24 Hour Support Living

What is 24 Hour Support Living

Dementia is a name given to a set of illnesses that affect the brain. There are over 100 forms of Dementia, the most well-known of which is Alzheimer’s – which is sadly being diagnosed much more often in the UK.

The symptoms of Dementia begin by affecting a person’s memory, be it forgetting names, where they have been or what they are planning on doing, this forgetfulness understandably leads to the individual becoming confused and understandably frustrated.

Approximately 750,000 people in the UK have Dementia. It is an illness that doesn’t just affect the person, but also their family and friends.

Benefits of 24 Hour Support Living

Personal Relationship

24 support living at home offers the benefits of being able to build a personal relationship with the carers looking after your relative. This type of elderly care offers real flexibility, as the needs and wants of the care recipient will always be the highest priority.

Familiar Surrounding

Providing the means for an older person to remain in the familiar surroundings of their much-loved property impacts all aspects of their life, particularly mental health, and well-being.

Overcoming the challenges of getting old

Getting older is inevitable, but if the challenges that age brings can be managed sensitively, it is possible to lead a fulfilling life, while retaining a sense of independence.

Quality & Assurance Care

Are there security checks for carers? – Private in-home care agencies complete Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) checks for all carers. Further, at First Divine Care(FDC) Personnel, it is standard procedure to follow up with each carers’ references. This is done to ensure that references check out and to inquire about the quality of care delivered by a carer and whether it is up to the FDC standard – above par care that is delivered with compassion.
