You can often feel quite isolated and alone when facing different types of dementia, in particular Alzheimer’s. Trying to understand what the future holds and how you can continue making the most of life can seem a constant struggle.

An early symptom of dementia and Alzheimer’s is often a lapse in memory. Whether it’s helping you remember meal times, medication or raising an alarm for an overflowing bath, these can all be monitored to give you the level of support you require. Everyday tasks such as cooking, can become increasingly difficult. Sensors around the home can monitor, the risk of fire, flood or even forgetting to secure the home at night to prevent issues at home before they cause damage or harm. 

Sometimes, all you need is a little reassurance. You can be connected to our 24/7 telecare team based in Kent at the push of a button.
