Dementia Home Care
Learning that an ageing parent or loved one is developing Dementia can be distressing for family members. There’s a lot to do to ensure they’re well taken care of, including familiarizing yourself with the medical condition. But, you don’t have to do it alone. Getting help to take care of your loved one is a great first step to providing them with the proper care.
Asking for help
Many people find it difficult to ask for help when it comes to home care for their loved ones. However, certain medical conditions and diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Dementia, require an expert that’s trained in the field to provide the right care.
Dementia is a range of conditions that primarily affect one’s memory, language, thinking and ability to perform daily tasks. It’s usually caused by Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, symptoms of Dementia vary from person to person, including how the disease progresses.
This increases the need to hire a professional that’s already familiar with the condition. Trying to learn everything on the go by yourself not only makes the situation more stressful but also difficult to cope with.
Let us help
At Pulmy Home Care service, we offer reliable Dementia home care, taking the burden off your back. Our experienced caregivers are highly trained and skilled in person-centred Alzheimer’s and Dementia care at home in Ireland.
Our Dementia home care approach provides your loved one with the support they need and helps them stay safe at home at all times.
We strive to understand the specific needs of your loved one’s Dementia first before providing any Dementia home care. So, we’ll set up a consultation with you, whether in-person or on the phone, to discuss your loved one’s life story. We can also meet their family and friends to better understand their personality and interests.
All this goes a long way in allowing us to meet your loved one’s care needs and improve their quality of life. For example, a detail as small as their favourite song can help us calm them down when they’re having a bad day.
If you’re the primary caregiver and need a break from the exhausting role, we can provide short-term respite care. This allows you to get away from all your caregiving obligations for a while to unwind and reset.
With our expertise, you can rest assured that you’ll have the right team in place to look after your loved one with Dementia.
