A change of environment and routine can be disorientating for people living with dementia; this is why we work with clients and their loved ones to produce unique care plans. These cover the support they require to feel confident and live their lives to the full. Our care enables people with dementia to live as normal a life as possible, maintaining a sense of independence and dignity. We help clients with memory assistance – this includes playing memory games that build their cognitive function.
Andrew’s Case Study
When Andrew, a retired scientist, was diagnosed with dementia, his wife struggled to cope. A GoodOaks care manager assessed Andrew and his wife in their own home, and developed a dementia care package for them, which involved daily visits to prepare meals.
The GoodOaks care professionals formed a strong enabling relationship with Andrew and his wife, providing increasing support as their situation evolved. Companionship became a significant element of the care package, with audiobooks being provided for Andrew on topics that interested him. His wife benefitted from having the paper read to her. Both were taken out to shops and to attend appointments.
Over time the package of care increased further, with a live-in care professional providing the increasing support that they required. This meant that the couple, now well into their nineties, were able to retain their independence and remain together where they wanted to be – at home.
“The quality of care provided by GoodOaks has been exemplary. You have been caring and compassionate, always ready to go the extra mile and are now a much valued asset for both my parents and myself.”
– Andrew’s daughter
