Live-in Care for Dementia and Alzheimer’s

You are here

Our Approach

Agincare’s excellent reputation for providing high quality and person-centred services is achieved through not having a ‘one size fits all’ approach to our service provision. Our ethos is to provide a holistic service, which enables you to maintain full control of your care so that it fits around your chosen lifestyle and preferences.

We understand that by providing specialist person-centred dementia care the quality of life for you and your family and friends can be significantly enhanced. Each plan of care is bespoke and tailored to your unique requirements and we undertake reviews of your care plan as and when your needs change. Feedback shows that this approach makes a real difference, especially with helping you retain a good level of independence and your previous hobbies and interests.

This type of illness can bring many challenges to everyone involved and close to you. Our experience within this specialist area ensures that we can continually develop and add to our wide range of services and information sources available. These are all fully utilised along with the provision of our specialist trained care workers.

Although some symptoms are common to many people with dementia, each person’s experience of the illness will be different.

Our care workers are trained to recognise that there may be a greater requirement to focus on a range of practical issues that will increase as your condition progresses. Continuous reassurance and support for you, your family and friends is a vital part of your care provision.

Our Training

All of our care and support workers complete the nationally recognised ‘Common Induction Standards’, which include the basic principles of dementia care. Specific client needs-led training is taught by internal and external trainers and/or healthcare professionals. In addition to this, Agincare has an internal ‘Dementia Care Pathway’ training programme in place. Included are the following topics:

  • Person-centred dementia care
  • Effects on feelings and behaviours
  • Mental capacity and deprivation of liberty safeguards
  • Behaviour that challenge
  • Supporting and working with families and friends

Agincare runs a Dementia Champions programme. These individuals act as leaders of best practice, person-centred dementia care delivery and provide support to all care workers, throughout the organisation.

Our Training Department works closely with our Group Quality Manager, as well as local and national organisations, to continually appraise and enhance our training portfolio.

Live-in Care Case Studies

We could not believe that there was a service that could provide support so quickly. We were so surprised when we were told about it. We usually have to fight to get support, but this was so easy. She (the support worker) has been fantastic and made such a difficult time easier. She is such a hard worker and my Mother (Mrs Hammond) told me that she is wonderful. If she says that, it is high praise indeed.

Mrs H lives at home. She is a poorly lady with long-term health needs and mild confusion and requires assistance in all aspects of daily living. Her primary carer was her husband. Mrs H was also supported by the Portsmouth reablement team attached to the hospital to enable her as far as possible.
