Dementia care provides specialist support to those who are suffering with dementia and require some extra assistance. Support for Dementia can either be provided in the comfort of the individuals own home, or in a care/nursing home.

The benefits of finding a suitable dementia home for your loved one are plentiful. Not only will they be provided with 24 hour care and support from staff, but also a safe environment and they will have the option to engage in social activities with fellow residents.
Before moving into a home, an assessment will be carried out on your loved one by Social Services. They will determine whether your loved one would benefit from being moved into a care home. Should they believe that this is the best option, the next step will be to have a financial assessment which will uncover whether your loved one is eligible for any funding from the Council.
There are different types of home that may be suitable for individuals with dementia, dependent on care needs. Residential care homes are able to assist people with daily tasks, such as: washing, dressing, eating, prompting to take medication and support mobilising. Whereas nursing homes support people with more complex care needs that require the support of a registered Nurse. Specialist nursing dementia care is normally referred to as EMI care (Elderly, Mentally Infirm) and support is provided in dedicated EMI units within the nursing home. EMI beds can be available in some residential and nursing homes. All of these types of home will have staff who are trained in supporting people with dementia.
It is also possible for individuals to have dementia care provided to them in the familiar setting of their own home. They will receive practical support as well as constant reassurance from caregivers who are fully trained to support people living with dementia. Before a package of care can begin, a full home assessment will be carried out at your loved ones home which will enable the home care provider to create a care plan tailored to their personal needs.
