How can Right at Home East Lancashire and the Ribble Valley help?
Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia are increasingly linked to our senior care services, as the condition currently affects more than 800,000 people in the UK, with many more not yet diagnosed.
Dementia is a group of neurological symptoms caused by an ongoing decline in the brain and its abilities. It can cause confusion, loss of memory, problems communicating and reasoning, mood changes and difficulties performing daily tasks. It can have a huge impact on someone’s life, and on that of their family and loved ones.
But consistent, quality home care has been proven to help stabilise and even delay the progression of dementia; it can also lead to earlier diagnosis and medication, which greatly helps to manage the condition.
As a result, many people with dementia are able to live independently at home for years with the right support.
As well as maintaining regular routines with consistent CareGivers, we can manage medication and promote a healthy diet and gentle exercise, which together can slow down the progression of symptoms.
Our East Lancashire and Ribble Valley CareGivers are specially trained in dementia care and challenging behaviour and always aim to promote their client’s wishes and rights.
We can also either directly offer or arrange access to free dementia support services for family and friends, to help them understand what is happening and how they can best support their loved one.
