Many people living alone with dementia become isolated, depressed and frightened often neglecting daily living tasks and personal appearance. Some people can become a danger to themselves, we have all read the stories of the person falling asleep next to the fire, wandering late at night or leaving on the gas cooker. We believe, people want to carry on living their life to the fullest extent, to have new opportunities and make new friends. We can achieve this, and more, through supporting people to move to a homely environment within the local community, living with just a couple of other people with similar conditions, and receiving professional support. Their life can transform with shared living, quickly finding themselves feeling safe and protected, socialising again, going out, enjoying life to the full with their new friends.
We will help you find suitable accommodation with people living similar health conditions and we have been so successful at this that we are extending this service to create more opportunities for families.
We can then provide experienced, trained and fully qualified employees to support the needs of people living in shared living accommodation. The primary carer will act as ‘extended family’ to the individual supporting their daily living, personal and social requirements in the family setting. They will provide care, friendship and security for the person and peace of mind for their family.
This approach ensures that the person is always at the centre of our activities and Hale Place won a national award in 2014 which recognised and applauded our innovative approach and the fantastic work that is being carried out within our dementia settings.
