Our Hygea Care Professionals are trained to care for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s. They empower clients to make decisions and ensure their safety. They provide relief for family caregivers and maintain a safe environment.

Our professionals go beyond basic care. They assist with personal care, medication, nutrition and hydration, ensuring all aspects of a client’s well-being are taken care of.

Caring for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease involves medical management, emotional support, and creating a safe environment. The goal is to maximise the quality of life for the individual and their family. Establishing a routine with structure and predictability can reduce confusion and agitation.

Tailoring activities to abilities and interests, such as music or art, can promote engagement without causing stress. Clear, straightforward communication and nonverbal cues are essential as verbal communication becomes more challenging.

Home safety modifications, like installing locks and removing hazards, are necessary to prevent accidents. Support for caregivers through respite care and counselling is essential to manage stress.

Legal and financial planning, like setting up power of attorney, should be done early in the disease process.

Overall, caring for someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s requires addressing physical, emotional, and environmental needs while providing support for caregivers.

Home care for individuals with dementia is crucial for meeting their needs and supporting their families. Dementia causes cognitive decline, memory loss, communication difficulties, and changes in behaviour. As the condition progresses, more care and supervision are usually needed.

Home care ensures the safety of individuals with dementia by providing personalised support and preventing risks like wandering and falls. Caregivers help with daily activities and create a familiar environment to reduce confusion and agitation.

Home care gives family caregivers a break and helps prevent burnout. Caregivers also act as a link between individuals with dementia and healthcare professionals, providing updates and ensuring prompt attention to any health issues.

Overall, home care improves the quality of life for individuals with dementia and their families by offering personalised support, maintaining safety, providing respite, and managing dementia-related challenges.
