Family carers

Dignity in Dementia provides a range of initiatives that support family carers.  Whilst we seek funding for our community work, we also offer personalised tailored support to families at competitive rates.

We believe that our personalised services can help people with dementia stay at home for longer.

Personalised Family Information Programme that includes strategies to reduce unusual or troubling behaviours

(click here to download our flyer)

We’ll visit to meet the person with dementia and one or more family members, to learn as much as we can about your relative’s life history and the behaviours that you’re struggling with.  Using our Emotional Trigger Assessment processes we’ll seek to find out what’s causing them to behave as they are, and offer ideas to reduce the frequency of the behaviours you’re concerned about. The ideas will be incorporated into our 3 hour personalised Family Information session, which we’ll deliver in a home of your choice within Cumbria or North Lancs to up to 6 family members.  The session will help you to understand your family members dementia and how you can provide care that enhances their wellbeing and helps them to feel content and secure.  We anticipate that it will also help reduce the stress of those providing care.

Following the session we’ll then provide 4 follow-up telephone/facetime/skype calls with a family representative.  These will enable you to ask questions and gain additional support from us.

Cost £380

 A travel charge will need to be added for work outside of South Lakes & North Lancs – please discuss with us.

Further Support available at £35 per hour.
