High Care – Caring for someone with Dementia

Dementia is a brain disorder which can cause various symptoms like memory issues, confusion, disorientation and isolation. Patients who need extra care and assistance with their daily errands need high care facilities. The early stages of dementia is often the most difficult time to diagnose as the symptoms are extremely mild.
Based on their personal and individual needs, the best high care facilities are provided to dementia patients in any aged care facility. During the home care assessment process, specific home care needs, preferences and choices are noted for every patient so that they are comfortable and happy with the support and assistance provided as part of high care facilities.
For someone suffering from dementia, the care giver should provide compassionate support and be sensitive in order to preserve their self confidence. Looking after a dementia patient also includes taking care of their health and diet combined with regular exercise.
