What is dementia?

Dementia is caused by different diseases that affect the brain. Dementia is not a disease in its own right, so the symptoms of dementia vary from person to person.  It is actually an umbrella term which is used to describe a group of symptoms related to cognitive function. 

Symptoms of dementia commonly include problems with memory, thinking, problem solving, language and perception.

There are approximately 400 types of dementia, with the most common types being Alzheimers’ disease and vascular dementia.

"We have been extremely happy with the service we have received form initial planning to the day to day operation of care for mum. I was quite anxious at first, having to leave mum at home, as I went back to work but my anxieties were minimised as I was assured that the right person would be found to build a caring relationship with mum. This was indeed the case and she has thrived. "

Caring for someone with dementia

There are common misconceptions about the outcomes for someone diagnosed with dementia, which are still widely believed. Many people believe that there are limited options for people with dementia and the only choice is inevitably residential care.

However, as our understanding of the condition has increased, so has supporting evidence for in-home care for dementia patients. Studies have shown that quality care at home can have a real impact on stabilising the most common dementia symptoms. In fact, dementia homecare can even slow the progression of the condition.

A healthy diet, suitable exercise and cognitive stimulation have all been shown to have a positive impact on dementia symptoms. So we work with our Clients to ensure their care plan meets all of these needs.

Our CareGivers and Clients often visit Witton Country Park together or enjoy a trip to the shops in Boundary Mill or Oswaldtwistle Mill. Our aim is to provide the best possible care whilst also meeting our Clients’ personal choices and needs. 

FAQs about our homecare for dementia in East Lancashire

Can a dementia patient be cared for at home?

With the right care and support from trained professionals like our East Lancashire and Ribble Valley-based CareGivers, it’s realistic to manage dementia at home. 

Many prospective Clients ask us: ‘when should someone with dementia go into a care home?’. We believe that residential care isn’t always the answer, as many people living with dementia benefit from familiar surroundings.

We offer different types of care that work in tandem to create a personalised care plan for all stages of dementia. Contact our team in East Lancashire and Ribble Valley to discuss your specific circumstances and any concerns you may have.

At what point do dementia patients need 24-hour care?

24-hour dementia care at home can be invaluable for older people and anyone struggling with the late stages of dementia. There is no specific stage at which dementia patients need 24-hour assistance, as everyone experiences the condition differently. But full-time domiciliary care can provide peace of mind whenever caring for someone with dementia becomes unmanageable. 

At Right at Home East Lancashire and Ribble Valley, our dementia care services are based on an agreed care schedule. If you are interested in full-time care for a dementia patient, we can combine various types of care. We can allocate specialist CareGivers across East Lancashire and Ribble Valley to incorporate dementia specialist homecare into a care plan for live-in care or 24-hour homecare.

Can someone with dementia live alone?

At Right at Home East Lancashire and Ribble Valley, many of our Clients are people with dementia who continue to live independently at home.

The symptoms of dementia progress at a different rate for different people, so many can continue to live alone for some time. 

In the advanced stages of dementia, live-in care or 24-hour dementia care from our CareGivers in East Lancashire and Ribble Valley can offer peace of mind whilst allowing Clients to remain in their home.

Do dementia patients do better at home?

Familiar surroundings and regular routines are key to reducing distress for people with dementia. Confusion and disorientation are common symptoms of dementia, so we aim to reduce any uncertainty.

That’s why it’s ideal for our Clients to receive consistent support in the familiar home environment. Working with the same specially trained East Lancashire and Ribble Valley-based CareGivers on a regular basis can provide stability and reassurance for our Clients. We are proud to help people remain a part of the East Lancashire and Ribble Valley community.
