Blossom Home Care provides the very highest levels of bloomin' good care to individuals who have been diagnosed with dementia, yet are still living in their own home.
The term 'dementia' is used to describe a wide range of progressive neurological disorders, the most common of which are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. Every type of dementia impacts people in unique ways, which is why we never operate a one-size-fits-all approach for those requiring dementia home care.
We also know the immense feelings of stress and worry that having a loved one being diagnosed with dementia brings to the wider family. It’s why our dementia care goes above and beyond just helping the individual in need – we also work tirelessly to relieve the stress it brings family members too.
What makes Blossom Home Care’s dementia care different?
Empathy and sympathy is at the heart of everything we do for dementia care clients and their family. This is a fundamental pillar in our premium dementia home care service, along with:
Working with multidisciplinary teams (MDT)
Our highly trained and experienced carers work extremely closely with the client’s family and multidisciplinary team (MDT) from the first moment we are enlisted to help. This includes but is not limited to:
● Social workers
● Mental health workers
● Other healthcare professionals
Knowing every patient’s care needs are unique to them, this partnership-first approach allows us to carry out precisely the right level of holistic care for the client.
This laser-focused bespoke care plan improves the client’s wellbeing and enables us to keep them safe and comfortable in their own home for as long as possible.
Relieving stress for family members and current carers
Being responsible for a loved one suffering with dementia is incredibly stressful. And even if you’re not the one providing care, simply worrying about whether they’re keeping safe and well is incredibly draining.
To alleviate this, our expert carers will take on as much responsibility as possible. For starters, trusting us to liaise and harmonise with the dementia sufferer’s medical team will take a huge weight off your shoulders.
Freeing family members of this burden saves a lot of strain and potential arguments. You’ll be able to rest easy knowing the affected family member can stay in the place they really love – their home – and receive the quality care they need.
Minimum 50-minute visits
Key to our care provision is our unbreakable commitment that every visit lasts a minimum of 50 minutes – and often much longer.
This gives carers the time to properly interact with clients, having friendly conversations or enjoying activities together, as well as going about their routine duties. In short, it means doing all the things that really matter to them.

A holistic approach to care
We focus on every aspect of clients’ wellbeing when devising their bespoke care plan. No matter what their specific requirements, limitations, hobbies, interests or wishes are, we work tirelessly with them and their family to fully meet their personal needs.
Our life-affirming approach to caring for clients also helps prevent deteriorating health issues, dramatically improving their outlook and overall happiness; a positive mindset brings positive things.

Blossom Home Care app provides complete transparency
It’s understandable that dementia patients are not always able to accurately share what care they are receiving when questioned by family members. That’s where the Blossom Home Care app really comes into its own.
Our industry-leading app features an online feedback system that is continually updated with exactly what care and attention the dementia client is receiving.
Family members are able to check in on this any time day or night, providing peace of mind that their loved one is getting the phenomenal care they deserve.
