Dementia Care Service

Definition: Dementia is a loss of mental ability severe enough to interfere with normal activities of daily living, lasting more than six months, not present since birth, and not associated with a loss or alteration of consciousness. Description: Dementia is a group of symptoms caused by gradual death of brain cells. The loss of cognitive abilities that occurs with dementia leads to impairments in memory, reasoning, planning and behaviour. While the overwhelming numbers of people with dementia are elderly, dementia is not an inevitable part of aging; instead, dementia is caused by specific brain diseases. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause, followed by vascular or multi-infarct dementia.

The prevalence of dementia is difficult to determine, partly because of differences in definition among different studies and partly because there is some normal decline in functional ability with age. The prevalence of dementia roughly doubles for every five years of age beginning at age 60. Dementia affects about 1% of people between ages 60 and 64, 5-8% of all people between ages 65 and 74, up to 20% of those between 75 and 84, and between 30% and 50% of those age 85 and older. About 60% of nursing home patients have dementia.

The cost of dementia can be considerable. While most people with dementia are retired and are not affected by income losses from their disease, the cost of Care is often enormous. Financial burdens include lost wages for family caregivers, medical supplies and drugs, and home modifications to ensure safety. The psychological cost is not as easily quantifiable but can be even more profound. The person with dementia loses control of many of the essential features of his/her life and personality, and loved ones lose a family member even as they continue to cope with the burdens of increasing dependence and unpredictability.

 

Our service users value the high level of live-in care we provide. It includes our help in getting up, preparing breakfast, getting dressed etc.

Care for older people

Live-in care becomes a perfect alternative to residential care, especially if your loving person wants to age in familiar environment.

It’s natural to want to stay at home as you grow older. However, taking a step back to look at the big picture can help you decide whether staying at home for the long term truly is the right step for you. Take a look at your options, your budget, and some of the alternatives.

 
 

Our company is committed to developing innovative programs and expanding services, such as providing transportation for our nurses to enable us to serve hard-to-reach areas and a shopping service for our patients who are unable to shop for themselves.

Our goal is to enable the physically challenged, the elderly in need, the patient recovering from an illness or accident, and others confined to their homes to maintain their independence.

Education of our entire staff is constant through our special in-service courses. Our commitment to excellence continues through our comprehensive curriculum, skills validation, and mandatory continuing education program.

Direct Payment

A direct payment (DP) is money given to individuals service user by social services departments to buy they care support they have been assessed as needing from a provider. Direct payments are a comparatively new approach to supporting disabled people to lead more independent lives and exercise choice and control over the services they receive.

KEY PRINCIPLES IN DIRECT PAYMENT SERVICE CONDUCT

Self-determination

Each person should be in control of their own life and, if they need help with decisions, those decisions are kept as close as possible to them. This includes people with severe and profound disabilities who, with the right help and support, can make important choices and express preferences about their day-to-day lives. Services shall enable Service Users to make choices through the provision of support and information, including choices about responsibilities and consequences.

Direction

Each person should have their own path and sense of purpose to help give their like meaning and significance.

Money

Each person should have enough money to live an independent life and are not unduly dependent upon others.

Home

Each person should have a home that is their own, living with people that they really want to live.

Support

Each person should get support that helps them to live their own life and which is under their control.

Community life

Each person should be able to fully participate in and contribute to family and community life.

Rights

Each person should have their legal and civil rights respected and be able to take action if they are not. Services will ensure that all members of its workforce treat Service Users with dignity and respect in accordance with the Department of Health’s ‘Dignity in Care’ policy and ‘End of Life’ guidelines and challenge discrimination on all grounds including age, disability and mental health needs. Service Providers should have a ‘Dignity Champion’ who is responsible for promoting the Dignity Agenda.

Responsibilities

Each person should exercise responsibility in their own lives and be able to make a contribution to their community.

Independence

While Service Users’ individual needs will differ, the starting point should be one of independence, rather than dependence, with the service providing the support needed to maximise this. Independence in this context does not mean doing everything unaided – where a Service User needs support with an activity, the focus will be on ‘doing with’ the person rather than ‘doing for’ them.

Promoting Independence

Service Users who have previously lived more independently but now require care and support will be supported in a way that maximises each citizen’s potential to regain skills and confidence.

Developing Competence

      Service Users should have opportunities to develop new skills throughout their lives, by building on their existing capabilities in a variety of settings with a variety of means to enable them to be as fully involved in the community as possible. Age or disability should not be considered a barrier to this.

Recovery

Service Users with mental health needs will be supported in a manner consistent with the Recovery Model: an approach that emphasizes and supports each individual's potential for recovery. Recovery is seen within the model as a personal journey that may involve developing hope, a secure base and sense of self, supportive relationships, empowerment, social inclusion, coping skills, and meaning.

Culture and Individuality

The services provided shall be appropriate to individual need, reflecting age and gender considerations, culture, disability, race and sexuality. All Service Users should be valued for who they are.

Equal Opportunities

The Council is committed to Equal Opportunities in the provision of services. The Council’s Equal Opportunities Policy requires that all Providers recognise and respect cultural and religious diversity and offer the Service to all sections of our local communities.
