What is dementia care and alzheimer’s care?
Dementia care and alzheimers care provides ideal support to people living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Understanding the common symptoms of the syndromes is fundamental to providing environments which offer a good quality of living. Staff that understands how nutrition affects symptoms, how to comfort an anxious resident, how to re-direct activities into healthy options are critical to peace of mind for the resident and the family.
Who should consider a dementia care and alzheimers care environment?
Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s care is suited to any person requiring nursing support during the day and night. At Pembury, we strive to provide such access to nursing care and caregiver assistance in a private and comfortable Pembury home care environment.
Some symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia can be challenging to manage in an ordinary home environment e.g. wandering, pica, disturbance of the sleep / wake cycle, incontinence, emotional lability, disorientation and so on. Our staff have long experience in managing these common symptoms empathetically.
Many families try to cope by themselves at home and put themselves at risk of care-giver burnout.
We will be happy to provide you and your loved one with a new professional level of support on a temporary or long term basis.
If your loved one needs dementia care and alzheimer’s care on a respite care basis, please contact the matron of your nearest care centre to discuss.
