Supporting Dementia in Northern Ireland
Praxis Care understands that everyone wants to be as independent as possible and enjoy the best possible quality of life for as long as possible. A key element affecting the quality of life for someone with dementia is the place in which they live. Where people need specialist accommodation we work with them and the families to ensure it is tailored to their individual needs.
Our staff understand the challenges that can surround a dementia diagnosis and know that the illness affects every individual differently. Our dementia services value each individual, recognising their personal preferences and needs, with a focus on providing person-centred care and support.
We aim to:
• Provide quality support to older individuals to help them maintain their independence in the community
• Ensure that the individual’s emotional, social, intellectual, physical and support needs are met
• Promote the principles of choice, respect, dignity, citizenship and confidentiality
• Provide a person-centred approach in support planning and service involvement
• Prevent hospital admissions
Praxis Care’s current provision includes a range of supported accommodation services for those with dementia and less intensive “floating support” which involves daily or weekly visits to people in their own homes.
