Helping you to Care with Confidence
80% of Dementia Care is undertaken by unpaid family members who report high levels of caregiver stress & burnout. We help family members of persons living with dementia, who feel overwhelmed with the burden of care, by providing consultation, education & support so they have the peace of mind to confidently care for their loved one.
Caring for a loved one experiencing cognitive decline can be particularly challenging. They may not be aware of the difficulties they are experiencing, and become upset and defensive if you suggest they may need help. If you have concerns about the health of a loved one, contact us to receive:
- Guidance on how to make first steps in getting your loved one the care services they need.
- In-depth understanding of the condition, so you can be aware of what to expect, and how to plan accordingly to ensure optimal support for both you and your loved one.
- Practical strategies to help you to better care for your loved one at home
- Crisis intervention coaching- to help de-escalate situations that arise as a result of the Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms (BPSD) often associated with Dementia.
“The assessments were conducted in my aunt’s home in an environment that she was familiar with and would be living in. This patient-centered approach focused on her specific needs including all aspects of activities of daily living. The Occupational Therapist engaged my aunt the entire time, asking specific questions of her, watching and assessing her. The assessment provided us as a family with a greater appreciation of what my aunt’s current needs were, and helped prepare us for her future care needs, in order to keep her safely at home all whilst helping to promote her independence, dignity and respect”
