NUTRITION AND HYDRATION

Dementia affects more than 850,000 people in the UK with this figure only set to increase. It is estimated that by 2051, over 2 million people will have been diagnosed with a type of Dementia.

We understand that in today’s tight economic times, saving money and using resources wisely is more important than ever. However, the client should carefully consider the risks of hiring a caregiver directly instead of working with a home care agency.
We know that for people and their families considering care options, the financial implications can be a major concern, particularly when there is so much media attention and debate.
“I can’t tell you how Clifton Homecare have changed our family’s life. My 86 year old Mum has vascular dementia and suddenly became night-time incontinent and I was at my wits end travelling every day to change sheets and wash her. Right from the start Margaret and her team gave me confidence with their professional yet very friendly, caring and sincere approach to our situation. All the staff at Clifton Homecare have made me and my brother feel part of their family and have offered us much need advice from all sectors of the system both emotionally and financially. Thank you so much for making a very difficult, alien situation into one we can cope with. Clifton Homecare is a gem caring for local people in our beautiful part of the Fylde.”
