Alzheimer's Care at Home

We pride ourselves on delivering expert Domicilary (care in-home) care in London for a vast range of needs including Dementia and Alzheimers. Our affordable options can be significantly lower than other providers and care homes without compromising quality.

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurologic disorder. The brain shrinks and brain cells die. Memory and thinking abilities are slowly being destroyed. All of this affects a person’s ability to function independently. 

Memory loss and problems with daily activities can lead to frustration and even anger in a person with Alzheimer’s disease, which can turn into aggression. All of this affects our loved ones as well as those around them. It is very important to reduce this frustration. 

This is where we come in and create a personalised care plan which includes;

Daily routine – We introduce a daily routine to give people with Alzheimer’s a sense of security in the form of familiarity. Thanks to this, we achieve greater peace and self-control in the patient. It is also helpful in situations that deviate from this routine (e.g. family visit, doctor’s office visit), when the sick person is calmer daily, and can bear such situations more easily.

Time – Due to memory loss, some activities are more difficult and may take longer than they used to. We include all this in our daily routine and spend more time on these activities. In this situation, it is not worth rushing, so it is better to change the schedule a bit so as not to cause additional stress.

Reduce distractions – We know perfectly well when distraction is a good thing and when it is a bad thing. Sometimes distraction can be an excellent way to occupy a senior’s mind and push his thoughts aside about the things that are upsetting him. On the other hand, distraction can make our seniors nervous. Better then, turn off the TV, radio, and other things to minimise distraction.

Engagement of the person – We know it is important to involve the client in daily activities and encourage movement even if it is a short walk. This will allow clients to exercise their memory and skills, which will surely bring satisfaction.

Rivendell recognises that a disease or disability does not define you and our personalised care with a human touch reflect that.

We look at each person as a unique individual with a rich history of experiences, abilities, skills, knowledge, preferences, desires and personality. Through our care assessment, we are able to find out information so that we are able to match carers to service users through matching up personalities, interests or cultural requirements.
