I wanted to write to say a belated but heartfelt thank you to the ENA Team. I have learned a great deal recently from witnessing the very constructive, sympathetic approach your carers have adopted in these situations. Earlier this year and end of last seemed to be a particularly tough time and I was very impressed with the improvement of Mum's wellbeing following the meeting that you and your team conducted with her and the subsequent actions you took. The professional and caring way you handled this including bringing the team to our home must have taken a lot of time, expertise and careful thought. We (mother, cousin and I) just wanted you to know that we really appreciate all that you have done.”
What is dementia care?
Much of what we have learnt about dementia is that routine and familiarity helps manage the symptoms of dementia. Becoming more forgetful is a natural part of ageing but dementia can affect a person’s ability to plan or engage in conversation and can affect their mood or behaviour.
Having a dementia carer at home is the same as our live-in care service. We treat each of our clients as individuals who require a carer that is bespoke to them. Our carers who assist those living with dementia, provide one-to-one care and enable our client’s to live at home, amongst their familiar surroundings and routine.
