Dementia is a name given to a set of illnesses that affect the brain.
A change of routine and environment can be very daunting for someone who’s living with dementia. That’s why more families than ever are turning to home care rather than residential care, so their loved one can stay in the place they know and love instead of nursing homes.
There are over 100 forms of Dementia, the most well-known of which is Alzheimer’s – which is sadly being diagnosed much more often in the UK.
The symptoms of Dementia begin by affecting a person’s memory, be it forgetting names, where they have been or what they are planning on doing, this forgetfulness understandably leads to the individual becoming confused and understandably frustrated.
Approximately 750,000 people in the UK have Dementia. It is an illness that doesn’t just affect the person, but also their family and friends.
We’re helping people every day – across all parts of Wolverhampton, Dudley, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Shrewsbury, Birmingham, Telford and beyond – to cope with the various challenges that come with dementia and memory loss.
