Christies Care has been supplying dementia care for our clients, allowing them to stay at home, for over a quarter of a century. We give our clients well-trained live in carers (who our clients know and like), who give 24 hour care and support.
With live in dementia care, it means that our client is at home, she stays somewhere she knows and loves, she is being cared for by someone she knows and likes, she still has her dog or cat, and has as little disruption and change as possible.
We know that with dementia care, good training for carers is essential.
Helen Drain, our lead dementia trainer (Alzheimer’s Society approved, and Dementia Friends champion) knows this from personal experience. When caring for her husband she, in her words:
“I got everything wrong and made all the mistakes you can.
I don’t want to see anyone else going through that.”
