Professional dementia care at home
My Care Solution understand the importance of living at home, especially for those living with dementia. Our dementia care services are delivered at home to promote your safety and independence.
We have been at the forefront of dementia care at home since we opened our doors. All of our caregivers are trained in the Montessori for Dementia approach. This approach encourages mental and physical abilities for as long as possible. Our other best practice techniques have been shown to provide reassurance, reduce anxiety, and calm behaviour.
Our dementia care training does not stop there. Our caregivers receive ongoing mentoring based on the most up-to-date thinking and research. This guarantees that they have the knowledge and skills to provide quality dementia care in the home.
Your Client Care Coordinator will work closely with you to ensure that your services evolve as your needs change. This includes liaising with your small care team and other health professionals that are involved in your care. Additionally, our in-house dementia specialist is always on-hand to help you connect with other supports in the community. Our dementia specialist also helps families and carers navigate their way through the dementia care journey.
We understand that for people living with dementia, the introduction of some therapies can be beneficial. During the later stages of dementia, our caregivers are trained to integrate and deliver validation therapy. Validation therapy for dementia means entering the reality of a person living with dementia. This therapy allows our staff to connect with clients through listening and dignified care.
Other dementia therapies, such as music therapy and reminiscence, are also available.
Continue living in the comfort of home
If you are living with dementia and wish to remain at home for as long as possible, there are services available to support you. As a My Care Solution client, you can access a range of services that are delivered by professionally trained caregivers:
What is the difference between dementia and Alzheimer's?
Dementia is a term used to describe a set of symptoms caused by brain disorders. It is not one specific disease. It affects one’s ability to think, behave, and perform daily tasks. The person’s brain function has deteriorated to the point where it is interfering with his or her normal social or professional life.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, affecting up to 70% of those living with dementia. The biggest risk factor for having Alzheimer’s disease is increasing age, with three in ten people over 85 having dementia. The other most common types of dementia include vascular dementia, Lewy Body disease and frontotemporal dementia.
We recognise that no two people living with dementia are the same. Everyone experiences their dementia diagnosis differently. Therefore, it is important to find a specialist home care provider that can tailor your care and support to your needs.
Becoming a My Care Solution client is as simple as getting in touch with your local office. A Client Care Coordinator will be paired with you, and your services can commence within 24 hours of contacting us.
