Why Your Family Member May Need Dementia Care

It’s a Big Responsibility

Although it’s an admirable quality, putting your hand up to be the sole carer for your loved one may put immense pressure on your relationships. It’s not an easy task and it can impact your personal life, professional life and mental wellbeing. If that’s the case, you may want to consider asking for help when it comes to dementia care.

Enhances Quality of Life

At V & C Nursing, we want to make each day a good day. Quality of life for people living with dementia can be improved through participation in pleasant and meaningful activities, social interactions, music, and creative art projects. We ensure our participants are physically active, eat nutritious meals and maintain a relaxed atmosphere.

Improves the Condition

While there is no cure, with the right level of support it is possible to slow the disease down and potentially reduce the impact. Individualised dementia treatment will incorporate coping skills to assist a person with their condition. Memory activities, for example, can be used to improve memory and cognitive performance.

Reduces the Risk of Injury

Dementia patients often suffer from falls and are at higher risk of injury in their own homes. The fully-trained team at V & C Nursing can pinpoint these hazards and arrange the house in a way that reduces risks.
