There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK. By 2021, over 940,000 people living with dementia, which will soar to 1.7 million by 2050.
These are not just statistics; they represent millions of families with loved ones who require special care, both at home and in nursing homes.
If you are struggling to care for a loved one with dementia it is important to remember you are not alone. Almost 2,000 families like yours have trusted Carers to provide one-on-one home care for loved ones with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
Major Oak Homecare's carers complete a training programme delivered by the Alzheimer's society. This means our carers, get the very best advice and guidance, in turn, you can be assured your loved one is getting the very best care through, maintaining a safe environment, manage changing behaviours, providing nutritious meals, providing mind-stimulating activities, creating social interaction and supervising daily activities.
Our expertly trained palliative care team have all received specialist end of life training, we understand the need to listen to individuals, and always ensure, empathetic, compassionate care.
We aim to improve the quality of life, support the individual and their loved ones. Knowing when to listen, when to talk, when to stay silent, providing comfort, continuous support, and reassurance helps a dying person experience the death he or she wants.
This kind of support can range from personal care, nutrition and diet, washing and dressing, laundry, shopping, medication collection, cleaning and gardening.
Our experience and research tell us that recovery rates at home are better than in a hospital, and the reality is that most people are keen to return home. Our live-in convalescent carers offer the best possible way to recuperate after a period of illness, or following an operation.
Our live-in carers meet the needs of each individual client. For many people, the level of care they receive at home, with a 24/7 live-in carer, will enhance the speed and quality of recovery.
It is also easier to achieve an earlier discharge from hospital if you have a 24-hour live-in carer organised to provide the level of help and care needed to ensure a safe recovery.
For a family member who needs the highest level of attention, a live-in carer is a great choice. With a dedicated presence 24/7, you can be confident that your elder family member is in safe hands and this is the peace of mind which can only be experienced with round-the-clock care.
