What does it include?

We aim to make people feel better through this service, look forward to visits,
take pride in their appearance, reduce isolation, and preserve life’s dignity.

Providing companionship and emotional support

People with dementia often feel lonely and isolated, so it's important to spend time with them, engage them in conversation, and help them participate in activities they enjoy.

Administering medications

Many people with dementia take medications to manage symptoms or other health conditions, so you may need to help them remember to take their medication on time and in the correct dosage.

Managing appointments and medical care

You may need to schedule and attend appointments with doctors, therapists, or other healthcare providers, and communicate with them about the person's condition and care.

Keeping the person safe

This may involve making modifications to the home environment to prevent falls or other accidents, and ensuring that the person does not wander or get lost.

Assisting with activities of daily living

This may include helping with dressing, bathing, grooming, and toileting, as well as assisting with meal preparation and feeding.

Monitoring and managing behaviours

Dementia can cause changes in behaviour, such as agitation, aggression, and wandering, so you may need to intervene to ensure the safety of the person you are caring for.

Managing finances

If the person you are caring for is unable to manage their own finances, you may need to help with tasks such as paying bills, managing bank accounts, and making financial decisions.

Advocating for the person

You may need to communicate with family members, healthcare providers, or other caregivers to ensure that the person's needs are being met and that their wishes are respected.
