Dorothy’s story – dementia care

Home / Care stories / Dorothy’s story – dementia care

Dorothy is living with dementia. Before arranging care, her family had concerns about someone moving into her home, as initially, they would be a stranger. After meeting their local care specialist to talk about Dorothy’s needs, those concerns lifted. By getting to know about Dorothy, from the food she likes to how dementia affects her day-to-day, we could find a specialist carer who would be a perfect fit.

Dorothy says, “There really is no place like home, and with Magda’s support I am able to keep in touch with all of my friends and neighbours. This really is one of the greatest joys of staying in my own home around people I know.”

Magda is an experienced carer who is focused on making sure Dorothy is happy at home.

Dorothy says, “Having previously spent a brief but unhappy period of time in a care home, I feel very lucky and comfortable. Live-in care means friendship, a sense of security and feeling comfortable in my own home.”
