Dementia Care & Support
Our Staff are trained in making life as consistent as possible for those living with a Dementia diagnoses
We understand the challenges that can present themselves for those affected by Dementia and are here to provide the necessary support to make things a little easier. We provide practical in-home support, and help with personal care if this is needed, whilst loved ones go out for a few hours and have some well-deserved time away. We also provide companionship and support out-with the home environment too. Visits are discussed and planned with Clients and their families in advance to ensure an enriching experience.
How We Tailor Our Dementia Support
Daily or weekly support as you need it
We provide a minimum of two hours support each visit therefore whether you need two or more hours support each day or just two hours support each week we will tailor your support plan to ensure your needs are met.
Our care services create a familiar and calming atmosphere
Continuity and routine are so important for those living with a Dementia diagnoses. We assign the most suitable member of staff to support your loved ones to ensure continuity of support and the reassurance of a familiar face.
Support for your daily needs as well as external activities
With our in-home support we provide companionship, engaging with interests and hobbies. Catching up on current affairs, using memory aids or providing support with preparing a meal to maintain day to day skills we focus on the individual. We also provide support out-with the home such as accompaniment to cafés, attractions and trips to the Cinema.
Many of our staff are qualified and experienced nurses

Our Customer Views
“Trust, understanding, the ability to care sensitively for someone living with dementia, patience and respect’ were some of the priorities when searching for someone as a companion for my Husband – in other words, ‘a friend’. My Husband is excited when his friend visits and I can leave them knowing he is in safe hands and will enjoy the time they spend together.”
Wife of Client

“Flexible Respite did exactly what it says on the tin, gave me and my family respite through a difficult period dealing with our mother who has dementia. The carers were kind and professional at all times often going above and beyond their roles to provide our mother with days out and additional activities. We would like to thank Alison and her team for their dedication and wish Flexible Respite the very best success for the future”
