Dementia Care At Home
From our highly experienced Case Managers through to our direct care workers, our team is trained in understanding Dementia and the issues surrounding this condition. We have many carers who have specialised experience in dementia support.
We take the time to understand our clients’ individual dementia care needs at home. And we pride ourselves on delivering a high level of tailored care that enhances our clients’ quality of life.
At Prestige, we understand that dementia affects each person differently and everyone’s experience with the condition is unique. This means that people living with dementia have unique care needs.
We will assess you or your loved one living with Dementia and then develop an individualised plan of care. We develop plans that meet their needs as well as those of your family.
With Prestige Inhome Care, you’ll receive aged care at home which is tailored to the requirements of a person living with dementia, as well as your specific needs and lifestyle. You can pay for your care privately. Or if you are eligible for a government-funded home care package, we can set one up to include dementia care.
Dementia Care Services
Our 24 Hour Care Teams have experience in providing the following dementia support services and more:

As part of a tailored care planning approach, we pair our clients with staff who provide companionship. Together, they complete activities that our clients may have previously gotten enjoyment out of.
Behavioural and Psychological symptoms of Dementia
We are able to support clients who may have behavioural & psychological symptoms of dementia. This may include using therapies to support agitation, anxiety or wandering.
Assisting with the safe administration of medication. Working in conjunction with GP to ensure medication is appropriate for health needs.
We can help with a much-needed break or emergency relief for family carers. Overnight care is also available.

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 has 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.
