We have many carers who have specialised experience in this area. We take the time to understand our clients’ individual dementia care needs so we can deliver the highest quality tailored support at home.
At Prestige, we understand that dementia affects each person differently and everyone’s experience with the condition is unique. This means that each person impacted by dementia has unique care needs.
We will assess you or your loved one living with Dementia and then develop an individualised plan of care that meets their needs as well as those of your family.

What is the difference between Dementia & Alzheimer’s?
Dementia describes a collection of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain. It is not one specific disease. Dementia affects thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks.
There are many different forms of dementia and each have its own causes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia accounting for between 60% and 80% of all dementias.
People who suffer from dementia have unique and specific needs and their care and support services need to be individually tailored. No two clients with dementia are the same; dementia affects all clients differently and everyone’s experience with the condition is unique.
