Home Instead Senior Care Ascot, Camberley & Wokingham
Home Instead Senior Care are passionate about providing the best quality care for elderly and vulnerable people in their own homes throughout the Ascot, Bracknell & Camberley areas. With visits of at least an hour long and the same Caregiver visiting most of the time, we have the opportunity for our clients and Caregivers to really get to know each other. The most important thing for us is that both clients and Caregivers enjoy the visits.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
Home Instead work with each client to decide what sort of care they would like to receive. For some people a little company is all that's needed and they might like to play cards or go for a walk, whilst others need support with shopping or meals. Everyone is different and our care plans are bespoke to each person's needs.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
People often don't know what kind of support they need and are afraid to ask. People put up with things being done poorly or not being done at all and they are too shy or embarrased to point it out. We check in with our clients after the first few visits and again every 6 months to make sure everything is being done as they want it.
