Dementia Care

Care_Options_Image3Dementia is the term used to describe the symptoms of a large group of illnesses which cause a progressive decline in a person’s functioning. It is a broad term used to describe a loss of memory, intellect, rationality, social skills and physical functioning. Dementia can happen to anybody, but it is more common after the age of 65.

Dementia can influence a person’s behaviour including wandering, depression, anxious or agitated states, aggression, hallucinations and false ideas, and loss of inhibition. Although these can be upsetting, there are many strategies that may help. The following websites contain information about ‘Caring for someone with dementia’

Caring for someone with dementia can be challenging both physically and emotionally. If you’re caring for someone living with dementia, it’s important to understand that if their behaviour changes, it may not be anyone’s fault. It can be a good idea to talk to a health professional.

People with dementia and their carers deserve the best care, services and information to help them make the most of their lives.
The following survey is designed to find out what you need and how you would prefer to receive the care you need from us as a service provider.

The results will help UPA understand how to achieve our objective for developing an innovative resident/client focussed Dementia Strategy to provide good-quality care and services for the future.

All information will be treated confidentially. If you have any questions about this questionnaire, please call your local care or home care manager.
