A person with dementia will need more care and support as their condition progresses, and there may come a time when they will need to move into full-time or residential care. This could be because a care home may be able to meet the needs of the person better. However, it is usually the senior’s wish to stay living in their own home as long as possible. Relatives have many options when it comes to care. Instead of dementia care homes, many families have opted to increase the support and assisting at home by turning to Gubbe’s services.
Our care services are intended for seniors diagnosed with dementia, who require extra support for a range of different needs at home and want to retain as much of their independence as possible. With dementia, this could be practical support at home, assistance with personal care, or companionship for emotional support. Our in home elder care services are always tailored to the specific care needs of the elderly in question. If the senior moves to a dementia care home, Gubbe-visits can also be delivered there as it is increasingly important that the same reliable helper continues visiting the elderly.
Over 70% of our customers have some form of a dementia diagnosis and we expertise in planning a care program for people with dementia. After assessing the individual’s and relative’s needs, we move on to choosing the best possible Gubbe helper who visits the elderly regularly. After that, we create a plan the Gubbe-visits so that they support the elderly in the best way possible. Often this includes memory activation activities, going outdoors, going through old photos or simply just being there and listening. In many cases the elderly might have difficulties in remembering the people around them, but they still remember the same friendly Gubbe helper who comes every week or even daily.
