Familiarity and a friendly face, for those living with dementia
A change of routine and environment can be very daunting for someone who’s living with dementia.
That’s why more families than ever are turning to home care rather than residential care, so their loved one can stay in the place they know and love, Dementia is a term for a range of progressive symptoms and conditions that affect the brain and memory. The brain is made up of billions of neurones (nerve cells) that communicate with each other through chemical signals. If a person has dementia, these neurones are damaged which means that these messages cannot be sent efficiently which in turn affects all functions of the body.
Alzheimer’s is the most common form and the one that we asked to support with the most. It affects more than half a million people in the UK alone. Alzheimer’s is a progressive condition, with time leaving the people and families affected needing extra help and care. At MSH Healthcare we believe in and see the benefits of allowing someone with Alzheimer’s to remain in their own home. The continuity of routine, the familiarity of environment and one to one attention from a specialist dementia carer can make a huge difference to the quality of life.
Our professional carers either visit at agreed times or move into the homes of their customers to provide personal care, housekeeping, companionship and support that’s specially tailored to the needs of the individual.
