Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
We believe the most important part of care, is a positive personal relationship between carer and client. In spite of failing short term memory in dementia cases, we as humans are still social beings that benefit from personal interaction.
Routine and consistency have also been proven to help those affected by the disease which is why we aim to provide the same caregiver every visit where possible.
Our dementia and Alzheimer’s home care services provide sensitive responses to your or your family member’s needs, tailored to suit their personal requirements.

What’s the Difference Between Alzheimer’s and Dementia?
People sometimes confuse Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Dementia is the name given to a group of diseases that cause a decline of the brain’s functionality.
Alzheimer’s disease is used to refer to one specific type of dementia.
Dementia itself is not a disease but refers to the group of symptoms that are associated – these can include the following problems:
- Frequent memory loss
- Slower thinking speed
- Difficulty with problem solving and understanding decisions
- Loss of sense of time and place
- Periods of mental confusion
It is estimated that around 850,000 people are living with dementia in the UK, with a quarter of 70-79 years olds being affected.
We understand it can be a difficult and confusing time for both our client and their family – at Care Confidence, our home caregivers are dedicated to making this time as easy as possible, offering you or your loved one the best quality of life whilst dealing with their symptoms.
