Practical and emotional support for individuals and their loved ones

Living with dementia isn’t easy as the condition affects daily life in numerous ways and carers often feel uncertain about the future and further demise of loved ones.

One way to ease the complexities is to support sufferers with the appropriate level of care so that they can maintain their independence for as long as possible.

Appropriate advice when you need it

Awareness of dementia has increased over the past few years as people and organisations openly and positively talk more about the condition and its various stages

Despite this, stigma and social isolation can still cause obstacles in obtaining information and readily available support.

I’m Worried About Mum provides impartial advice, and practical and emotional support when you need it while I work in partnership with you to help keep your loved one safe and cared for in the most appropriate way.

Gain the right care in the home or at a home

Help to maintain a level of autonomy

By providing support in finding the right care agency, private carer or live-in help, your loved one can stay as independent as possible with the proper support in place so that you can get on with your own life, feel calmer and in control of the situation.

• Help with washing, cooking and cleaning
• Advice for modifications around the home and care aids
• Assistance with trades and utilities

Developing a contingency plan for the future or finding suitable care home provision and respite will ensure you are able to plan ahead to avoid a crisis as the stages of dementia progress.

Gaining access to social activities for your loved one will help them to maintain their friendships and interests and keep them active and positive for many more years to come.

“Received some wonderful advice from Sally last week regarding both my parents who have dementia. She was great to talk to and provided a plethora of useful tips, which she then followed up with by email. Made me feel so much better just being able to talk to someone who understands. Thank you. I would highly recommend Sally’s services.”
