Life is really about moving on.” Once a relationship is over and done, your only hope is to pull yourself together and move on. Of course, this may not happen over night, even the strongest people need time to heal.

Dementia Care Tips – Finding a Care Home For Your Elderly Parent With Dementia

You have reached the conclusion that you simply must find a rest home for your elderly parent. They are suffering from some form of dementia eg Alzheimer’s. They are in need of dementia care. How do you go about choosing an appropriate care home. Here are a few pointers.

Some care homes are registered to provide personal care, which means they will provide help with activities such as washing, dressing and eating. In some homes that are registered to provide personal care, staff will have had specialist training in dementia care. Other homes are registered to provide nursing care, which means they have a qualified nurse on duty 24 hours a day (although the nurse may not be a mental health nurse).

The type of home required will depend on the general health and needs of the individual. Two-thirds of care home residents in the UK (244,000 people) have some form of dementia, so the primary task of the care home sector is to provide dementia care.

Providing excellent care can make a huge difference to the quality of life of a person with dementia. Many care homes already provide a stimulating atmosphere that provides quality of life for people in all stages of dementia, and we should all have much higher expectations of the quality of life that can be experienced by people with dementia in care homes.

Convincing an aging parent to live in a care facility can be a challenge for many reasons, not the least of which is their fear that they won’t see their loved ones anymore. It’s a good idea to look for a care facility in your parent’s locality where they have family and friends who can visit.

Visit a prospective rest home and when you are shown round take note especially of the following criteria.

The amenities
Are they safe and clean? The safety and cleanliness of a care facility is always a good pointer of the quality service your loved one will probably receive there. In addition having safe, clean amenities is the best way to protect your parent from unnecessary illness and injury that their body cannot least afford.

The staff
Check their qualifications. See how they deal with the residents . Do they seem caring and compassionate? Your parent’s well being will be in their hands 24/7. You need to convinced that they are receiving a level of specialized and personalized treatment.

The residents
Are they properly dressed and clean. Do they seem reasonably content (bearing in mind their illness). Are they well supervised or are they left to wander around looking lost.

One of the most common reasons people shy away from care facilities is the perception that the cost is beyond affordable. Granted, it is a significant investment but it is also possible to find a facility within your budget without compromising on the level of care your loved one will receive there.

I hope this article gives you a few useful dementia care tips.
