Dementia can be an overwhelming condition to deal with for many families. When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia it can become difficult to live with and understand what the right approach to care is. Families may feel distant and unable to cope with their loved ones’ conditions due to the nature of the disease. Thankfully, Residential Gardens Home Care can give you that hand to hold and shoulder to lean on to give both the clients and their families the relief they need and deserve.
Dementia is one of the most rapidly growing cognitive conditions affecting older Australians every year. There is an estimated 320,000 Australians currently living with Dementia with an expected increase to 400,000 in less than a decade. There is currently no cure for Dementia but there are a wide range of care strategies available to help manage the condition.
Dementia patients often exhibit signs of confusion, aggression and depression when put in unfamiliar environments. The benefit of providing Dementia care to clients at home is that it can help alleviate these symptoms and give the client a better quality of life surrounded by familiar sights such as family and friends despite the loss of cognitive function.
At Residential Gardens Home Care, our carers and management teams are heavily experienced in managing Dementia conditions and providing the right care for each client. Families have relied on our expertise and skills in managing Dementia cases for years and continue to put their trust in us to this day. We can offer clients with dementia mind-stimulating activities, fruitful social interaction, healthy & wholesome meals and a safe, welcoming environment to reside in.
