How can we help?
Help at Home
At Bridgewater Home Care we offer a range of companionship and home help services, covering all aspects of daily support, helping clients to live comfortably and safely at home.
If a loved one has developed signs of dementia, or has been diagnosed with the condition, it is important to recognise which type of help and support around the home they may need as their behaviours and abilities change.
As dementia progresses, individuals can become more forgetful, change the way they do things around the home, neglect certain aspects of their everyday life (such as personal hygiene) and become less able to communicate with those around them.
We help many of our clients to maintain the upkeep of the home and offer a range of home-help services to enable them to continue living independently at home.
This may include:
Help with everyday tasks –
such as bathing, personal hygiene, dressing and preparing for the day. We can also assist with the night-time routine or undressing, getting into bed and securing the house for the night.
General light housekeeping –
for example hoovering, dusting, mopping, cleaning, taking care of the dishes, laundry for clothes and bedding.
we can help to ensure your loved one is taking the correct medication at the correct times and liaise with local GPs or pharmacies to keep on top of prescriptions.
