Dementia Support Services for Individuals Living at Home in Australia

Dementia can be a challenging condition, whether you are caring for a loved one with dementia or you are the one experiencing it. At Home Caring, we appreciate that managing dementia care, for yourself or for a relative, comes with unique challenges. This is why our team of carers and trained nurses can provide personalised dementia support in the comfort of your own home.

What Does Dementia Support Look Like With Home Caring Services

Our carers and nurses are trained to deliver personalised and specialist dementia support services. When you get in touch with Home Caring team, we can discuss how you can use your Home Care Package to access our dementia support range:

In Home Dementia Care

Home Caring specialises in providing professional dementia support in the comfort of your own home. Our experienced NDIS carers work in major cities and regional areas all across Australia. We bring over 10 years of expertise in delivering flexible, convenient, and high-quality dementia support services at home.

Here, our team of carers can help with a variety of needs, ensuring you can maintain some level of independence inside your home.

Guidance and Support for Family Members

Dealing with dementia can be emotionally demanding, both for the individual with dementia and their family. Home Caring provides guidance and emotional support to family members, helping them navigate the challenges associated with dementia care.

Light Household Chores

We can help you maintain a safe and tidy home environment as part of our dementia support services. Our caregivers assist with light household chores, such as cleaning or laundry, which can ensure your living environment remains safe and welcoming. Household chores can become challenging for individuals with dementia.

Personal Care

Even for individuals with mild dementia symptoms, personal hygiene can become difficult. These skills decrease in severe dementia. So, you can ask our caregivers to support you and help with personal care activities, including bathing, grooming, and dressing. We believe this is essential to maintain the dignity and comfort of individuals with dementia.

Medication Management

Effective management of medications is critical in dementia care. Home Caring’s qualified staff ensures that medication schedules are closely monitored and adhered to at home.

Daily Activities and Cognitive Stimulation

We are committed to working with you and slowing down the progress of dementia. Our carers can plan daily activities and cognitive stimulation to help preserve your cognitive function as part of our dementia support service. Home Caring incorporates tailored activities to stimulate the mind and enhance overall well-being.

Meal Preparation and Nutrition

You can rest assured that our carers will help look after an individual with dementia in every aspect. Elderly individuals with dementia are more prone to forget nutrition. So, an important aspect of our dementia support is to help them prepare balanced meals and eat.

Companionship and Emotional Support

Beyond physical dementia support, our carers also recognise the importance of establishing meaningful emotional connections. We are committed to providing companionship and emotional support to individuals living with dementia.

Support with Mobility

We know that dementia can affect a lot more than your memory. Therefore, we can work with you to help you maintain your mobility for longer and preserve your independence at home. Our team provides dementia support around mobility, helping individuals with dementia move around safely.

We can also provide transportation services, ensuring you can remain mobile within your community, such as attending important events or activities locally.

Our team of qualified nurses and NDIS-registered carers are also dedicated to supporting individuals with severe dementia symptoms to maintain a comfortable and safe life at home. Therefore, our dementia support also includes more advanced services. The level of care you need will be determined as part of your Home Care Package programme.

Home Modifications

Creating a dementia-friendly home is essential for safety. Home Caring can provide advice and support with home modification services to adapt living spaces, making them more suitable and secure for individuals with dementia.

Support for Severe Behaviors and Psychological Symptoms

Our professional team is trained to handle severe behaviours and psychological symptoms associated with dementia. We can help develop specialised care plans to address the unique challenges posed by these symptoms.

24/7 Care

For individuals with complex needs, our 24/7 dementia support services offer round-the-clock assistance, providing peace of mind for both the person with dementia and their family.

Coordination with Healthcare Professionals

Home Caring’s team collaborates with healthcare professionals to ensure you can receive comprehensive and holistic care as part of our dementia support. This includes coordinating with doctors and working with allied health professionals to integrate specialist therapies.

We are also proud to provide dementia support to those who choose to care for a relative with dementia. As a carer, you need to take a break from time to time.

Our dementia support respite care services offer a temporary break, ensuring that you have the opportunity to recharge while we care for your relative with dementia.
