Conditions We Support

Alzheimer's and Dementia Care

Dementia describes a collection of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain. It is not one specific disease.

Dementia affects thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks. Brain function is affected enough to interfere with the person’s normal social or working life.

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive and degenerative disease and is the most common form of dementia. More than half of all diagnosed Alzheimer's patients continue to live in home settings.

Caring an Alzheimer's patient at home brings certain advantages such as keeping the patient in familiar frame of reference, giving the patient freedom to move about in a familiar space, minimising stress which can aggravate the symptoms of Alzheimer's and dementia and being able to continue familiar daily routines and schedules.

However, continuously caring for a person who has developed Alzheimer’s disease, or another form of dementia can take a significant toll on the carer's physical and emotional well-being. If your loved one is affected from dementia, Sensible Care offers professional help with its carers' extensive dementia training and ample expertise.

We are conscious about the progressive nature of dementia and will work with you to create a flexible care and support plan which adopts to the patient's changing needs. Our care team carefully monitors any changes from cognitive abilities to food intake and sensitively create a positive environment. We consciously focus on the activities that the patient is still able to do with an aim to maximise the patient's abilities and maintain their independence and dignity.

Chronic Disease Care

Battling with a chronic disease can create a challenging and sometimes life changing conditions for both the patient and family members. Whether you care for someone who has recently been diagnosed with a chronic condition, adjusting to new challenges as a disease progresses or have been living with it for a long time, a strong support network is essential for wellbeing.

At Sensible Care, we aim to alleviate some of the pressures of family caregiving allowing you to focus on emotional support instead of the details of daily activities. We will work with you, your family and medical team to help provide the care and support you or your loved one needs to remain safe, comfortable and independent.

Parkinson's Care

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative, neurological disease, which can cause a diverse range of symptoms. If you have been living with Parkinson’s disease for some time and adjusting to new challenges as the disease progresses, a strong support network is essential for your wellbeing.

There are effective ways of managing symptoms and enhancing your quality of life. At Sensible Care, our goal is to be a reliable and trusted part of your support network. We will work with you, your family and medical team to provide support related to the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease to assist you to stay comfortably at home and remain independent as long as possible.

Multiple Sclerosis Support

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a progressive auto-immune condition which interferes with the function of the nerves. Multiple Sclerosis can have a significant impact on the lives of family and friends of the patient living with MS. Carers can feel stressed and isolated unless they have support from the community or have access support in the home.

Sensible Care offers MS care services that are tailored to the patient's specific needs. At MS, people experience symptoms differently and the severity of those symptoms can vary a lot.

We put an emphasis on helping with those daily challenges that can sometimes overwhelm the new patients when they are getting used to living with this condition. We also cater for patients and families for whom MS has been a part of their life for a longer time. Sensible Care understands that with MS, care needs change over time and it is important to keep both the body and brain active. Our carers are trained on techniques and strategies to identify and manage the movement and mobility related symptoms as well as cognitive and behavioural symptoms.

Diabetes Care

If you or your loved one is living with diabetes, our diabetes care and support service is designed to offer you assistance that will minimise the negative impact diabetes can have on your physical and mental health.

Sensible Care can help manage diabetes by providing education of what affects blood glucose levels, coordination of a healthy meal plan, development and facilitation of a light exercise schedule, shopping and healthy meal preparation assistance and medication reminders.

Maintaining a healthy diet and taking regular exercises are imperative to your wellbeing and we can help you to manage your diabetes at home – where you are most comfortable.

Palliative (end-of life) Care

For seniors who are nearing the end of their life, the comfort and familiarity of home is their preferred place to spend their final days.  Many families seek end of life help to provide their loved ones the best possible quality of life in their final days. This can be an emotionally and physically difficult time for all involved. At Sensible Care, it is as important to us as it is to you that the care and comfort is provided with the highest level of compassion and dignity.

Sensible Care will be there to support you and your family so that you can focus on spending quality time with your loved one during their final days.
