dementia

The care we provide is flexible and allows people to live in their own home for as long as possible or to give their carers a break. It may be a few hours a week or support every day and night.

Our working ethos is that people should live well with dementia. We use person centred approaches which ensure that the service is tailored around the person, as well as their family and carers.

Our staff are specialised and fully trained to provide both practical and emotional support to people and their families. Examples of our support includes

  • maintaining skills in the early stages

  • personal care

  • providing information

  • encouraging people to continue going out and maintain interests

  • providing emotional support

  • end of life care

Caring for a loved one with dementia can be both emotional and exhausting. At mirus our aim is to support people to live well with dementia.
