Receive a free consultation to discuss or arrange dementia care
Arrange care. Do you have a loved one in need of care? Does your loved one desire to remain in the comfort of their own home rather than live in a care home? Whether they need specialist care (dementia, alzheimer’s, end of life care) or if they are in need of companionship or help around the house (cooking, cleaning, taking the bins out, mobility support), we’ve got you covered! Get in contact with us to arrange care!
Discuss care. We aren’t only here to arrange care, we are also on hand to answer any questions you have. If you’re not fully sure what you or your loved one need and just want to clear up a few questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us. We are here to help you.
Areas we cover
What is Dementia Care?
Dementia is a general term that describe issues with memory, behaviour and thought patterns. Symptoms start off slowly and then become worse over a long period of time. Alzheimer’s disease is responsible for the majority of dementia cases, while vascular dementia is the second most common type of dementia.
Your loved one may find that the issues associated with dementia become too difficult to handle. These issues may begin to interfere with their day to day lives. At this point, you or your loved one should seek out a high quality care provider to ensure the best care and support is received.
Dementia care aims to help with the following things:
- Decreases and absences in memory function
- Behavioural changes
- Time/date/place confusion and disorientation
- Home help including, but not limited to: hoovering, ironing, filling out and collection of prescriptions and putting out bins
- Social interaction with others
The importance of dementia care at home
Receiving dementia care at home can be very important when it comes to bringing your loved one back into their original state. Sentimental items, old photographs or even just being at the home that has generated many memories over the years can all help pull someone out of a confused state. Due to potential confusion and disorientation issues, it’s important that you or your loved one are in a comfortable and familiar setting – so that when confusion or disorientation occur, the individual will feel instantly safe again once their issue has subsided.
Why Penwith Care?
We all have difficulties in our lives, particularly when it comes to Dementia. You or your loved one should not go through these difficulties alone. It’s important to have good quality treatment and assistance from the right care provider. However, we understand that it’s difficult to find the right care provider, many care providers are essentially the same. We think Penwith Care is different, however.
We have been caring for people across Cornwall for 11 years. Our caregivers are trained to a high standard and have experience spanning over many years. In addition to this, we are fully rated and regulated by the CQC and have cared for 750 individuals within Cornwall since 2010.
