Dementia causes physical changes to the brain and can alter a person’s ability to think straight and perform everyday tasks. So when it comes to the care and management of dementia, it is important to have the right support in place to keep the person safe and healthy.
Caring for someone with dementia can be an extremely challenging time. But as a family member, we know you’re there offering unconditional love, care and support to your loved one from the very beginning, no matter how difficult it gets.
In Australia, over 90% of people want to continue living in the comfort of their own home as they age. It has always been our mission at Home Instead Senior Care to support older people with living independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
Most people imagine end of life care can only be accessed in a care home, hospital or hospice. However, with proper planning, you can receive palliative care at home surrounded by the comfort of your family, close friends and most loved possessions.
As we age, it becomes all too easy to let our exercise go. We lose the physical prowess we had when we were younger so it becomes more challenging to move the way we used to – so many people end up moving less and less.
