Local families were interested to learn about Carefound Home Care’s home care and dementia careservice in Ripon and also how they can better support elderly friends and relatives at home. People were particularly keen to discuss the specialist dementia care techniques used by the team and what they themselves can do to be better prepared to help people they know experiencing the condition.

It is extremely important that people are both informed and prepared when considering how best to help elderly people at home and this is even more the case with more complex conditions such as dementia.
