Alzheimer's & Dementia Care
Welcome to Caring Personal Assistants
A person with dementia will need more care and support as their condition progresses, A Personal Assistant may be able to meet the needs of the person better. Or, it could be because something changes that then makes it difficult for the person with dementia to deal with routine aspects of their lives.
There is no one-size-fits all formula when it comes to Alzheimer's care. Needs change at different stages of the disease and each family's situation is unique. Deciding on care can be a tough decision and we are there to support yourself all of the way through.
Dementia is a growing challenge. As the population ages and people live for longer, it has become one of the most important health and care issues facing the world. In England it is estimated that around 676,000 people have dementia. In the whole of the UK, the number of people with dementia is estimated at 850,000.
Dementia mainly affects older people, and after the age of 65, the likelihood of developing dementia roughly doubles every five years. However, for some dementia can develop earlier, presenting different issues for the person affected, their carer and their family.
There are around 540,000 carers of people with dementia in England. It is estimated that one in three people will care for a person with dementia in their lifetime.
