The latest research shows one in three of us born in the UK today will go on to develop dementia in our lifetime. At Nyadowa Care, we’re trained to support and assist those who are affected by dementia.
What is Dementia?
Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning, which includes and not limited to: thinking, remembering, and reasoning. Additionally, there are many different causes of dementia, and many different types. People often get confused about the difference between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia and, together with vascular dementia, makes up the majority of cases (www.nhs.uk)
At Nyadowa Care we support people living with Dementia in their own homes. Dementia can be very challenging for loved ones, as they are often unaware of the personality and behavioural changes that they are undergoing. It’s difficult to witness our loved one’s experience symptoms of depression or distressing emotions. However, it’s crucial for our loved one’s to speak to a health professional and get the right diagnosis.
We at Nyadowa Care continue to do what we do best: be there to support not just the individual living with Dementia, but their loved ones too. Should you require respite care to top up on your self-care, you can make an enquiry with us here or call us on 01707659099
In more exciting news, this year my colleagues and I will be fundraising for Alzheimer’s and will be doing the Memory Walk 2022 on 3/9/2022.
