Living With DementiaAchieving The Best Quality of Life
Dementia is a "progressive decline in a person's cognitive function". As Australia's population ages, an increasing number of individuals and families are affected by dementia.
If you or someone you love is affected by dementia, seek help early. There are a variety of things you can do to prepare and improve your quality of life during this period. Maintain good health, manage memory loss with notes, prompts and reminders, establish a routine, take your time, and ask for help. A recent newsletter article about dementia offers additional tips and advice. Contact us to discuss your situation for more practical advice and support.
Respite for CarersCaring for the People You Love
Carers are the unsung heroes of our community. They devote their time, resources and care to someone they love, often at tremendous personal sacrifice.
Caring can be both rewarding and challenging. To sustain your ability to care for the person you love it is important to take a break and periodically have some time to maintain your relationships, care for your basic needs, and do some of the things you enjoy. Well-planned respite can reinvigorate you and be a positive experience for the person you love. Talk to us about how KinCare can tailor respite services to your circumstances.
