Dementia Care

Professional, comfortable, personal dementia care.

Research suggests that if you’re struggling with memory loss, the best place to be is within the familiar surroundings of home.

With Home Instead, your personally-assigned CAREGiver can help you handle all your regular day-to-day tasks, and help make living at home as simple and stress-free as possible.

Our unique approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care

At Home Instead, our central care philosophy is centered around helping those with dementia to continue living at home. We believe in prioritising your safety and independence, and maintaining your highest quality of life.

Having pioneered memory care training, and by continuously working to develop a best practice training program for educated, in-home CAREGivers, our specialist Dementia Training Program equips our CAREGivers to deliver distinctive memory care, based on research and experience. Rather than focusing on the diagnosis and symptoms, our specialist dementia care focuses on maximising abilities and maintaining your/your loved ones independence and dignity.

Our relationship-based approach to dementia care enables Home Instead CAREGivers to provide you with personalised care that:

  • Helps you remain safe and calm at home
  • Encourages engagement
  • Provides nutritious meals
  • Creates social interaction
  • Provides mind-stimulating activities
  • Honours your proud life’s work and history
  • Supervises activities of daily living
  • Supports the family.

We don’t just provide this training to our professional CAREGivers. We know family carers are looking for help too. That’s why we also provide education and support for family members and caregivers who help support you.

Carol – Her Story

 

“My Mum had a stroke 4 years ago and she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I’ve tried to get the right help for a long time and then I found Home Instead. The team have supported and helped me through everything. The services are very reliable, personal, genuine, caring, and understanding. If there is ever something that’s needed, they are onto it straight away, they will ring me and the communication is always comforting, happy, and always nice – I wouldn’t recommend anyone else” – Carol
