We specialise in Dementia Care. When we allocate a dementia trained carer to a person with a dementia, it is done with a view to promoting routine and stability. That consistency lends itself to early identification of changes which can then be acted upon. IF you wish to read about a Dementia Care example, you can see Betty’s story here:
Elizabeth, or Betty as she prefers, is 74 and a widow of 10 years living alone. She has relatives nearby who do visit, though this has recently reduced as they found it increasingly difficult to manage Betty following a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, a form of Dementia.
Betty’s relatives referred her to Social Services for support. Social Services then commissioned her care from Choice Care. She needed a full range of care as she was starting to neglect herself and could not manage her own personal care, toileting, meals, medication or mobility well herself. A care plan was put forward by the social worker for the
care professionals to mange all aspects of Betty’s care. Prior to the start of the care we arranged to meet Betty and her relatives to further develop a care plan that meets Betty’s needs and considers those of her family. She now has two care professionals for three visits each day, every day, is always well presented and takes her medication, which is essential to manage her dementia, resulting her being able to remain in her home. Her relatives visit regularly making her tea each day and take her on social outings.
