A diagnosis of dementia comes as a shock, and as the disease progresses both the client and their family can experience distressing and worrying times.
Clients with dementia need a great deal of reassurance and support to help them feel less isolated by their disease.
There is much that can be done to help to make life easier and more enjoyable, both for the client and family members. The difference that one-to-one care in the home can make is remarkable and, with skilled and trained carers, the quality of life, both for those with the disease and for their families is greatly enhanced.
Corinium Care prides itself on the quality of its training in dementia care, which is an important part of the training programme provided for all of our live-in carers.
The carer’s knowledge and skills, combined with patience, encouragement and a confidence-boosting approach do much to allay the distressing fears and practical difficulties encountered by those with dementia. Familiar surroundings and routines offer a reassuring and structured environment.
With a Corinium carer living in the home, families can be safe in the knowledge that their relative’s days will be as free of anxiety as possible under the expert care of a patient and understanding professional.
For many of our clients and their families, being able to stay in their own home for as long as possible, surrounded by familiar things can help reconcile them to the uncertain future that dementia brings.
