“Don’t dismiss Dementia!”- urges Preston Home Care Provider

Local homecare services provider in Preston, Lancashire, champions Dementia Awareness Week through on- going support for people in need
By: Ktg Social Care
 
PRESTON, U.K. - June 17, 2013 - PRLog -- There are 800,000 adults – some aged as young as 40 – living with dementia, but fewer than half of those have been diagnosed. Figures provided by The Alzheimer's Society, also claim over 80 per cent of people in care homes have dementia. For many of us dementia is an unspoken disease, too daunting to confront or too easy to dismiss yet it has been identified as one of the main causes of disability in later life ahead of cancer, cardiovascular disease and strokes.

This year Dementia Awareness Week 2013 is all about conversation and getting everyone to speak out about Dementia with the focus on talking to one another. Launched by Gavin & Stacey star Ruth Jones actors, celebrities and MPs alike are speaking out about dementia, and urging people across the UK to do the same

“We fully identify with and back this awareness week” commented Godwin Anthony, MD of Ktg Social Care in Preston, “providing homecare services for those with dementia, not only requires comprehensive training of our staff, but also great communication and compassionate, personalised support”

Ktg Social Care was born out of the Ktg Recruitment business which had been running for many years in the Preston & Lancashire areas. As demand for quality Home Care staff rose the company decided to develop and expand a ‘specialist’ division to include dementia care which involves training suitably skilled staff in areas such as the ‘Mental Capacity Act’, ‘Dementia Awareness’, and ‘Deprivation of Liberty (DOLS)’

“The Care Quality Commission has called for "better identification of dementia and comprehensive training for staff" added Godwin “and we have fully complied to offer the best home care services for those with Dementia through *Lancashire County Council, Barchester and Bupa care homes in the area, as well as people with individual care budgets”

As more and more is becoming known about the impact of dementia, the needs of the rising number of people with dementia, and the pressures on the health and social care system, which are involved….home care services such as those provided by companies such as Ktg Social Care are in demand
