Caring for a loved one with dementia poses many challenges for families and caregivers. People with dementia from conditions such as Alzheimer’s and related diseases have a progressive biological brain disorder that makes it more and more difficult for them to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others, and take care of themselves. We understand it can be a difficult decision for close family members to move loved ones into full time care, but at Old Vicarage Care Home we do everything we can to make this transition as easy and comfortable as possible.
Our specialist team provide round the clock care for residents with dementia. It is a complex disorder which can be displayed often with dramatic changes in behaviour, such as:
• Troubling Behaviour
• Memory Loss
• Repetitive Speech or Actions
• Sleeplessness / unusual sleeping patterns
• A lack in personal hygiene
• Unusual eating patterns
We understand all aspects of the disorder and are well equipped to ensure your loved one is treated with the upmost respect and compassion.
