Care

close

There are a number of ways professional support can enhance your life with dementia. The term ‘Care’ encompasses everything from a few hours of companionship, someone to help with personal care tasks that have become a little difficult to full time care. Care can be delivered in many ways. Sometimes it is enough to have a few ‘gadgets’ around the home which are monitored remotely to make you feel safe. We have grouped ‘care’ into sections. You can search on these links by postcode for providers near your home.
