Dementia care at home

Our trained dementia carers help people living with dementia manage daily life, so they can live well and safely in their own homes for longer. With our support, people living with dementia can delay or even avoid the need to move into residential care. By taking over day-to-day caring responsibilities, we can also reduce the pressure on family and friends – and often improve relationships as a result.

What dementia care can include

Our dementia carers can help with a wide range of tasks and activities.

These include:

  • Morning start and bedtime settling visits
  • Support with washing and dressing
  • Shopping
  • Preparing nourishing meals
  • Cleaning and tidying
  • Trips out
  • Sharing hobbies and activities
  • Talking about memories and family history
  • Encouragement with light exercise

On top of this, you can rely on our carers for emotional support and reassurance whenever you need it.

For more about the services we can include, see social care, personal care and domestic support.

Flexible care options

We can provide whatever arrangements are appropriate, from short visits to check all is well through to overnight stays and full live-in care.  We can also provide respite care, to give regular carers a much-needed break.

Practical ideas

We have plenty of practical ideas that make life easier for people living with dementia. Your carers will find out what tasks you struggle with, and suggest simple but effective techniques and approaches to help you cope better.

Dementia care for yourself

If dementia symptoms are making it hard for you to continue the life you once had, we can help. Our trained carers understand that you will feel frustrated when you cannot carry out day-to-day tasks and when your brain or body refuses to work as it should. They’ll be keen to get to know you as the person you still are behind the symptoms, to provide care on your own terms, and to allow you space when you need it.

Sympathetic support for families

Bringing expertise and compassion to the role, our carers ease the strains families face as dementia symptoms develop. They will liaise closely with family members and other health professionals, sharing knowledge and making sure arrangements evolve to meet changing needs.

Patient approach

Aceso carers are always patient, kind and cheerful. We train team members to spot and manage signs of distress, to handle mood changes, and to use gentle persuasion where needed. They treat every client with respect, helping people make their own choices and keep their sense of identity
"During the period you have looked after my father. The service you have provided has been exceptional and has been of great comfort to my father and family at this difficult time. The care and dedication your whole team has provided has been very thorough and of an exceptionally high standard enabling my father to keep his dignity. Knowing your team will be there for my father as his needs are growing is very reassuring. May we just say a big thank you."

Expert assessment

Before we start to provide care, one of our senior team members will visit you for a full assessment of your needs. They will find out what you need help with, and give expert advice on the best way forward.

Detailed care plan

From the assessment, we will then put together a detailed care plan for carers to use when they come. The plan can include everything from what you enjoy doing to how hot you like your baths and which armchair you like to sit in. We’ll review the plan regularly, and you can ask us to change it at any time.

Consistent care team and routines

To reduce stress and confusion, your care team will stay the same as much as possible. You will know who will be coming each time, and we’ll normally introduce any new carers to you before they come by themselves. We’ll also make sure all your carers know your routine - and that they stick to it.

What dementia care costs

The cost of our dementia care depends on your needs. We will provide expert advice and clear pricing, so you can decide what will work best for you. We can also advise on social care funding.

Arrange a care consultation

The best way to see how our care visits could work for you is to arrange for a free no-obligation care consultation. One of our senior staff members will visit you at a time that is convenient to you and discuss your care and wellbeing needs, and advise on the most suitable options and costs.
