About our Home Care Service
Our home care service offers dementia specific, person centred care and our trained staff work with clients to ensure that we meet your needs.
Our service assigns a trained dementia care worker to client’s home for a certain number of hours per week. We provide support, activities and practical information to the person with dementia as well as respite from caring for the caregiver.
