Demand for home care on the rise

Demand for home care has risen over recent years, with an increasing number of people choosing to receive care and support in their own homes, so they can stay living independently in familiar surroundings.

Over a million disabled and older people in the UK receive support and care at home, getting help with washing and dressing, taking medication and preparing drinks and meals.

People who are less mobile due to illness, a disability or age can become hidden from society so their home care worker can play a crucial role in keeping them both mentally and physically well.

If your looking for help with home care for a loved one – please call us today.

Vascular Dementia care services in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks area

Vascular dementia is caused by problems in the blood supply to the brain due to damaged or diseased blood vessels, a stroke, or ‘mini strokes’ called transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs).

This deprives the brain cells of the oxygen and nutrients they need to function effectively, which may cause problems with concentration, thinking and carrying out everyday activities.

If these problems get progressively worse, the person may be diagnosed with vascular dementia.

Dementia Red Flag

A study has revealed a warning sign that could identify the condition affecting more than 900,000 people in the UK, reports The Daily Record.

The study suggests that walking slower in old age could be a dementia red flag, with findings published by JAMA Network Open suggesting that brain decline may impede a person’s ability to walk.

The study, carried out by the University of Minnesota examined 17,000 participants aged over 75, monitoring their walking speeds and cognitive function over a seven year period.
