MindforYou provide specialised support from experienced staff at the house and on excursions between 9am - 9pm. We have two different support package options for you to choose between. These are broken down below.
Standard Support Package
Our standard support package is one member of experienced MindforYou support staff for every two couples. Some of the things we support include:
Providing individualised or group activities for you to do together or seperately after breakfast e.g. listening to special songs, going for a walk, doing a jigsaw.
Driving you during the holiday and assisting in and out of vehicles.
Identifying the best access to cafes or excursions.
Prompting and escorting people to the toilet at the accommodation or when we are out on excursions.
Arranging group activities after dinner for you to enjoy together or individually. For example, chat and reminisce round the dinner table, dance, play bingo, watch our slideshow of photos of your holiday
One to One Support
Our one to one support package is having your own dedicated and experienced member of MindforYou support staff. We support all of the above as well as additional stated below:
Additional personalised support for people, e.g one to one activities such as morning walk
Extra support for people or couples with complex needs e.g. pushing wheelchair while on excursions
More independent time for either carer or the person living with dementia e.g. allowing the carer to spend the day by themselves.
Extra Cost: To cover the cost of a dedicated experienced member of staff
