Benefits of Live in Dementia Care

  • Care in the comfort, familiarity and safety of your loved one’s own home. Dementia live-in care offers a calmer environment compared to a noisy care home.

  • Less confusion and disruption as your loved one receives care in the familiar and secure surroundings of their own home. Any daily routines such as meal and bedtimes are maintained, rather than adapted to fit into a standard routine schedule.

  • Happy and precious memories surround and comfort your loved one.

  • Your loved one is more stimulated by living an independent life and this can slow the progression of dementia. Live-in carers can engage in and encourage sensory and physical activities.

  • 1:1 support if your loved one has sleep problems. Carer stimulation in the day can improve their sleep patterns.

  • Socialising is effortless. Your loved one can enjoy activities together with a live-in carer companion such as gardening, playing games, making crafts and watching television. Friends and family can regularly visit easily as normal and the carer takes your loved one to social activities.

  • Assistance with daily tasks including shopping and cooking nutritious meals, ensuring medications are taken when they should be, and ironing and cleaning.

  • Live-in carer keeps a watchful eye on your loved one with less risk of falls. Reassurance for the family who can relax and live their own life.

Cost of Live in Dementia Care

The inclusive weekly cost of dementia live-in care at Mumby’s is tailored to the specific needs of your loved one, following a free no obligation assessment. Comparable to nursing home fees, our live-in care charges are directly for the 1:1 care your loved one needs rather than hotel services.
