Support someone like Eric
Eric* has always been a strong, independent man. He had a very manual job which in later life, presented him with severe arthritis in his spine and hands. This made doing the simplest of tasks more difficult. He was adamant that he would never step foot in a care home, and reluctantly admitted he could use some help. He needed to find a solution, that meant, he could stay right at home where he wanted to be but still receive the help he needed. A solution that would not take away his independence.
Eric’s* Dementia Friend & Companion, visits daily and spends at least an hour with him, he never stops talking about her! She doesn’t just provide help with mealtimes, and his personal care, they also: -
- Chat about memories, family and how times have changed!
- Listen to a bit of Tom Jones and reminisce about record players & Vinyls.
- Laugh about getting on the wrong bus home!
- Bake cakes that look like biscuits.
- Go shopping and pick meals for the week, sneaking in a few cream cakes.
- Go for days out.
