Dementia Aware

If you, or a friend or relative, have been diagnosed with dementia, you may be feeling anxious or confused. The term ‘dementia ‘ describes a set of symptoms which include loss of memory, mood changes, and problems with communication and reasoning. 

MKJ Care Services dementia teams receive specialist training supported by Purple Angel to ensure all our Dementia Care Workers have a good understanding of the disease in its various forms and stages. This knowledge is coupled with ongoing skills training to ensure that our clients have access to the cutting-edge techniques which will help them to live safe and active lives. 

Dementia is quite often progressive, therefore the symptoms will gradually get worse. How fast dementia progresses will depend on the individual person and what type of dementia they have. Each person is unique and will experience dementia in their own way. 

We understand that this disease affects not only the person suffering from dementia, but also the family and loved ones. We work closely with the client, the families, local authorities, and health care professionals to develop a personalised care plan that not only considers the care needed but also considers a client's religious, spiritual, or cultural lifestyle. We also take the time to provide regular opportunities for feedback.
