Dementia care

Dementia is the name we use to describe a family of conditions that impair brain function. While not exclusively found in older people it is a condition that becomes increasingly common as we age. It is imperative that anyone living with dementia receives appropriate care from a trained, professional and compassionate carer or care team. This will make their life as comfortable and fulfilling as possible, while simultaneously giving their family the peace of mind that comes from knowing their loved one is properly cared for.

Advice and guidance for COVID-19

We are all living through an unprecedented situation, with a global health crisis in the form of COVID-19. Bright Future Care Ltd in London is following all official guidance and will update you here whenever required.

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a coronavirus, a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China in January 2020. The incubation period of COVID-19 is between 2 and 14 days. As such, if a person remains well 14 days after contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus, they have not become a case.
If you are concerned about symptoms, contact NHS 111, but do not visit your GP or any other healthcare environment. If you feel unwell, stay home and do not attend work.

Preventing infection

Regular cleaning of frequently touched hard surfaces and hands will help to reduce the risk of infection. Because there is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus through:

Staying at home and avoiding public places
Self-isolate for 14 days if get any flu symptoms and call 111 if they persist.
Washing your hands often with soap and water - use alcohol sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if hand washing facilities are not available.
Wash hands before leaving home, on arrival at work, after using the toilet, after breaks and sporting activities, before food preparation and eating any food including snacks, before leaving work, on arrival at home.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
Wear gloves, a mask, use hand sanitisers and avoid touching public surfaces
Change into clean clothes and have the ones worn washed as soon as you get home

How COVID-19 is spread

From what we know about other coronaviruses, people can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The virus can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets. That is why it is important to keep a social distance of at least 2 metres (6 feet) from other people.
The best way to avoid minimise the spread of COVID-19 is to stay at home and, if you have to go out, follow social distancing guidelines of staying 2 meters apart at all times.

Signs and symptoms of COVID-19

Dry cough and/or fever
Sore throat
Difficulty in breathing
Aches and pains
Nasal congestion
Loss of smell and taste
These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually.
