Familiarity can be soothing to people suffering from dementia, and there’s nowhere else as familiar as their own home. From little things such as the feel of sitting in their usual spot to knowing how to get to the toilet in time being in a well-known space can be very reassuring. In fact, moving, whether to a residential facility or to a family member’s home, can cause dementia symptoms to worsen.

Not being able to remember where the spoons are kept or needing a little help to choose appropriate clothing doesn’t mean that a person can’t still enjoy an active life gardening, meeting up with friends or walking the dog. A live-in carer supports only the areas of life that their client needs support in, and tailors their support on a daily basis, ensuring independence is maintained for as long as possible.

One-to-one care is extremely important for dementia sufferers who may struggle to recall different faces or be unable to deal with multiple people at the same time. By its very nature live-in care is always one-to-one, and with their specialist dementia support training live-in carers can promote a healthier and happier home.

Dementia is a risk factor for falling. Changes to vision can make the ground appear uneven, or even cause rugs to look like holes in the ground, causing sufferers to stumble and fall. Close supervision and always-there assistance, coupled with remaining in familiar surroundings, work together to reduce the chance that a person will fall when compared to residential care.

To keep residents safe as many as 40% of residential facilities don’t allow their residents to leave the grounds, whereas many live-in care clients find their social lives bloom once they have the support of a carer to escort them.
