Live-In Dementia Care Services

Providing live-in dementia care within a familiar environment has a positive impact on wellbeing.

What is live-in dementia care?

Live-in dementia care allows those living with dementia to stay in the comfort of their own home whilst receiving specialised care for their needs and condition. This personalised one-to-one support provides freedom for someone with dementia to stay within familiar surroundings and live life how they like. 

It can be difficult knowing that your loved one is struggling to cope with living alone due to dementia and old age. Live-in dementia care is the perfect solution, allowing them to stay in a place they know and love without upheaving their entire life, which can be extremely stressful, especially when someone has dementia.

Why choose Ashridge Home Care for live-in dementia care?

Our carers are fully trained in dementia care, and we encourage the use of many specialist methods and techniques to help keep your loved one content and engaged. We spend a great deal of time getting to know the person in our care – what makes them tick, what their interests are, and how they like things to be.

The Care Managers work closely with you to help us have a clear picture of the history of your loved one, and work out how best to support them with their specific needs. We work to identify what memories or activities will help to calm and reassure the person in our care. For some, it’s enjoying their favourite hobby, for others it’s about a piece of music or the need to spend time in a quiet space.

At Ashridge Home Care, we’ve been rated as Outstanding in Caring by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), showing just how important our clients are to our carers. We take all the necessary steps to ensure that your loved one is happy, healthy and cared for. 

What are the benefits of dementia care at home?

Receiving specialised care within your own home provides plenty of benefits for health, mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. Here are some of the main advantages to live-in dementia care:

  • Familiar surroundings – it can be extremely disruptive and stressful for someone living with dementia to move away from their much-loved home, damaging their wellbeing. By staying at home and receiving care, they’ll be much happier.
  • Safe environment – having close one-to-one care prevents accidents such as falls, making home care a much safer option.
  • Helps retain memories – by staying in the comfort of their own home, people living with dementia are more likely to have improved cognitive function and retain memories of their surroundings, reducing confusion.
  • Companionship – we match you with a carer who suits your needs and personality. This allows you to build close friendships, make memories and reduce loneliness.
  • Maintains routine and independence – having a consistent routine is incredibly important to those with dementia, reducing anxiety. Independence also remains, which boosts wellbeing.

Ashridge Home Carer - Client and Visiting Carer

We are a proud team of “Dementia Champions”

As a dementia care provider, we certainly understand how people with dementia feel often misunderstood, marginalised and isolated. And that means that they’re less likely to be able to live independently in their own communities.

This is why we made sure that everyone, from our office and management teams to our home carers are properly supported and trained when caring for someone living with dementia.

We are proud to provide Free Dementia Friends Information Sessions to our local communities with the goal to improve the understanding of dementia and reduce stigma.

Ashridge Home Care Christmas Support for elderly

Ashridge provided an emergency placement for me when I needed a live-in carer on 24hrs notice. This was a godsend to me as my mother had advanced Alzheimer’s and my Dad had been rushed into hospital. I really appreciated the professional approach from all the staff I dealt with and felt very supported. Ashridge found me a first class carer who was able to provide wonderful live-in care for both my parents allowing them to spend a few more months together in their home of 35 years. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ashridge and live-in care.
