What is Dementia Homecare?

Dementia Homecare offers professional care services at home for people living with dementia. You can arrange a level of dementia care at home to suit your unique needs, from non-medical care such as help around the house and general daily living, to clinical care delivered by a medical professional. Dementia home care allows you or your loved one to remain in the comfort of a familiar environment, even if it’s no longer safe to be living entirely alone. For many, dementia homecare also allows families to have some respite if they have been responsible for delivering care for their loved one.

Ken and Margaret's Story

“I can trust them; I can go to the shops or on a walk on my own and not have to worry. Before this agency, for me to go out, my daughter had to come and watch over Ken. I know we had a carer, but my daughter had to come as we did not feel happy leaving Ken alone with his carer at the time. This is the biggest change in my personal life, having the independence and trust to go out knowing that Ken is well looked after and that my daughter does not need to be there every time”

- Margaret, Ken's Wife
