Alzheimer's Disease Care
We know how important it is to provide person centred care and support those suffering from cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease. We strive hard to help people managing this progressive condition in their own home for as long as possible, to avoid or delay the move to residential care or nursing homes.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and affects one in three people over the age of 65 years. It is not an inevitable consequence of ageing. It is caused by a physical disease which progressively attacks the brain. The symptoms include:
Difficulty with speech and understanding
Periods of mental confusion
Changes in behaviour and emotional responses
Problems with movement
Loss of confidence
With the right care and support people with Alzheimer’s disease can continue to live well in their own homes, avoiding the need for residential care or nursing homes.
We can offer a range of services to support people with Alzheimer’s so you are able to be as independent as possible and live the life you choose. We believe in working in partnership with the you, your family and other care professionals to provide personalised care and support.

As each person is affected differently, the plan will support you to achieve your specific goals and aspirations. Developing a good relationship with you so they can better understand what is important about the way you wish to live your life. We find out about how you like to communicate, keeping you in control of your care and support as much as possible.
