What Is Dementia Care?

Dementia care is about supporting older people with dementia. Keeping people safe and secure in their own home in a familiar environment, with the same friendly faces. Making sure they can continue to live a comfortable and fulfilling life, maintaining their independence as much as possible.

Dementia care is especially great for people who don’t want disruption in their lives. There’s no need to move or get used to new places and faces. People with dementia  particularly benefit from homecare and remaining in the familiar surroundings of their own home. Safe, comfortable and well looked after with one-to-one support.

With support from experienced carers, you can rely upon a friendly face to be there for you. You don’t need to compromise your independence.
Unlike in care homes for the elderly, you have one-to-one support from a private home carer focused on helping you enjoy life the way you want.

  • They've all been wonderful looking after my elderly dad. He's much happier now with his carers. It's good that we have the same people coming all the time as he has dementia and the previous homecare agency sent different people all the time, which was confusing for him.
    I can't visit him in Manchester at the moment because of lockdown, but I feel better that he's being well looked after and his carers are so loving. Money well spent.

  • I loved working here. Much better than the agencies I've worked for. I had great flexibility and the pay was good. To be honest, they really look after the carers. Much better than anywhere else I worked. I'll definitely come back to work with them. Also liked that I could do homecare and live in care around all of Greater Manchester and not just one part. I sometimes did extra live in care work for a lovely elderly couple near Stockport on top of my usual home care visits.

  • I can't express how lovely our carer has been for mum. She'd been trapped in hospital for so long we were worried she'd never return home. I've got nothing but praise for everyone who works at Holm Care. Thank you so much. I really recommend anyone looking for private care around the Manchester / Stockport area should try them.

  • Shame I had to move. I've really enjoyed working for Holm. I felt valued and also enjoyed care work once again. It was really rewarding. I hope they start in London.

  • I've used some other big care agencies but didn't like their service. I'm so glad a friend told me about this home care company. They look after my elderly parents and have been great. They're so caring. I really appreciate the care all the carers have given.

  • I've worked for agencies which didn't really care about me. It's so great to work somewhere where they care about the carers. I've been working as a live in carer for an elderly lady in Manchester and it's been great. Pay is really good too.
    I love working for Holm Care

  • We've been using Holm for live in care. I can only say how good the office and care staff are. They have always been very friendly and helpful. The carers are the best we've ever used.

The first signs of dementia are subtle and can often be missed. It’s important to remember that it’s not a natural part of ageing. Memory loss doesn’t necessarily indicate the disease because on its own, it’s a common problem for the elderly.

Symptoms include

  • Memory loss
  • Mood swings and behavioural changes
  • Confusion in familiar surroundings 
  • Problems with communication
  • Difficulty performing everyday tasks
  • Loss of interest in personal hobbies and interests
  • Lack of initiative to start something or go somewhere
  • Unconscious repetition when speaking

The short answer is no, but people with dementia often suffer a range of other health issues which the NHS is able to provide support with. 

You can learn more about Personal Health Budgets and how to apply from our guide to elderly care.
