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 Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. 

"Right at Home has been looking after my mum, who has dementia, for the past four years. I could not wish to have found a better team. Why would I stay with a team of carers for over four years if they were not absolutely dedicated, professional, sympathetic and caring? I get daily updates of all visits via an app and regularly read “I was greeted with a big smile and hug from” “whilst preparing lunch we had a bit of a singsong”, “ on the walk she enjoyed seeing” - the carers really do seem to have a gift for getting my mum to enjoy the moment."

Caring for someone with dementia

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

However, studies have shown that quality care at home can have a real impact on stabilising the most common dementia symptoms. 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 the Museum of Berkshire Aviation together or enjoy an ice cream by the River Thames at Henley. 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 Reading & Wokingham District

Can a dementia patient be cared for at home?

With the right care and support from trained professionals like our Reading & Wokingham-based CareGivers, it’s realistic to manage dementia at home. 

Many prospective Clients ask: ‘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. Speak to our team in Reading & Wokingham to discuss your specific circumstances and 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 Reading & Wokingham District, our dementia care services are based on an agreed care schedule. If you are interested in full-time care for dementia, we can combine various types of care. We allocated CareGivers across Reading & Wokingham 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 Reading & Wokingham District, 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 Reading and Wokingham-based CareGivers 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 Reading & Wokingham-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 Reading & Wokingham Community.
