Dementia Care

Dementia affects around 800’000 people living in the UK, two thirds of those are living within the community. (Alzheimer’s Society statistics 2012). 

Dementia is a group of related symptoms associated with an ongoing decline of the brain and its abilities. This is a progressive illness which will worsen over time, although the length of time will vary from person to person. 

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia and accounts for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Some of the symptoms of dementia are: 

  • Speed of thought process
  • Loss of memory
  • Behavioural changes
  • Understanding
  • Judgment

People are living longer, we have an aging population and as a result those diagnosed with dementia is increasing.  All our staff receive Dementia Awareness training, this gives them the necessary skills and knowledge to support customers with their dementia whilst promoting their independence.We work closely with relatives and other care professionals in order to tailor care packages so that they reflect a person’s wishes and preferences. Reviews and spot checks are carried out throughout the year to identify what is working well or how we could improve our service.

We are committed to making a positive difference and look at opportunities to develop and expand our knowledge and services in order to provide the very best in quality care.

Complete Care recognises the importance of supporting people with dementia, in their own homes for as long as possible.
