Ashridge Home Carer Heather has been thinking outside the box to make her elderly client from Princes Risborough accept well needed care.
As people age, they may suffer from chronic health conditions and age-related changes that affect their ability to do the things they enjoy. Memory loss can lead to many practical difficulties. It can also have a strong effect on how they and those supporting them feel.
Well done Heather for thinking outside the box and finding a way to encourage her client to accept a visit. We are so privileged to have so many incredible carers who provide the care our clients need every day.
Personal relationships and someone’s social environment are vital to life, regardless of age, physical or mental ability. People can recognise this by being as supportive and caring as possible. Carers, friends and family, can help a person suffering loss of memory to feel valued and included. Support should be sensitive to the person as an individual, and focus on promoting their wellbeing and meeting their needs.
Find out how our hourly care services can make a real difference for those living with memory loss and confusion, helping their quality of life improve drastically compared to other types of care.
