Trusted Dementia Care in the Comfort of Home

The realisation that someone you love has dementia can be an emotional and stressful time. With our many years of experience in providing dementia care, in its many forms and from early onset to advanced dementia, we understand what you are going through, how challenging it can be, and we are here to help.

Outstanding Dementia Care at Home

We can help guide and support you to find the right level of care for your loved one suffering from dementia. In our care, we will do everything in our power to ensure your loved one continues to live as full and enjoyable a life as possible. Our care is regulated and rated Outstanding and Good across all branches by the CQC, which means you and your loved one are in the best hands. With Berkeley Home Health you will have complete peace of mind.

Knowing the importance of structure and familiarity for a person affected by dementia, our visiting and live-in dementia care at home team will take careful note of preferences, interests, hobbies and life history to ensure that they can continue to follow their normal routines as much as possible. Whether it’s cooking their preferred meals, looking after much-loved pets or visiting favourite places, our one-to-one care helps provide a sense of security and normality for someone living with dementia.

Your Dementia Carer

We ensure that your dementia carer is the very best. They are expertly trained to recognise the various types of dementia, its symptoms and how the disease affects daily life including loss of memory, word-finding difficulties, problem-solving and other cognitive abilities to provide the very best, informed dementia care at home.

Your Berkeley dementia carer will know how to manage the challenges that living with dementia brings while being mindful that each person is affected differently and requires their own unique support plan. Your dementia carer is there to help support with the things your loved one is struggling with, and in advanced cases, do whatever your loved one can no longer do for themselves. Your carer will prompt, reassure and encourage as much as possible to enable your loved one to continue to live as normal a life as possible, for as long as possible.

We are proud to provide outstanding visiting and live-in dementia care at home, supporting families and individuals across the UK, and help them remain in the homes they know and love.

What is Dementia Care at Home?

Clients with dementia need a great deal of reassurance and support to help them feel less isolated and more oriented. With a highly-skilled full-time or visiting one-to-one dementia carer in the home, the quality of life, both for those with the condition and for their families, is greatly enhanced. This is a much-loved alternative to leaving the familiar surroundings of home and moving into a care facility.

A care plan is carefully tailored to your loved one’s individual dementia needs and circumstances, including an assessment of specific symptoms that are being experienced. By conducting a full home assessment while working with the family, your GP and other healthcare professionals, we are able to provide a complete Care Plan that meets the specific needs of your loved one. See The Process of Arranging Care below for more details on this and more.

What is Live-In Dementia Care

In addition to providing hourly visiting care, we provide full-time live-in dementia care at home which is the safest and most popular option. Our fully trained carers move into the home of your loved one and provide full-time care and support according to their personalised care plan and specific needs, day and night. You can be safe in the knowledge that their days will be as free of anxiety as possible under the expert care of a patient and understanding professional.

Live-in Care: the best kind of care for dementia sufferers

Opting for live-in care in their own home is one of the best support options you can choose for your loved one suffering from Dementia.

Live-in care provides unsurpassed continuity of care. Your loved one will have a single dedicated carer providing full-time, one-to-one, flexible care and support as and when they need it. Your carer stays with your loved one for several weeks at a time. They build up a close relationship and very good understanding of their support needs. They encourage your loved one to continue to follow their familiar routine which helps minimise the effects of dementia and reduce any anxiety they may feel because of their reduced mental abilities.

Choosing live-in care also means less confusion and uncertainty for your loved one as it allows them to stay in familiar surroundings with the things they know and love.

Choose Live-in Dementia Care Over Moving to a Care Home

Dementia care at home is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to having to move into a care home.

We know that the vast majority of people would prefer to be cared for at home rather than moving into a care home, and studies have demonstrated that home care is better for overall health and wellbeing. It is much less of an upheaval and less disorienting than moving into a care home.

Contrary to popular belief, the cost of live-in care is an affordable alternative to a care home with the additional benefits of one-to-one care tailored to your individual needs.

Depending on the level of need, it may be possible for one carer to support more than one individual in which case the fees are particularly affordable because we only charge a nominal extra amount for a second person in the same household. We regularly arrange care where multiple carers are required; putting your safety and that of the carers as our priority.
