Alzheimer’s Care - Home Care Services

Alzheimer’s disease should be cared for in specific ways, which is why we provide tailored and specialised Alzheimer’s home care services, to help support not only our clients but also their families and loved ones through such difficult times. Alzheimers is a cruel disease, we can potentially affect anyone, but particularly older people, requiring them to seek specialized care services, to help support and assist them in their everyday life.

Alzheimer’s disease should be cared for in specific ways, which is why we provide tailored and specialised Alzheimer’s home care services, to help support not only our clients but also their families and loved ones through such difficult times. Alzheimers is a cruel disease, we can potentially affect anyone, but particularly older people, requiring them to seek specialized care services, to help support and assist them in their everyday life.

Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia can be very difficult to deal with for both you and your family. Whether you only have mild symptoms, or you are experiencing one of the later stages of the illness, it can be a very challenging time in your life during which we can support you through our specialist care services around Leicester and Bradford. Alzheimer's affects everybody in different ways, which is why it is extremely important to us that each of our clients receives high-quality care and support that suits their needs. At Sova Healthcare, we are aware that every case is very different, this being the reason behind our tailored and personalised assessment process.

We understand how hard Alzheimer’s can be on people and we want to be there for you to allow you to keep living your life as independently, healthily and happily as possible.

To support you, our highly experienced carers will provide compassionate and sensitive Alzheimer’s care for you in your own home. Depending on what help you and your family think you need, they can support you with day-to-day activities that you may find difficult, help stimulate your memory, reassure you and prompt you to remember certain tasks or dates, provide personal care if you need it, and become a kind and caring companion.

We also provide respite care as one of our complex domiciliary care services if you already have a family member or friend caring for you. The frequency of the visits of our carers to your home will be entirely up to you, as we create a dementia home care support plan around your individual needs and personal requirements. Therefore, if you already have a carer and only need us to come and see you once a week this can be arranged, during which your personal carer will provide you with the best care possible in your own home.

At Sova Healthcare we base our Alzheimer’s and Dementia care support plans around the different symptoms that can arise from these illnesses:

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Symptoms

Memory loss

Dementia can cause you to forget. You may have trouble remembering what day it is, or what you started doing. You may also not recognise people anymore. These symptoms can be very frightening and overwhelming, but you are not alone. With their years of experience, our carers build close and trusting relationships with their clients and will be there to reassure you and provide you with the dementia care you need in your own home. They can prompt you to remember certain tasks such as brushing your teeth or walking the dog, they can also help you stimulate your memories with the use of photo albums and scrapbooking. Sometimes just a chat with a friendly companion you trust can help remember and preserve precious memories that you don’t want to lose.

Becoming confused and disorientated

Alzheimer’s and Dementia can cause you to feel unsure and confused. Not remembering where you are or what you are doing is without a doubt frightening, and can therefore be very difficult to deal with. Having somebody you trust there to support you through this and take care of you in your home when you need it is very important – and that’s just what our dementia care services will provide you with. Nobody likes to be told what to do, especially if they don’t fully understand or remember why, therefore our carers are gentle, patient and compassionate in their approach. They will patiently and considerately guide you and assist you when you need it, hereby providing you with the best care services possible.

Becoming socially withdrawn

Dementia can also encourage isolation. Indeed, as time passes you may find that you want to leave your house less and less, causing you to lose contact with friends and family whilst increasingly staying at home. You may have trouble communicating or finishing sentences. We understand how daunting it can be to partake in social activities and to do some of the things that used to be so easy. With gentle encouragement and our continued Alzheimer’s care, we can accompany you and help you take each step at a time to build relationships and enjoy your life with the people who love and care about you. Acquiring a new condition such as Dementia is challenging, which is why we also specialise in complex care home services to help support you through this transition.

Difficulty in carrying out daily activities

Alzheimer’s disease may affect your daily routine. Everyday tasks that you used to be able to perform easily may become more difficult for you if you have dementia. Our live-in carers can help take a load off your mind by helping you with household chores such as cleaning, vacuuming, washing up and laundry to make sure you remain comfortable in your home. We can also assist you with your food shopping and cook your meals for you. Staying healthy is very important, which is why we provide you with nutritious meals that support a healthy and balanced diet as part of our Alzheimer’s and dementia care services. If you are able to perform these household tasks yourself but still have some concerns, our carers can just be there to assist you and help you, our domiciliary care services depend entirely on your personal needs and lifestyle.

Behavioural changes

Dementia might also influence your behaviour, causing you to find that your personality is starting to change. You may become irritable, anxious, panicky or even depressed. Dementia can be tough and nobody should have to go through it alone. With our continued care, support and reassurance Sova Healthcare can help you through this difficult time. The close relationship that you will have formed with your carer will mean that not only you will be able to trust them completely, but they will always be kind, compassionate, understanding and patient with you. Depression can be common for people affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia. In fact, depressive symptoms occur in approximately 45% of Alzheimer’s cases, which is the reason why our carers are trained to recognise symptoms of depression and will refer you to a doctor if they feel you need further psychological or medical support. During this time they will be a constant and dependable carer for you, helping you any way possible.
