Dementia Care in Wirral
What does Dementia Care mean?
Dementia is a condition that most commonly affects the cognitive functions of those living with it, such as their ability to think, remember and communicate. There are varying levels and types of dementia and it can affect people in all different ways. Dementia care is designed to provide support and assistance to those living with the progressive condition, and there are a number of ways in which someone can receive dementia dare, such as in a Residential Care Home or Nursing Home.
Where and how support for those living with dementia is provided is dependent on the person, as symptoms and severity differ in each case. Recognising the signs and symptoms of dementia is the first step in identifying what support is needed for yourself or a loved one. Signs of early to mid-stages of dementia can look like forgetting dates or appointments, struggling in social situations, and experiencing difficulty with day-to-day tasks and chores.
Dementia is a progressive condition, meaning that symptoms worsen, though these are also at differing rates for each person living with the condition. A more advanced level of dementia can cause those to lose awareness of their surroundings and experiences and require help with mobility and communication. Assessments can be carried out to help determine what support is needed. A care home will provide a supportive environment where specialised and professional care is given 24/7 by a team of Nurses.
