"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.**
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.
