Dove Home Care: Compassionate Live-In Dementia Care

At Dove Home Care, we specialise in providing live-in dementia care that is as unique as the individuals we serve. Recognising the complexities of dementia, our care is rooted in a deep understanding and empathy for each person’s situation, ensuring they receive the support they need in the reassuring environment of their own home.

Our approach to dementia care is centred around creating a personalised care plan tailored to each individual’s needs and preferences. This plan evolves as the requirements of dementia change, ensuring the highest level of care at every stage. The importance of continuity cannot be overstated in dementia care, and we maintain this by assigning consistent caregivers to build strong, trusting relationships with our clients. These caregivers are not only skilled in the practical aspects of daily care but also in offering emotional support, creating a nurturing and secure atmosphere.

The well-being and independence of our clients are at the forefront of our service. We strive to maintain daily routines, offering a sense of normalcy and stability which is crucial for those living with dementia. Our care includes engaging our clients in activities that stimulate memory and cognition, carefully chosen to match each individual’s abilities and interests. Family involvement is an integral part of our service. We ensure that families are kept informed and involved, maintaining transparent and open communication channels.

Safety is a primary concern in dementia care, and our caregivers are trained to create and maintain a safe living environment. This approach minimises risks and ensures the overall well-being of our clients. The benefit of live-in care also means that assistance and support are available around the clock. This 24/7 availability provides families with the peace of mind that their loved ones are in safe hands at all times.

Choosing the right care for a loved one with dementia is a profound decision. At Dove Home Care, our commitment is to deliver professional, empathetic, and respectful care that honours the dignity of each individual and enhances their quality of life. We invite you to contact us to discuss how our live-in dementia care services can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your family.

We have been able, over the years, to become very experienced in all aspects of help and support both for our clients and their families. We can offer a real choice to support and assist people to stay as independent as they possibly can in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.

We have invested in training our carers to recognise and support our clients with the daily challenges of living with dementia. We have had the privilege of supporting our clients, over many years as their dementia progresses. We offer the real and positive option of staying at home rather than the option of going into residential care.

Home Care versus Residential Care

We are often asked the question “when should we think about mum or dad going into a residential care home”. We respond by saying that as long as there is a real benefit to the person involved, which means that they still recognise their environment, their families, friends, carers and enjoy being in their own homes, this in our opinion, is the best option. If however, due to worsening symptoms, when a person does not recognise their loved ones, and becomes increasingly agitated, possibly wandering, especially at night, then the benefit of being at home, can become outweighed by the need for a safer more protective environment in a residential setting. We have over the decades supported many clients, who are all unique individuals and have different care needs and challenges, enabling them to have a high quality of life in their own homes.

Training our staff

We have invested in our care staff’s training, and have held the Investors in People Award since 2002. The assessor at our last inspection after speaking to our staff said that he had never met such a positive workforce. We also held a 4* Excellent Care Quality Commission Award, whilst this rating system was in operation. We have been awarded 97% from our local authority in their last inspection. We have a fully qualified in-house Trainer, Vikki Tunnicliffe who oversees all aspects of our staff training, and we pride ourselves on excellent staff retention.
