PEOPLE living in south Devon who suffer from dementia can be cared for at home thanks to a specialist training scheme being run by a care provider in the area (June 2020).

Dementia sufferers can receive care where they live, rather than having to go into a residential home, with the help of trained carers working for Guardian Homecare in Exeter.

Catherine Porter, Manager for Guardian Homecare said: “We believe supporting people with dementia is extremely important as it enables them to retain their independence and lead fulfilled lives.

“We now train all our social care workers to support dementia sufferers, as we understand how it is important for people to remain in their own homes in familiar surroundings with their loved ones. We are passionate about arming our carers with the best possible skills and our training scheme begins from the moment they are appointed.

“Anyone who is appointed as one of our home care workers can benefit from our training scheme and learn a range of new skills. They will be trained to understand different stages of dementia and the way it affects each person.”

Guardian Homecare operates a professional team of domiciliary carers committed to providing high quality care to individuals in their own homes. 

Its team of trained, specialist, care workers provide positive-based outcomes and person-centred care to people throughout south Devon. 

Catherine added: “Our carers are all equipped with the skills needed to provide kindness and understanding in a professional manner and encourage independence in service users.”

Guardian Homecare delivers personalised home care supporting people wishing to stay living safely and comfortably in their own homes in south Devon.

It says, despite the on-coming recession created by the Coronavirus lockdown when many businesses found they were unable to trade due to essential social distancing restrictions, care offers a chance for people to create a worthwhile career for themselves that has longevity and security. If people are looking for a job for life with training and career advancement opportunities, then it is one of the few sectors that can offer this, says Guardian Homecare.

Catherine continued: “Although we have a team of nearly 200 carers already in Devon, we’re looking currently for more recruits and are keen to hear from people who are honest, committed, reliable and caring."
