Home care for people living with dementia

We’ve been providing reliable, flexible and affordable home care (also known as domiciliary care) for more than 30 years.

We help people with dementia to live independently at home for as long as possible, with a care worker providing personal care and support, as well as helping with tasks like shopping and laundry, or accompanying you to appointments.

What is home care?

Home care can be relatively simple, like helping you get up and about in the morning, making sure you take your medication at the right time, feeding pets or helping you move around the house. Or it could be more complex high-dependency 24-hour homecare.

Our service is flexible and we match the care and the care worker to you. We do an initial assessment of what you need, then plan your care around those needs.

We keep the plan under review – it can change as often as you need it to. We’ll always provide care and support in a way that has been agreed with you..

As well as practical support with personal care or domestic tasks we can support you with social, leisure and recreational activities.

This could be just taking time for a chat or helping you get out and about to appointments, events, the shops or whatever you choose. We will work with you and your family to get it right.

Why choose home care from Agincare?

  • We direct employ, train and manage our extensive network of local care workers

Our home care staff

Many of our care staff are well-known in their local community – they may be a familiar face already. Our care staff become part of your daily life at home. Some of our home care workers have been supporting the same people from more than 20 years – they really feel like part of the family!

All staff have access to dementia-specific training to help them understand the needs of a person living with dementia and develop their knowledge and experience.

We have lots of great stories about our care workers who have gone the extra mile to help the people they’re caring for:

  • At 97, Ron vividly remembers the Second World War and wanted to visit Portland’s D-Day Museum. It’s a trip that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of his care worker
  • Mel’s care worker put together a tour of local places he remembered as a child, as part of his dementia care programme

What does home care cost?

Cheap headline figures can be attractive, but it’s the small print that can hurt. We believe you should know from the outset what you will be paying for home care and that is why, once we have agreed the support you need, we will tell you how much we charge. There are no hidden charges.

You may be eligible for financial support – we can signpost you to information from your local council about a needs assessment.

If you think domiciliary care could help you or a family member live independently at home – either right now, or in the future, call us on 01305 769 418. We’re happy to talk through the options and costs with you.
