Live-in and visiting dementia care services in your home

Specialist support at home, from trained dementia care workers

At Abbots Care, our professional care workers are expertly trained to help people living with dementia lead fulfilling and rewarding lives. Our Hertfordshire based CQC Outstanding rated care workers are specialists in home care for dementia, committed to providing exceptional, person-centred care and support.

Everyone is different, and people are affected by dementia in different ways. So we will always listen to you to understand your own unique needs. Every dementia care plan is carefully designed to reflect the needs and wishes of the individual.

We dedicate ourselves to providing a standard of home care for dementia that we would expect for their own families. We offer specialist live-in care, visiting care and overnight care for people with dementia.

Our approach to home care for dementia

At Abbots Care, we understand that every person is different, so we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. We’ll always tailor our care plan to the individual person with dementia and their needs.

As experts in the field of home care for dementia, we also understand that circumstances can change over time. We make it easy to adapt your care to your current situation; whatever that might be at a given time.

Consistency is important in dementia care. We work to match you or your loved one with a regular care worker, so that as much as possible they can expect a familiar, friendly face. 

Exercise and outdoor activities

At Abbots Care, we are convinced of the benefits of outdoor activity and fresh air for people with dementia. That’s why we always endeavour to implement these activities into our dementia home care packages.

Simple outdoor activities offered by our specialist dementia care workers include walks in nature, outdoor picnics and just going out for short periods of time. We’ll work with you to put together the best care plan to incorporate outdoor activities and exercise.

Why choose home care for dementia?

Studies have shown that people respond better to dementia care in the comfort of their own home. People who receive home care for dementia typically show lower levels of the stress, anxiety and depression that are associated with the condition.

Here are some reasons why home care can be the right type of support for people with dementia:

Familiarity. People with dementia often feel most comfortable and secure in their own homes. Home care for dementia allows them to remain in their familiar surroundings, maintaining a sense of safety and reassurance surrounded by their belongings and loved ones.

Independence. Home care can help people with dementia maintain their independence as much as possible. Care workers can provide assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating, while supporting the person with dementia to make their own decisions and live life as they choose.

Flexibility. Home care can be tailored to meet the individual needs of the person with dementia. Care workers can provide care for as many or as few hours as needed, and this can change over time as required.

Why choose Abbots Care?

Our dementia care service is ideal for those who could benefit from some one-on-one time with a carer, but do not require around the clock care. We can provide assistance with medical conditions and post operative care for as long as you need us, and we also offer specialist care services for more complex healthcare conditions.



We come to you, providing assistance in the comfort and familiarity of your own home.
