Why the Home is Crucial to Effective Dementia Care

When a loved one is diagnosed with Dementia, it can be a frightening thing. Many often wonder what type of living arrangements will be made when things become difficult, turning to care homes for help. However, the most effective Dementia care lies in the home.

Why is the home better for Dementia care?

There are different types of care available: care homes, live-in care and hourly visits. Which of these is best suited for you depends on the individual. For someone living with Dementia, home care is often a good idea.

Moving for anyone can be stressful, but for someone living with Dementia, it can be downright frightening. Sudden unfamiliar settings and schedules can be distressing. Studies have shown that dementia care in the home is better than any other setting. Despite memory loss, the home and everyday routines in and around it makes living with Dementia easier. Couples can stay together and friends can visit in a familiar environment. Also, routines can still be maintained. With a few alterations, the home can remain a safe place to be.

This can all be achieved with hourly or live-in care. With Dementia home care, you get a tailored solution. Routines will be the same, and hobbies can still be done. Support is there when it is needed, whether that is around the clock care or just for crucial parts of the day, like getting ready in the morning, going out for a craft group, or winding down for the evening. Home Dementia care can also assist with cooking fresh meals, shopping, and generally ensuring the home is appropriate for someone living with Dementia.
