Lesley’s story: Dementia support and respite care in Worcester

Enhancing life for those with dementia in Worcester

Lesley and her husband Tony’s story are a testament to the importance of attentive, personal care. At Radfield Home Care Worcester, Droitwich & Malvern, we aim to identify the unique needs of every client. In the case of Lesley who lives with dementia, it was essential for her to have a regular routine. Unfortunately, the inconsistent timings of her previous care support visits were not suitable. We stepped in to offer our specialised home care services, focusing on maintaining a sense of regularity to suit Lesley’s needs.

Providing a regular care schedule

At Radfield Home Care, we understand the need for consistency, especially for those living with dementia. We stepped into Lesley’s life and ensured that her care support visits now occur at regular times. This new schedule is far less confusing for Lesley. Our Care Professional, Angela, is often present in these visits to offer personalised care and companionship to Lesley.

Compassionate companionship care at home

Lesley now receives morning visits along with two companionship visits a week. After some time, we found Lesley naturally developing a bond with Angela. Angela truly understands that companionship is more than just providing health care, but rather it is about creating moments of joy in Lesley’s routine.

We also pride ourselves on knowing the interests and hobbies of our clients and supporting them to enjoy those small pleasures, for Lesley, it’s chocolate cakes. We’re constantly coming up with creative ways to engage Lesley’s interests, such as painting her nails or playing old Motown tunes. These small gestures not only help stimulate memory but also bring a sense of normalcy and joy into her life.

The value of respite care in Worcester

For family members like Tony, our respite care has proven to be invaluable, giving him time to run errands, shop or simply rest. He greatly appreciates the respite time Angela’s visits to Lesley provide. When Lesley’s tired, Angela knows just the right time for them to relax and watch Lesley’s favourite movie, “Mama Mia”.
