Dementia and Alzheimers Care

Dementia is defined as an acquired decline in memory and thinking due to brain disease that results in significant impairment of personal, social or occupational function. Other brain functions that are affected include orientation, comprehension, calculating ability, learning capacity, language, judgement, reasoning and information processing. Dementia is usually of gradual onset and progressive. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia.

Most dementia care is provided by family carers. Without the support of family and friends, it is difficult for the person with dementia to remain in their own home. Initially that support is largely emotional; in the later stages it is also physical. Caregiving can be both rewarding and stressful, often at the same time.

There comes a time for most family caregivers when it is beyond their capability to continue taking care of their loved ones with dementia. 

Our Caregivers are specially trained to take care of a person with Alzheimer's or dementia in the comfort of their own home, giving family peace of mind that their loved one is still able to live with them and that they are cared for in a professional manner.

Our Caregivers are trained on a regular basis by Jennifer Howorth, director of Alzheimers South Africa - Southern Cape region.
