Dementia Care

If you are looking for extra care and support for someone who is living with Dementia and Alzheimer’s at home then our Dementia Carers can help. We can provide dementia care at home from only 30 minutes per week to live-in care.

At Novus Care, we understand caring for someone living with Dementia can be difficult for not only the person who has Dementia but particularly hard for those close to them. The number of people living with dementia is steadily increasing and when someone with dementia is faced with the difficult reality that their mental capabilities are steadily declining, they often require support and reassurance to deal with the daily challenges of living with dementia.

Our dementia carers receive specialist dementia care training and they are committed to working with clients and their loved ones to ensure that their care needs are being met – whilst retaining their sense of identity and protecting their dignity and independence – all in the comfort of their own home.

What Is Dementia?

Dementia is a term that describes a set of indicators which affect brain functions such as memory, language skills and information processing. There are many different types of dementia with Alzheimer’s and Vascular Dementia being the most common forms.

Dementia is a progressive disease for which there is currently no cure. Once someone is diagnosed with dementia, they may deteriorate very quickly or you may have years left before care is required. Many people care for a loved one with dementia in the early stages of the disease, but when it gets more challenging they often move the loved one to a care home. Home care with specialist dementia support is an alternative, and allows people to stay in their homes for longer.

If you are struggling with dementia or finding it difficult to cope with a loved one at home with dementia, you are not alone. Whether you need help with daily practicalities, companionship or respite support, we are here to help you. Read our reviews to find out what people have to say about our home care services.

How can our Dementia care services help?

At Novus Care, we understand caring for someone living with Dementia can be difficult for not only the person who has Dementia but particularly hard for those close to them. The number of people living with dementia is steadily increasing and when someone with dementia is faced with the difficult reality that their mental capabilities are steadily declining, they often require support and reassurance to deal with the daily challenges of living with dementia.

Dementia care at home

Our dementia care at home service starts with visits from just 30 minutes per week. Our dementia carers can visit your loved one first thing in the morning to help them get up dressed and help with personal care, breakfast and administer any medication. As symptoms get steadily worse and they progress through the different stages of dementia, your loved one may need increased support at home or during the evening.

As our dementia care at home service is completely flexible, visits can increase as and when required and our dementia live-in care service can even provide around the clock care and support. Our Dementia Carers can even be there during the night as we understand those living with dementia may get up repeatedly during the night and feel disorientated when they do so. Families have peace of mind that their loved ones are safe during the night with the help and support of one of our Dementia Carers.
