Living with and caring for a partner or friend with dementia can be challenging for both you and them. For example, communication and nutritional needs may alter or hygiene may become an issue. It is common that the onset of dementia brings with it memory or behavioural challenges too.
For those living at home, there is dementia-specific support available through our Home Care program, but as the condition becomes more advanced higher care may be required.
We have dementia-care specific sections of our Residential Care services where residents live well in a happy and supportive care environment. Within these services, qualified care and clinical staff have extensive experience in caring for those with dementia, the needs and associated behaviours of the condition.
Please contact us at Donnelly House to understand what support is available to you.
