Imagine how great it would be to enjoy a holiday, have more time with your family or just some time to relax where you can recharge your batteries, knowing that your loved one is being looked after and cared for as you care for them yourself.
Looking after an elderly relative can be a very rewarding experience, but it also requires a big commitment in time and energy, especially if they are living with dementia. You want to care for them and give back the love and attention they have given you over the years but it can be very hard to do it consistently without a break.
My Mother has been a resident at Northfield House for 6 years, I am always made to feel welcome when I visit. The home has a friendly home from home atmosphere. Mums health has deteriorated due to her Dementia, the staff work hard to make Mum look nice, she is of a Welsh origin, and a memory box has been made to help mum's memory of Wales.
Her room is made very personalised also to help mum feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble for the Staff at Northfield it is just like one big family. I cannot speak highly enough of Northfield, and have often recommended it to others.
