Welcome to Hope for Home. We aim to help elderly people with dementia and/or advanced Parkinson’s and their carers who are looking after their loved ones in their own homes.
So, you suddenly find yourself looking after someone at home who has a diagnosis of dementia.
You are absolutely determined to keep your loved one at home if at all possible, but you face an unknown future, with an unpredictable way forward.
- What can you do if you need help?
- Who can you speak to?
- What services are available in your area?
- What options are open to you?
- How can you ensure that your loved one gets the best care possible?
Hope for Home aims to help people just like you, who want to try to care for their loved ones at home. The charity is run by people who have experienced this situation themselves and want to help others who find themselves in a similar position.
The root of our vision is the acknowledgement that every individual has unique needs, wishes and an interpretation of the world. Each individual has the right to have this uniqueness recognised and to be treated with dignity and respect at all times. People with dementia and/or advanced Parkinson’s Disease often have this right ignored and they and their carers are given little or no option about treatment choices or about how, or where they wish to be cared for. Hope for Home passionately defends and supports the right of such people to be cared for and remain in their own homes.
