Dementia and Memory Loss, We Care

Proveda has helped many hundreds of people (and their families) continue to live fulfilling, and healthy lives following a diagnosis regarding memory loss or dementia.

Our organisation has had the benefit of a longstanding and deep commitment to this important area of health and wellbeing. In fact, helping those experiencing memory loss and dementia has been part of our service offering from the very early days.

Not only do we have a depth of experience in supporting all types of people and families managing life with memory loss, onset and progression, but we are able to offer an extra level of personal care by connecting people through our various community programs.

Our Chatter ‘Cino coffee meet ups are hosted by our dementia specialist who provides advice for carers and people suffering from memory loss. They provide a friendly environment to talk to others facing similar issues. We know that carers need support too, and this is why we have developed casual opportunities for people to meet and chat. Our strong network of volunteers also assists families by providing comforting social support.

If you are concerned about your memory loss, or that of a family member, you can request an assessment by our clinical care team of registered nurses who will assess cognitive health and make suggestions for how to improve a family living environment for a dementia sufferer. Learn more about our clinical care services.

Memory loss and dementia can also be associated with other conditions such as depression and can mean people experience harmful thoughts. If you are having these thoughts, it is important to discuss these with your doctor, who may be able to refer you to one of Proveda’s other programs for support.

What Our Customers Say

What We Do

As with every other service we provide, Proveda will always put you at the centre of everything we do. As skilled practitioners who have experience in supporting people and families prepare and plan for the memory loss of a loved one, Proveda has an exceptional level of practical experience with managing this issue, so everyone in the family is supported and prepared.

Regardless of what stage the memory loss is at, we can assist you by preparing a management plan, with practical steps to support you along the way. We also provide our regular Chatter ‘Cino dementia coffee catch ups and run a range of programs via our Belong Club. We will also keep in touch via telephone and email.

Depending on the circumstances, we work with everyone who wants to be involved in the preparation and planning for what lies ahead. We provide education on the positive steps that can be taken early in the process, to ensure everyone is supported adequately. We understand the importance of having clarity for the important decisions that may come in the future, and we can provide advice on the most appropriate approach. Our program provides practical and ongoing support as memory loss starts to occur and progresses, so that there is a day-to-day local support network.

Where possible, the person who might be starting to experience memory loss will be very involved in the design of the care plan, and everyone impacted will be able to live their life fully, being informed and completely prepared.

Dementia and memory loss can have a significant impact on both the person experiencing it and those who love them, especially as it progresses, but early detection is very valuable. From our experience, we know that by being prepared and putting the necessary steps in place, the impact on loved ones can be lessened and the appropriate supports can be activated.
