Sometimes caring for someone with dementia requires knowing when to pass the responsibility of day-to-day care to professionals who are trained and experienced in caring for dementia patients. It can be one of the hardest decisions you’re likely to make, but in the long run it’s a decision that is best for everyone involved. The two available options are to look into dementia home care or relocate the person into residential aged care facilities where they have the necessary staff and resources for caring for dementia patients. If you’re creating a shortlist of dementia care homes in Melbourne, be sure to look at the residences that Samkay Health has to offer.
