We know the burden, the worries, the confusion, and difficulties that the individual and their family experience when there are diagnoses of dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Where else other than home is best to meet the person’s needs at this time; where daily routines are already established, good memories existed, and an advantage of being surrounded by loved ones which help to reduce the associated stress. At Elmich Care, our aim is to assist our service users to remain in the comfort of their home and age happily. The saying that ‘no place like home’ can never be better said than in a situation like this time for people with dementia and their family and friends.
