Dementia Care

Dementia Care

FYLDE CARE GROUP

Our homes provide Alzheimer and Dementia support for residents who need help with personal care but have only just received a diagnosis or may be presenting with early or middle stages of Dementia symptoms.

Residential care is twenty-four-hour support ensuring that care is available at the times when you need it most. We recognise that residents may be scared, confused or anxious at times and we help to provide sensitive care in safe and homely surroundings.

With over 20 years of experience in care we offer help and guidance to obtain medical assessments, access professional services and take on daily tasks such as doctors visits, medication management and district nurse visits. We are also able to meet more specific care needs as they develop and by offering a sense of security and supporting wellbeing, we can work together to find a personalised care package that is there when you need it most.

Residents may develop Dementia during their time with us. By starting residential care early our trained carers can recognise early signs and support with diagnosis and care plans.

For individuals that have advanced stages of dementia, we can also help find the next level of care in a nursing (EMI) or specialist Dementia care home (EMD). A specialist care home is for individuals who experience more severe symptoms who would benefit from a higher staffing ratio. Symptoms could include hallucinations, heightened anxieties, behavioural problems, and behaviours that challenge.

      FYLDE CARE GROUP

      Person Centred Care
      Person-centred care helps to ensure people with dementia can take part in the things they enjoy. It can be an effective way of preventing and managing behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia.

      By understanding life history, lifestyle, culture, and preferences, including likes, dislikes, hobbies and interests, care can support situations from the point of view with the person with dementia.

      It is common for people with dementia to develop changes in mood and behaviour. In most cases, with the right person-centred care and support, these changes will pass.

      Tailored Care Plan
      Family, carers, and the person with dementia can help develop a care plan that meets the individuals needs and wishes. Certain activities and tasks may become more difficult, by providing discrete and sensitive care and support, this can help manage symptoms.

      Social Activities and Reminiscing
      By providing opportunities to have relationships with other people and joining in conversation this can reduce anxiety and depression. We also find that ensuring the person has the chance to try new things or taking part in activities they enjoy, can provide a sense of belonging and promote well-being.

      Reminiscing or sharing memories, is an enjoyable way to connect with someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. With dementia, people typically lose short term memory but can remember the past. The goal is to help feel valued, contented, and peaceful remembering happy times.

      Help with Toilet and Incontinence
      We can help residents access the toilet throughout the day and night. We can also support with pads as appropriate. The local continence service is also a major source of information, providing plans for our residents and help and advice on products available.

      Help with Medication
      We can order prescriptions, arrange delivery of medication, and help with taking medication at the right times and with the right meals. We can help organise medication reviews, to optimise the impact of the medicines you are taking and help support the reduction of any medication related problems.
