Flexicare at Home prides itself in being Dementia Care specialists. All our specially selected staff are trained in our unique dementia training programme. On-going support is provided by managers with a psychology background, Gill Smith and Ann Whaley, and our registered nurse trainer Sarah Brudenell.
Dementia is a cruel illness, which often greatly affects the family as well as the person with dementia. That is why our dementia care service takes into consideration the needs of the person with dem entia and those of the supporting family.
In many, many situations a person with dementia feels less confused and more comfortable in their own home. Our care service therefore focuses on helping them to stay safe and happy at home, and easing the care burden of family members.
In our experience, we have found that after a few weeks of our care and support the emotional well-being of the person with dementia and their family greatly improves. This is often to the extent that the dementia does not appear to be as pronounced.
As with all our care provision, we ensure you have a small dedicated team that you become familiar with. Our care visits are a minimum of 30 minutes. We can also provide support for sleepovers, short respite breaks at home and live-in (22 or 24 hour) care.

Our dementia care focuses on the emotional well-being alongside the practical tasks. This helps you to feel reassured and safe in your own home, and provides peace of mind to your loved ones. Where re quired, we work alongside dedicated dementia organisations (e.g. Alzheimer’s Society and Admiral Nurses) and healthcare professionals to develop a holistic care plan aimed at enabling you to have a happy and good quality of life.
