand when they need it. 

 Home Health Care

Personally tailored care plans means that more time can be spent considering your loved one's needs. This inevitably leads to a more comprehensive level of professional care. While receiving care at home, people find that they recover quicker after stays in the hospital. In-home care also allows our clients to recover at their own pace, with a flexible care plan suited to their needs. 

 More Independence

Losing independence can be a stressful, frustrating and emotionally difficult process. Conversely, by arranging for your loved one to receive in-home care, your loved one will be able to hold onto more of their freedom. Our care plans are organised around their individual lives, allowing them to choose when and what they wish to do. This can be anything from bedtimes to socialising and taking part in hobbies. Our carers can also help your loved ones get out of the house, helping them gain greater independence and self-esteem. 

 Family Participation

Another crucial benefit of your loved one receiving in-home care is that you and your family members will be free to visit them whenever you please. We also invite you and your family to be personally involved in your loved one's care, taking a greater holistic approach to in-home care.
