How to get home care for a dementia patient?

Home care can be invaluable for someone living with mild dementia symptoms, who wishes to remain in their own home. The comfort of familiar surroundings can be reassuring for dementia patients, and expert dementia home care can ensure that they are supported to live the life they choose in their own homes.

In many ways, the process for arranging dementia home care services is no different to arranging specialist home care for an individual living with any other condition. This is because high-quality home care is person-centred, meaning that it is entirely tailored to the care and support needs of that individual to ensure that their health and well-being needs are met.

Bespoke dementia home care will consider all aspects of an individual’s daily life, to help them to live well with dementia. In order to fully understand an individual’s requirements, and how they are hoping to benefit from dementia home care services, a care assessment will be carried out. This is essentially a conversation between the individual, their loved ones, and the home care provider, to agree the type, level and frequency of care that the individual is looking for, and to ensure the dementia home care provider is able to meet their needs.

Following the care assessment, a care plan will be put in place which sets out exactly how and when dementia home care services will be provided. This will be reviewed regularly to ensure that the individual’s needs continue to be met, and can updated should the dementia patient’s symptoms of care needs change.
