I am offering my services as a companion to older people with dementia/Alzheimer’s as well as those who may be coming increasingly isolated during these times.
I am a local professional musician (accordion and piano) but was previously a carer to both of my parents who suffered with Alzheimer’s as they aged, hence I know first-hand the challenges that this can bring. Music and companionship were a combination that really helped during this period and it is well documented that music really helps with mood and maintaining speech and language. I decided to set up Creative Care to offer a service to other people who could benefit from this combination of care.
Over the years I have also played in many care homes for entertainment/sing-a -longs and I feel have a lot of empathy and patience for older people and get huge satisfaction from helping them. I feel it’s very important to get to know the person and tailor the care to their needs. For example, my mother was particularly active and anxious so needed activities and small tasks to keep her happy.
Equally if someone is just happy to chat or there are household tasks to do I can if it’s just a chat do that too.
