If you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with dementia, you will naturally feel very concerned. Above all, you will want to make sure they receive the best possible care. But what is the best type of care in these circumstances?
The importance of continuity of care with dementia
Evidence suggests that dementia care works best where the person is able to enjoy continuity of care in familiar surroundings. For most people, this will mean being cared for in their own home.
The comfort and reassurance of regular companionship
What your loved one will appreciate more than anything is the comfort and reassurance of regular companionship. However, this is something that close family members may not be able to provide on a daily basis with the added complications of their own families and careers to manage.
When informal help from family members is not enough
In addition, many family members will feel they are not properly equipped to cope with the challenges of caring for someone with dementia. They may also find the situation emotionally challenging.
Daily visiting care as an interim solution
When it becomes apparent that professional help is needed, many families will opt for daily visiting care. This can include a sitting service as well as a series of shorter daily visits. Many people with dementia are able to manage very happily with the help of daily visiting care.
