Dementia Care and Support
Quality of life means a lot of things to a lot of people. At Managing Care, we believe that three key factors are vital to enjoy a better quality of life and we address these through the services we offer. These are to have:
- someone to love and be loved in return
- somewhere to live, a place we call our home
- something to do which caters for our interests and aspirations
It’s very important that people with dementia are treated with respect. It is important to remember that a person with dementia is still a unique and valuable human being, despite their illness.
When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. The people closest to them – including their carers, friends and family – need to do everything they can to help the person to retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth.
Our carers can help you on a one-to-one basis with all domestic duties that may have become more difficult, as well as providing personal care. Our carer will also be a companion to support you emotionally as well as physically.
If you are caring for a person with dementia, you may sometimes find their behaviour confusing, irritating or difficult to deal with, leaving you feeling stressed, irritable or helpless. We specifically train our carers to work with these situations. They understand the importance of learning the meaning behind the actions of the person with dementia and to always respond in a calm manner. This way our carers can deal effectively with the challenges that arise.
