Alzheimer’s care

Specialist care for people with Alzheimer’s.

Agincare’s specialist Alzheimer’s care services can make a real difference to the quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.

Each person’s experience with Alzheimer’s is unique. We recognise that all people, regardless of their diagnosis or the stage of Alzheimer’s they are at, have their own strengths to call upon, their own capabilities, wishes and their personal experiences.

We want to help people living with Alzheimer’s live as fulfilling a life as possible. We have different ways we can care for you, depending on your needs, situation, symptoms, likes and dislikes. We take everything into account and use our years of experience to work with you and your family to find a solution that’s right for you.

One thing that may be helpful is reminiscence therapy – introduced in this video by Jacqueline Ash, Lansdowne Hill’s activities coordinator.

What is Alzheimer’s?

  • Alzheimer’s disease is the most common (and most well-known) form of dementia. There are more than 520,000 people in the UK living with Alzheimer’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s is named after Alois Alzheimer, the doctor who first described it. It is a disease which affects the brain
