Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care home support from Caremark allows our clients to stay in familiar surroundings
What is dementia? According to the Alzheimer's Society, dementia is a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with 1-in-6 people over 80 having the condition. Some of the most common symptoms are:
Day-to-day memory. Recalling recent events can be problematic Limited problem solving. Our Care and Support Workers present decisions to clients in a way which is sympathetic to their condition. Never overwhelming them with choices. Change in appetite. A common symptom of dementia is a change in tastes or loss of appetite. Our award-winning training system offers our Care & Support Workers courses on Food & Hydration. Communication & language. Finding the right words or understanding questions asked can be frustrating for those with dementia. This is why we offer training to Care & Support Workers on how best to communicate.
Dementia care at home
For people with dementia, orientation and day-to-day memory can be challenging. For this reason, having a routine is even more important than usual. At Caremark, we aim to permanently allocate our Care & Support Workers. A familiar, friendly face will walk through our clients' doors for every visit.
Dementia care from Caremark at home allows our clients to stay in familiar surroundings alongside their loved ones for as long as possible. This serves as the ideal alternative to residential care.
As the condition progresses, dementia can cause behavioural changes, restlessness and agitation. Repeating questions is another factor which can cause a strain on loved ones. Our visits can provide respite for those who need a break from caring. Allowing them to relax while knowing their loved ones are being cared for.
Caremark's dementia commitment
Caremark is proud to have allocated over 2400 dementia courses to Care Workers over the last two years. Especially after shocking research by the Alzheimer's Society revealed that only 2% of people affected by dementia say home care workers have enough dementia training.
We are extremely committed to improving the lives of those with dementia. By providing personalised dementia home care across the country. Excellent quality care is not the only part of our commitment, we have been involved in a number of fundraising and awareness initiatives.
In 2015, a group of franchisees cycled from John O'Groats to Land's End. In fact, raising £50,000 for the Alzheimer's Society.
