What is Dementia?

Dementia is a progressive neurological disorder characterised by a decline in cognitive function, memory, and the ability to perform everyday tasks. Common symptoms of dementia include memory loss, difficulty communicating, confusion, disorientation, and changes in mood or behaviour. Dementia can have a profound impact on a person’s ability to function independently and can significantly affect their quality of life. While there is currently no cure for dementia, early diagnosis and appropriate management strategies, including medication, therapy, and support services, can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life for affected individuals.

Specialised Dementia Care & Support

Living with dementia often comes with various physical and cognitive disabilities that require specialised support. Disability support and Supported Independent Living (SIL) play crucial roles in assisting people with dementia by providing tailored care and support to meet their specific needs. These services offer practical assistance and emotional support to help individuals maintain their independence and quality of life as they navigate the challenges associated with dementia. In Supported Independent Living settings, individuals with dementia can receive personalised care plans that address their unique requirements.

Solid Holistic Care is dedicated to providing comprehensive disability support tailored to the unique needs of individuals with dementia. Our services include:

  • Specialist dementia support – this includes personalised care plans, engaging programs, and effective strategies for managing challenging behaviours associated with dementia.
  • Respite care – professional support workers are available to relieve family members from their caring duties, giving them the opportunity to take a well-deserved break.
  • House help – support for tasks like house cleaning, laundry, and general home maintenance, promoting a safe and comfortable living environment.
  • Community access – helping people with dementia stay connected to their social circles and maintain meaningful relationships.
  • Medication management – support to ensure that individuals with dementia take their medications correctly and on schedule.
  • Mental health support – for individuals and families dealing with dementia, counselling services and support groups offer a valuable platform for sharing experiences and coping strategies.

NDIS Funding and Services for Dementia Care

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a critical component of our dementia care services. Solid Holistic Care provides NDIS funding and support that can be tailored to individuals with permanent and significant disabilities, including those caused by dementia. Solid Holistic Care offers a range of NDIS services designed to enhance the lives of our clients.

How To Get Help?

If you or someone you care for has younger onset dementia, NDIS funding or support coordination from a disability support provider could be a great help.

Find out if you’re eligible: If you’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident and you were under 65 when you were diagnosed with dementia, you might be eligible for NDIS support.
