Around the world, there is one new case of dementia every six seconds.

We provide trusted dementia in-home care where your senior loved one are well taken care of.

Families usually engage us for:

  • Personal Hygiene such as showering and toileting
  • Companionship to prevent social isolation
  • Simple Exercises for cognitive training
  • Meal Arrangements such as meal prep and cooking
  • Check-in Visits, day or night
  • Medical Escort for meetings, appointments and events

Approximately 590 000 people are projected to have dementia by 2050 in Malaysia.

Dementia is not a part of normal ageing.

It is a medical condition that causes brain cells to die at a faster rate than normal. The resulting progressive cognitive decline leads to increasing difficulties in coping with everyday activities. A common symptom is poor short-term memory. On average, a person with dementia lives four to eight years after diagnosis, but can live as long as 20 years.

Dementia is not just forgetfulness

The effects of dementia go beyond affecting the ability to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others, and to care for ourselves. Mood swings and even changes to your loved one’s personality and behavior are also part of it. When caring for a person with dementia, irregular behaviours and communication difficulties can make caregiving challenging.

Dementia care across the stages

The symptoms of dementia progress over time and changes across the stages. During this period, dementia can be separated into three categories: mild , moderate and advanced. It may be difficult to place a person with dementia in a specific stage as stages may overlap.

These stages help to provide some insight on the symptoms, how the abilities of our loved one change and possible care support needed.

Mild Stage

Individuals can function independently, with memory or concentration difficulties.

Care support 

  • Medication reminders
  • Staying active
  • Companionship

Moderate Stage

Individuals have greater difficulty performing routine tasks and communicating. Personality and behavioral changes may take place.

Care support

  • Medication reminders
  • Staying active
  • Companionship
  • Personal hygiene and grooming
  • Check-in visits

Advanced Stage

Individuals lose their ability to communicate and eventually, to control movement. Significant personality changes may take place.

Care support

  • Assist with daily living activities (ADLs)
  • Companionship
  • Night caregiving
  • Nursing procedures
