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.

Parkinson’s Care

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, you may be anxious about the future. Parkinson’s is a serious degenerative brain condition that impedes motor skills, speech, and other functions. It creates rigidity of muscles and slows physical movement, meaning everyday tasks can become increasingly difficult or even impossible.
Managing Care supports Parkinson’s clients works across the spectrum of Parkinson’s progression. Whether you simply require regular care for medication prompts and meals, or are looking for a full-time, live-in carer, we can help.

Why opt for care at home?

When it comes to managing Parkinson’s, routine is everything. For example irregular medication consumption can be hazardous for sufferers, upsetting the balance of the brain and causing unpredictable symptoms, such as:
  • Inability to speak, move, eat or swallow
  • Uncontrolled body movements
  • Disturbing psychosis symptoms.
With Managing Care, you will have a one on one relationship with an expert carer, in which your welfare will be their sole focus. And since inconsistency of surroundings and routine can create stress (which can be harmful for Parkinson’s sufferers), the stability of this relationship has further benefits. We can help with:
  • Carefully monitoring your ups and downs day by day
  • Supervising of medication intake
  • Cooking, housekeeping and general errands
  • Supporting and supervising you in performing tasks which you are able to do, but that are difficult
  • Being on hand to liaise with any other helpful professionals as necessary, as well as giving regular wellbeing reports to family
  • Providing a friendly face and a stable, consistent source of personal support
  • Ensuring health and safety at home.
Our expert carers are specially trained in how to deal with Parkinson’s. We search out the most highly-qualified and dedicated staff, to walk hand-in-hand with you through those tasks that have become a challenge. From the outset, we will work with you and your family to create a unique care plan that maximises your independence in a safe way. Your life, best lived, is our priority.

Alzheimer’s Care

One of our most important services is the specialist care we offer for people with Alzheimer’s disease.
We at managing care acknowledge that caring for someone with Alzheimer’s can be very challenging at times, especially for family members who are full-time carers. We are aware of the importance of having experienced care staff, which family members and representatives trust to provide the highest standard of care to their loved ones.
All care staff is fully trained to provide person-centered care to people with Alzheimer’s. Family members and representatives can feel at ease knowing that we as a company place a high emphasis on treating people with Alzheimer’s with dignity and respect, and as individuals with individual needs.
All staff receives rigorous in-house training in Alzheimer’s care provided by our Care Manager who has over 5 years experience and in-depth knowledge of Alzheimer’s care. Having an understanding of the condition is vital in maintaining a high standard of care. Care staff is also trained to be flexible in their approach, to be creative listeners and adopt different communication techniques when interacting with people with Alzheimer’s.
We have successfully built a good working relationship with the Alzheimer’s Society and send our care staff to gain some practical experience at one of their local day centers as part of their induction training.
We provide a range of services for people with Alzheimer’s including respite care, companionship and one-to-one support. Engaging Alzheimer’s patients in stimulating activities has been proven to be an essential contributing factor to healthier lifestyles, good quality of life, well being and slow regression.
We provide a vast number of different activities to people with Alzheimer’s from reminiscence work to household chores, depending on the client’s interests, hobbies and background. We understand that by building a rapport and getting to know our clients really well and collating information about their background, family history, past interests and hobbies, we can provide them with activities that are both stimulating and satisfying.
