Suppliers of dementia care products
The attached document provides the details of some suppliers that have a range of dementia care products to assist and support someone living with dementia. There is a huge range of products available today such as home safety devices, or games and activities, memory and orientation aids.
Suppliers of personal alarms and telecare providers
Many people who live alone or who are alone for long periods choose to have an alarm system so that they can summon assistance should they require it. There is a large choice of systems available, ranging from simple pull-cord alarms which activate a flashing light or bell outside the home through to auto dialler alarms which dial, via a telephone, through to present numbers, to telecare systems which monitor and connect directly to a 24-hour monitoring station. If you need an alarm that calls through to a monitoring station, please find attached a list of companies that provide this service.
Suppliers of adapted clothing
The list attached below are just some of the suppliers of adapted clothing for people with dementia. Adapted clothing is designed to make dressing and undressing easier. A garment may have a back opening, a side zip, easy to pull tags, soft pop fasteners, or use Velcro or elastic to replace standard buttons and zips. Sleeves and trouser legs can be wider so they are easier to slip on and off, or accommodate continence wear if necessary. Alternatively, existing clothing may be adapted to be easier to get into and get out of. A good tailor or dressmaker can advise on what adaptations or alterations they can do to help.
Suppliers of continence products
There are a range of continence aids and professional support available to carers of people living with dementia. Continence aids can help to keep the person comfortable and protect clothing, furniture and bedding. Listed in the below document are just some of the suppliers of continence products.
