Bespoke Dementia Care
Did you know that dementia care requires a unique approach compared to regular or elderly care?
- Dementia affects the brain, requiring specialised support and interventions.
- Dementia care requires personalised support and structured environments.
- Specialised trained carers are essential for dementia support, equipped to manage behavioural changes and and provide tailored, compassionate support.
Understanding these differences is crucial to providing the best care for individuals with dementia. To ensure your loved one receives the specialised care they deserve, consider seeking help from Hub Care Support. Our extensive networks of Personal Assistants are dedicated to providing personalised, compassionate care. Many have the necessary experience for supporting individuals with dementia and have received additional training tailored to the unique needs of those with dementia.
Dementia is an umbrella term encompassing a range of progressive brain conditions. While it is typically diagnosed in individuals over 65, dementia can affect people of any age.
The brain consists of nerve cells that communicate by sending messages to one another. In a person with dementia, these nerve cells become damaged, hindering effective message transmission and impairing normal brain function.
There are over 200 variations and causes of dementia, with the four most common types being:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Vascular dementia
- Frontotemporal dementia
- Dementia with Lewy bodies
By understanding the nature of dementia and its impact on the brain, we can better support those affected by this condition and work towards improving their quality of life.
Dementia presents a variety of symptoms that can significantly impact a person’s daily life. Take a look at some of the most common signs that may indicate the presence of this condition.
How a Hub Personal Assistant can an Individual with Dementia:
A Hub PA can help the person who has dementia to live more comfortably in the comfort of their own home. With the Hub, you can choose the individual that will provide support. This means they can expect the same friendly face every visit and be reassured that they know the needs of the individual with dementia, reducing stress and anxiety. Help can include assistance with domestic tasks, including meal preparation, personal care, and companionship. This type of care can help ensure a positive impact on everyone involved, bringing reassurance, reducing pressure and improving the individual and family’s quality of life.
How a Hub Personal Assistant Can Help the Family:
A Hub PA will provide familiarity, and the same carer will come simultaneously on the requested days. Our Personal Assistants are highly trained to manage distressing behaviours often associated with dementia clients calmly.
Your PA will take on many of the daily tasks of caring for your loved one, allowing family members more time for themselves. Even if you are a full-time carer, having the peace of mind to take a moment for yourself provides stress relief and time to maintain a more independent lifestyle.
