Our highly trained Dementia carers are familiar with the various types and stages of this condition and are experienced in helping clients and their families manage the associated daily challenges. We are absolutely committed to helping those who live with Dementia; caring for people in their own home is our aim. Continuous learning is required when providing Dementia care. Therefore, we work closely with associated organisations to develop on-going training programmes for our carers, enabling us to better support both our clients and carers.
Wherever you are on the journey, our Carers have experience in Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care and will support your loved one to continue living at home. We understand that everyone’s needs are different and all of our services can be tailored to suit the requirements of the individual.
