Dementia – Alzheimer’s Care Sydney
Memory loss, confusion and disorientation make it difficult for people with dementia to remain in their own homes. With the right kind of support, they can remain in the home they love and by doing so maintain the best quality of life.
When a family member is diagnosed with dementia it can be overwhelming for them and your family and staying in a familiar and safe environment becomes increasingly important.
Our dementia services help you manage the emotional impact of the diagnosis and to prepare for the future. It is important to make decisions early, while your loved one can express their preferences and share their concerns.
We help you and your loved ones understand your options and make the choices that are right for you. Where there are differences of opinion we facilitate family conferences to help your reach agreement.
Dementia typically causes a progressive decline in mental functioning and ability to manage daily activities. These changes can be confusing and distressing to someone with dementia and may result in them becoming agitated or withdrawn.
Most people with dementia want to stay in their home and find other environments disorienting and confusing. However, as their needs increase, most families cannot provide the level of support they need to stay at home. With appropriate support, this can be achieved.
Professional support helps you provide the best quality of life for your loved one. We help you develop familiar routines, develop visual cues around the house and create a safe environment for the person you love.
We can also help you trial approaches such as reminiscence therapy and multisensory stimulation and refer you to other specialist dementia support services where needed
