Dementia is a frightening disorder which can cause a great deal of distress to the sufferer and a lot of difficulty for those looking after them. The loss of memory and the disorientation experienced when trying to follow conversations or organise themselves makes life harder for sufferers.
If you’re the family member of someone living with dementia, we can lend a helping hand. Kentish Homecare provides a 24-hour care service which uses fully-trained carers who have a wealth of experience assisting the elderly and those with dementia.
Dressing and hygiene
Dementia can have a drastic effect on a person’s ability to process certain actions or organize themselves properly, which is why it’s important to lend a helping hand whenever you can, especially when it comes to hygiene.
Our care services can assist in helping dementia sufferers bathe properly and help wash them. We can also assist in dressing them. Getting dressed is also a difficult task for those with severe dementia, so not only do we help elderly people with their clothing, we also adhere to their chosen style to help them retain their individuality.
Health and diet management
It is crucial to keep those with dementia fit and healthy, physically and mentally, to help them enjoy life more. The better they feel, the happy they can be despite their disorder. A good diet and regular walks and exercise can do wonders for a person’s self-esteem.
Our 24-hour care can ensure that they stay active and have good company with them at all times. We believe in becoming our customer’s friend, as opposed to just a carer. We want them to feel like they’re never alone, even if their family have moved away or their partner has passed away.
