Our dementia home care services
Some with dementia may experience a complete loss of safety awareness both indoors and outdoors, putting themselves at risk of harm when crossing roads or using kitchen appliances, for example. This can be distressing to both the service user and their loved ones, so the offer of dementia care at home is a welcome service to them.
When symptoms such as these are present, the person may need 24-hour care to ensure they are safe at all times. In some cases, they may be protected by a Deprivation of Liberty Order (DoLS), agreed by the Court of Protection, which will prescribe legal measures to ensure their safety but not deprive them of their liberty.
Aster Care is experienced in supporting people with a community DoLS order, ensuring this is used appropriately and will not be to the person’s detriment.
