Dementia Care with Bluebird Care
We offer dementia care services focused on managing symptoms while providing emotional support.
We offer specialist dementia care focused on managing symptoms while providing emotional support. We understand the challenges of living with dementia and aim to address them. To compliment this service we employ Tamsin Hudson our Dementia Care Adviser who can support your loved no matter where you are in the dementia journey.
Dementia can shrink one's world as it progresses, making life outside the home challenging. Our in-home care helps maintain a familiar environment and routines, allowing your loved one to continue enjoying life's important moments.
Transitioning to new routines and environments can be daunting for those with dementia. We emphasize home care over residential care, enabling your loved one to stay in their cherished surroundings. Our specialist dementia care is tailored to your family's unique needs, offering a compassionate and flexible approach. Contact us to learn more about our specialist dementia home care service.
What is Dementia?
Dementia is the term for a range of similar progressive symptoms and conditions that affect the normal functioning of the brain and memory.
The brain is made up of billions of neurons, or nerve cells, that communicate with each other through chemical signals. Dementia causes these neurons to deteriorate, making it harder for the brain to function normally.
The effects it has on the body are often small to start with, then progressively become more intense as the condition continues. The symptoms that someone with dementia experiences will depend on two factors: the disease that is causing dementia and the parts of the brain that are affected.
