Dementia Care Service
Lincolnshire & Yorkshire
Dementia can take many forms and many stages, which can become very difficult for the families and loved ones of those suffering from it.
We believe in retaining independence for as long as possible and providing dignity and quality of life in the persons own home; with the added benefit of familiar surroundings and social benefits that may not be possible in a care home environment.
Carers For As Long As You Need Them
If you feel that longterm care in a care home is not the right solution for your loved one then we may be able to provide the perfect, tailored service for you. We retain your loved ones freedom in their home by coming to you and fulfilling all of their daily needs.
You may wish to seek full-time care or occasional days of cover so that family members and friends can get some respite. We're here for as long as you need us and will always go the extra mile to see that everyone is happy, in what can be a challenging time.
Our qualified, caring staff will become an extension of your family and provide another familiar face for those who need it.
Question: What Is Dementia Care?
Dementia care provides specialised support for people living with dementia. Carers should understand that it can cause difficulties when making sense of surroundings, memory loss and perception issues which may lead to changes in personality or mood swings.
Any carers of dementia patients must be qualified and experienced to understand the different types and stages of dementia in order to aid with the problems it creates.
Each dementia case can be very different and the carers have to accommodate and adapt to create a safe, loving and secure environment for those who need assistance.
Understanding The Difference
Dementia Care At Home
Versus Care Homes
Dementia will touch the lives of many families at some point and can lead to very difficult decisions when it comes to living arrangements. Remaining independent is incredibly valuable to a persons dignity and can help create more cherished experiences and memories in an environment that is familiar to the people directly affected.
Care homes can do a great job in terms of care standards but often have a large staff turnover and can create challenges for a person suffering from dementia.
Ideally, we'd love to see dedicated staff and familiar faces to take care of your loved ones. With tailored services to suit their needs and their personality.
A one-on-one ratio for carers to patients means trust and reliability can build and family members will get the chance to have a break, get some rest and not feel the guilt associated with sending loved ones to care homes.
Support can be provided day and night along with the extras like activities, companionship and conversation. This comes without the risk potentially posed by other patients who may have more complex needs and behaviours.
Creating a safe, loving and supportive environment is at the forefront of everything The Great Care Co stands for. The wellbeing of your loved ones and family should be the priority of any care company and simply taking care of physical requirements is only a small part of ensuring needs are met.
