Dementia & Alzheimer's Care 

Dementia & Alzheimer's Care 

We understand that dementia does not define a person and and we ensure that our staff and personalised Care Plans are flexible and adaptable in order to help clients have the most positive experience. 

"There is hope in dementia, it lies in how we provide care"* 

Dementia is a group of symptoms. It is caused by different diseases that damage the brain. The symptoms get worse over time and include memory loss, confusion and needing help with daily tasks, problems with language and understanding and changes in behaviour. Dementia is progressive, which means symptoms may be relatively mild at first, but they get worse over time.** 
Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, affecting 62 per cent of those diagnosed, but there are over 100 types. There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease or any other type of dementia, however it is possible to live well with the right support and help. This support and help comes in many forms from many different people including health and social care professionals, legal professionals, the local community, and voluntary or charitable organisations. 

Personalised Care Plans 

At Nest Homecare, we understand that dementia does not define a person and and we ensure that our staff and personalised Care Plans are flexible and adaptable in order to help clients have the most positive experience. We engage in meaningful activity based around the client's preferences, background and circumstances. We are on-hand to provide advice on all aspects linked the condition and can help sign-post you and your family towards finding the right help and support every step of the way. Whatever the stage and whatever the challenge you are facing, we're here to help.

It's all about providing Person-centred care 

At Nest we understand the effects that dementia can have on some-one's life and how it impacts their experiences. Our Care Assistants are selected on their ability to see things from the perspective of the person with dementia and so they can focus on life history, personality, likes, dislikes and how the person feels rather than what they remember. We constantly provide experience-based training to all staff so there is continual improvement in our learning. Nest will support your loved one to take part in stimulating activities that they enjoy - helping them remain independent, happy and safe whether that's looking at old photos and memorabilia or a visit to the shops. Every person is different, and dementia affects each person in a different way. 

A tailored plan for your exact needs 

Our main priority is to treat every client as an individual which is why we will tailor a care plan to your exact needs. We work with national and local organisations, such as The Alzheimer's Society and Dementia UK to help train and develop our Care Team so we can provide person-centred care. It is our goal to provide the very best support to clients and their families. We are active within the local community supporting people with dementia by taking part in fundraising activities. Many of our Care Team are Dementia Friends Champions and we frequently hold Dementia Friends sessions enabling our staff, local businesses to become Dementia Friends themselves - something we are extremely passionate about.
