Dementia Care

“We are delighted with the care that your nurses gave when taking care of my relative”

“We are delighted with the care that your nurses gave when taking care of my relative”

Following a fall and a prolonged hospitalisation period, the client’s family contacted Cavendish Homecare for assistance. The client was living with a diagnosis of both  Parkinson’s disease and Dementia.

Our Client’s Story…

The family expressed concerns about how the client’s overall health had declined, with a marked deterioration in their cognitive abilities. The client had a poor appetite, associated weight loss and a pressure sore that further complicated their mobility. Additionally, confusion and consequent attempts to get out of bed resulted in postural hypotension (dizziness) due to blood pressure drops.

The Cavendish Approach…

The NHS provided the client with a hospital bed and home aids to improve comfort and mobility. Recognising the additional support needed due to the client’s progressing confusion, the family opted for extended daytime care from Cavendish Homecare. The carers provided close supervision, particularly when the client used mobility aids and navigated specific areas of the house. This supervision minimised fall risks associated with the client’s confusion.

Furthermore, the carers strategically coordinated care to allow the client quality time with their spouse. While the couple spent time together, carers took on household chores and errands, ensuring a smoother daily routine for the family.

The Outcome…

Despite prior injuries and ongoing medical conditions, the client showed remarkable progress with the support of Cavendish Homecare. They were able to experience a high quality of life, enjoying time with loved ones. This case exemplifies the importance of person-centered dementia care, which addresses not only medical needs but also personal preferences and the unique challenges of each individual’s diagnosis.

A Godsend during a medical emergency

The team at Cavendish was a Godsend during a medical emergency with my mother. They were always at the end of the phone willing to talk through options and advise us on a situation that was alien to us. The carers that came were amazing and I will forever be grateful. I would 100% recommend and use you again without hesitation.
