Miranda’s mother Carrie is 72 years old and has been diagnosed with vascular dementia which came as a shock to her family. As the symptoms progressed, Miranda noticed her mother’s confusion, memory lapses, and difficulty performing routine tasks. The role of caregiver fell mainly on Miranda—who is an only child—although she has a busy career in marketing.
At first, Miranda attempted to handle her mother’s care on her own, believing she could balance her professional responsibilities with caregiving. However, it became evident that her mother needed more attention and specialised care as Miranda struggled to cope with her mother’s unpredictable behaviour.
Feeling overwhelmed, Miranda looked to us for advice. We conducted an assessment of Carrie’s condition and developed a bespoke care plan for Carrie. This consultation was a turning point for Miranda.
With the support of one of our dementia specialists, Miranda explored several care options including assisted living facilities and in-home care. Each option had its pros and cons. After discussing them with her family, Miranda decided at-home care would be the best option for her mother. She wanted Carrie to stay in familiar surroundings and the comfort of her own home. Hiring professional caregivers who specialise in dementia care seemed like the most compassionate and practical choice.
Miranda’s journey in finding at-home care for her mother with dementia was emotionally demanding but crucial for ensuring Carrie’s well-being. With our help, Miranda was able to navigate the challenges and find the best care for her mother. The at-home caregivers provided Carrie with the attention and support she needed, allowing Miranda to cherish the moments she spent with her mother.
