The UK has an ageing population and as a result we are seeing a significant rise in the number of people living with memory related issues. Media coverage about dementia issues is increasing – it is perhaps the main health challenge facing society. Many people casually use the term “Alzheimers” but this is in fact the most common and well known memory loss condition – hundreds more exist.
We can help people with memory loss, this could be personal care services such as washing, dressing, bathing and making meals. In relation to memory loss we can keep a person company, take them out and about to places of interest, or provide stimulating activities such as cooking, baking, crosswords, dominos and scrabble.
