Specialist dementia care in the comfort of your own home.

We understand that caring for someone with dementia can be challenging and sometimes stressful. At Nurseplus Care at home, our experienced care workers are highly trained to help reduce the effects and symptoms of dementia, in addition to providing reassurance and a familiar face to the individual and their family members.

Our Dementia Care at home service ensures that those living with dementia can remain in the comfort of their own home, rather than being placed in a residential care setting.

What is Dementia care at home?

Our dementia care service is tailored specifically to the requirements of you or a loved one, meaning that we have a full understanding of the care needs required. This could include helping someone with everyday tasks in the morning, or assisting with any sleep problems that dementia can cause.

Our professional, highly trained carers can visit for a couple hours right through to continuous live-in care, depending on the bespoke care package in place.

Here are some of the areas of dementia care our carers can assist with;

  • Helping with washing and bathing

  • Helping with incontinence and toilet use

  • Helping with eating and drinking

  • Assisting with everyday tasks such as shopping and gardening

  • Medication support

"My mother is suffering from dementia. The whole experience has been incredibly distressing, however since Nurseplus Care at home have been on board with the care and support they provide for Mum, things have been made so much easier. My Mum loves the carers and looks forward to their visits. They treat my Mum with care and support her with the utmost dignity and kindness. I would thoroughly recommend Nurseplus Care at home."

What is dementia?

Dementia is not a disease; dementia is the term given to a group of symptoms caused when the brain is damaged by diseases such as Alzheimer’s or a series of strokes. These symptoms often include memory loss, difficulties with thinking, problem solving or language and a person with dementia may also experience changes in their mood or behaviour. The specific symptoms that a person will experience will depend on the parts of the brain that have been damaged and the disease causing the dementia.

The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, however there are other causes including:

  • Vascular dementia is when a lack of oxygen to the brain causes nerve cells to die. This can be the result of a stroke, a series of mini strokes or a disease of the small blood vessels.

  • Dementia with Lewy bodies is when abnormal structures form in the brain and cause the death of nerve cells.

  • Mixed dementia is having more than one type of dementia with a mix of different symptoms

  • Frontotemporal dementia is the formation of clumps of abnormal proteins in the front and sides of the brain causing the death of nerve cells.

  • Unfortunately, dementia is progressive meaning that it will worsen over time.
