At Bedfordshire Supported Housing we provide individual home care packages for dementia sufferers from initial diagnosis, through to its advanced stages. In our experience, there’s no doubt that living in familiar surroundings, and maintaining independence, helps to slow down the progress of dementia symptoms. Our focus as professional carers is always on respecting the wishes of our clients. If they express a desire to stay in their home whilst coping with dementia, we find ways to make that happen safely. Often BSH carers work collaboratively with family members to create a low risk environment that helps our client to maintain their independence, and daily routines. In this blog we share 6 suggestions for ways to create a dementia friendly home.
