Dementia Home Care Services in Norfolk

Dementia is a damaging and difficult disease that directly effects 24 million people worldwide. Our expert staff are trained to help deal with dementia and the substantial life changes it can bring.

1 in 5 people over the age of 80 will have a type of Dementia, and our experienced and qualified staff deliver some of the best home-based Dementia care services in Norfolk.

We know how devastating the effects of Dementia can be, both to the patient and to their family. At Extra Hands, we understand this more than ever in a world where if no cure is found by 2050, there will be 82 million people suffering with the disease.

Seeing a loved one suffering with Dementia is a scary and difficult situation, and that's why we care so much about dealing with not only the effects of Dementia itself, but the symptoms it can bring.

Our approach with Dementia care is a little different - our expert staff provide a home care service and become a friendly support by helping with aspects of social care to enable the sufferer to continue to explore their hobbies and interests for as long as possible. Additionally, we provide a variety of activities to stimulate and enrich their life, rather than focusing on their Dementia.

In our experience, this approach has been incredibly rewarding and beneficial to the suffererer and their family.
