Dementia care at home
Dementia is a progressive condition that can affect thinking, understanding, decision making, expression, behaviour and the ability to carry out everyday activities due to diminishing cognitive ability.
Dementia care is best when a team-based, interdisciplinary approach is taken and overseen by an expert care manager.
The team may include a number of different health care professionals, support workers, community supports, family and friends and can be managed by the care manager, giving everyone peace of mind knowing nothing has been overlooked.

You’re unique and so should be your home care
Choose the supports you want when you want them. CarePilot’s providers are health professionals you can trust. They have been selected only after careful consideration and deliver the best supports possible in the familiar comfort of your home.
A doctor’s referral for dementia care is not needed, although the support of your doctor will help in maintaining an independent lifestyle on your terms.
Costs can vary depending on the supports that are needed. Medicare and private insurance may cover some care options and there may be government subsidised programs for which you are eligible that can help offset costs. Speak to our Client Services to learn more.
