The Good Care Group provide round-the-clock live-in care services for people with Alzheimer’s disease, the most common type of dementia. The quality of our one-on-one care helps people with Alzheimer’s to live a full and rewarding life in the comfort and safety of their own homes. Our unique approach to care for people with Alzheimer’s disease has earned us the highest possible rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as well as more awards from recognised bodies in the care industry than any other home care provider.
The personal approach we take to at-home Alzheimer’s care has been proven to vastly improve the quality of life of our clients, as well as offering great peace of mind for their families.
We operate a person-first view of Alzheimer’s and dementia, developed by Tom Kitwood, which teaches us to see the ‘person with dementia’, not a ‘person with dementia’.
People with Alzheimer’s still have the same emotional needs as any other person, yet feelings are heightened and become increasingly important. For that reason, when caring for people with Alzheimer’s, emotional awareness is key to increasing their sense of wellbeing.
We have adopted the ground breaking SPECAL approach, which works on this premise and has been shown to enable people with Alzheimer’s to stay at home for longer, take less medication and experience greater levels of well being. Families of people who are cared for using this approach experiences lower levels of stress than others.
