When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s, many families opt for at-home caregiving but as the disease progresses, they seek our specialised dementia care facilities. Specialised dementia care homes such as Livewell offer a multitude of advantages that at-home care lacks. Cognitive stimulation is incredibly important for those living with memory loss. Dementia care homes need to offer cognitive stimulating activities tailored to the patient’s individual needs. Factors such as healthcare, medicine management, security and nutrition are also very important. Sometimes people with dementia eat too little or eat too much. All of these need to be factored into consideration when families make the decision to move their loved ones into a dementia care home.
