Taking steps to a diagnosis can seem daunting but early diagnosis provides the ability to arrange support to maintain independence for longer; providing time to prioritise what matters most and to make decisions about future personal, financial and legal matters.
How We Can Help
While some people are willing to seek help, we are also skilled to support families where the person with symptoms may be unable to accept that they are experiencing cognitive difficulties. We also understand that some people, even with awareness, may be afraid of having their fear confirmed. We ensure that our caring professionals have the depth of knowledge and experience to build trust and confidence as we provide timely support throughout the diagnosis process.
Our practical support services are designed to make the diagnosis process as smooth as possible. We develop a detailed report, attend appointments, and ask relevant medical questions on behalf of you and your support network. We also ensure that you understand the advice and information healthcare providers offer and coordinate care between doctors and family members. Our team will alleviate confusion, arrange specialist appointments, and liaise with other organisations for additional support or clarify misunderstandings.
Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be stressful, and emotional support is an essential part of our Timely Diagnosis service. Our team monitors our clients’ sense of well-being and tailors care to individual needs. We accompany you to medical appointments to provide invaluable support during complex or distressing situations; we can also arrange referrals for counselling support from external support services. You can rely on our caring and compassionate professionals to support you and your carer, to make sure you can focus on what is most important.
