Dementia Care

Dementia Care is a special priority for us at Focus Care Solutions. Our innovative Dementia Care at Home Program focuses on the strengths, needs and potential of every person we care for. We support the person living with dementia and their environment so that they can engage with, and enjoy life at home. 

Dementia Care at Home 

At Focus Care Solutions we work with dementia care experts, researching and employing innovative evidence-based techniques and strategies from around the world to help our clients with dementia maintain supported independence and live life as fully as possible.  All Focus Care Solutions staff undertake specialist training to ensure each and every one of our people understand the specific wants and needs of people living with dementia.

Dementia is a progressive condition that affects over 340,000 Australians. Most people with dementia live at home in their community. With the right support, people living with dementia can continue to enjoy life at home for longer, remain active and be engaged members of their community.

We work closely with Montessori Ageing Support Services (MASS), the national peak body for supporting quality of life for older Australians through the Montessori approach. The Montessori approach promotes independence, self-esteem, choice and meaningful activity through the recognition of individual strengths, needs, interests and the establishment of expertly prepared environments. The experts at MASS work with us to train our staff and develop programs tailored to individual care in the home environment.

Dementia Care – Your Life. Your Home. Your Care. Our Focus.

We believe in placing the person living with dementia at the centre of everything we do.  As such, we consult closely with people living with dementia to understand their needs and wants so that we can provide the best possible support. In developing our Dementia Care approach we consulted with a range of people living with dementia, who gave generously of their time to tell us about their experiences and help us understand what a good quality of life means to them.

We are very fortunate to have Kate Swaffer, the inspirational dementia advocate, work with us and contribute directly to the development of our dementia care approach. Kate’s expertise provided valuable insight into what it is like to live with dementia, and showed us that in order to provide support, we must get to know the person living with dementia and focus on their strengths and potential so that they can live life as fully as possible. Kate’s website is a must-read for people living with dementia, their loved ones and all who want to ensure that people with dementia are treated with respect and dignity. The global group Kate founded, Dementia Alliance International, the international peak body for people living with dementia, provides advocacy, support, education and a unified voice for improved quality of life.
