Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe various conditions affecting the brain. We recognise that dementia affects very many elderly people in varying degrees.
It is hugely beneficial for any sufferer of dementia to stay in their own home, where familiar surroundings can offer comfort. OxleyCare has vast experience in caring for dementia patients, and can take over the running of the household to the required degree, and keep existing routines in place. OxleyCare has introduced a Dementia Champion (Care Manager, Jane Wilson) in recognition of the fact that dementia affects many elderly people. Jane has a personal interest in this area, is a qualified nurse and has been trained, certified and awarded by the UKHCA’s Train the Trainer Training for home care providers.
