At Bellevie, we’re not just in the business of providing care; we’re in the business of building connections, creating bonds, and making our communities stronger one smiling face at a time. Our secret? We’re not just any care provider; we’re your neighbours, friends, and fellow community members.
Growing older is something that should be celebrated. But as our ageing population increases, it’s vital that everyone in our communities is supported to live life to the fullest. We should be striving to support older people to thrive at home, not just survive.
If you or someone you know is living with dementia, it’s no secret that the journey can be a challenging and emotional one. It can be tough to watch your loved one struggle with memory loss, confusion, and a host of other symptoms.
Whether you like keeping up to date on the latest news and weather reports, or simply want some background noise, many of us enjoy having the radio on at home. But how much attention do you pay to the music? And when was the last time you went a step further and listened to your favourite album, sang a song, or danced along to a track from yesteryear?
It has been a bustling month at Bellevie as we actively supported Dementia Action Week to raise funds for dementia research. We organised two fantastic events, one in Northumberland and another in Oxford, brimming with music, tea, cake, and exciting prizes. Our fantastic community connectors, Susan and Fraser, did an amazing job organising these events. They not only helped raise money, but also added a lot of fun and excitement to the day for everyone who came. Their efforts were truly outstanding and made the event a memorable and enjoyable experience for all.
Social care is a crucial part of our society that provides much-needed support to people who need assistance with their daily lives. It takes a special kind of person to work in social care, as it requires a lot of compassion, patience, and commitment to create a supportive and nurturing environment. As we get older, it’s normal to need more help, and it’s important that we don’t hold any stereotypes or incorrect assumptions about people based on their age – after all, it’s a natural part of life.
Home care means different things to different people, but broadly speaking it’s the kind of care that can help you live as independently as possible in the home you love. The kind of care that BelleVie offers is suitable for adults of all ages. It can be a short-term arrangement – to help you get by while you’re recovering from an operation for instance – or it can be something more long-lasting, provided as often as needed on a regular basis.
