EveryDay Specialist Health Care Services
Dementia Support Service
We support people living with dementia, their carers and families, on every step of their dementia journey from pre-diagnosis to end of life care.
Our team of dementia specialists provide a comprehensive support service for people with dementia in their homes, in our Wellbeing Centres and in the wider community and care settings. We agree specific care and support plans which are appropriate to each individual’s needs.
Our Admiral Nurses are here to support families caring for someone with dementia from pre-diagnosis through to end-of-life care should they need it. The Admiral Nurse can support families during periods of change in the illness to help them gain the practical skills and ways of coping needed to care for someone with dementia. Our nurses work together with families to provide one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need to live more positively with dementia each and every day.
For those in South Tyneside, our Rapid Response Team can provide emergency care packages at vulnerable times such as after being discharged from hospital (unplanned) and to provide emergency carer relief.
End of life care
Our Admiral Nurses can continue to support families as the person they care for nears the end of their life and also with feelings of loss and bereavement. We appreciate and understand the feelings carers may have at this time and are here to help.
Our highly-trained Home Care team also provide specialist end of life care at home.
How we helped Susan & Peter Ogden:
“Admiral Nurse, Rachel Watson has been a tower of strength in supporting Peter and myself. Rachel has taken time and some considerable effort to get to know us both and to help us in more ways than you can imagine. When Rachel arrived she brought experience, understanding, common sense, humour and time which I appreciated more than words can say.”
