Care Provider Right at Home accompanied one of their clients with Vascular Dementia to Memory Lane Cafe during November.
As well as visiting people in their own homes, Right at Home Calderdale’s Care Givers take clients on trips out and on 21st November accompanied a lady called Pat to the very popular Memory Lane Café in Halifax.
Memory Lane Café run fortnightly meetings at The Maurice Jagger Centre and at St. Paul’s Methodist Church in Sowerby Bridge for people affected by dementia, other memory problems and also isolation. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming with music, games, information, support and most importantly cake!
Gemma from Right at Home said: “Pat is very sociable and loves spending time with people, Monday was no exception and she’ll definitely be going again. Pat has vascular dementia and hasn’t been going out as much as she used to. It’s critical for her that she continues to get the social stimulation she needs. Places like memory lane are the ideal place for Pat, providing safe social settings.”
Right at Home Calderdale understand the difficulties associated with living with dementia. More importantly, they can support family members to remain living independently in the comfort of their own home.
Gemma continued: “Our trusted team of Care Givers help to maintain a safe home environment for all clients. We’ll also advise on any adaptations that will make life easier. We work with Clients and their loved ones to provide:
- emotional support
- respite care, to allow family carers to take a break
- access to local services
- personal care and complex care
- a personalised care package to anticipate and meet changing needs.”
