Understanding Dementia and Its ImpactSection titled Understanding%20Dementia%20and%20Its%20Impact

What is Dementia?Section titled What%20is%20Dementia%3F

Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a range of progressive neurological disorders. Each disorder impairs cognitive functions, including memory, communication, and reasoning. While dementia mainly affects older people, it is not an inherent part of ageing, and it can have various causes, the most common being Alzheimer's disease. Our dementia care encompasses a deep understanding of the condition's complexities and the tailored support required by those affected.

How Does Dementia Affect Individuals and Families?Section titled How%20Does%20Dementia%20Affect%20Individuals%20and%20Families%3F

Dementia has a significant and often distressing impact on both the individual who is living with the condition and those around them. It can bring about changes in behaviour, personality, and physical abilities, leading to increased dementia support needs. Families may find themselves facing emotional, social, and financial challenges as they adapt to their loved one's condition. Our Live-in care Leicestershire services aim to assist families by providing continuous dementia care, thereby easing the burdens associated with caring for someone with dementia.
