Safety in the home

We know that it is important for people to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. It is the place where they feel the most comfortable. Moving people into full-time care, which usually means parting them from their loved ones, can be detrimental to their happiness and well-being. Good home care can be achieved through more community home care support, a good care package and by making the home as 'dementia-friendly' as possible.

People caring for someone with dementia can make simple adaptations to their home in order to make the surroundings less confusing, thus 'enabling' rather than 'disabling' the person to move around freely in a safe environment.
