Taking care of the elderly on Bonfire Night

With Halloween over with we are fast approaching Bonfire Night. With many of us attending local firework displays and bonfire parties with our loved ones, there will be many vulnerable people who will be scared and confused. The weekend as a whole could be very confusing causing heightened anxiety for those who have Dementia, especially […]

Halloween and the elderly

It’s Halloween this week and although it is fun for you and your children to get dressed up in a Halloween costume and go trick or treating door to door, this can be distressing for the frail and elderly. Remember that an unexpected knock on the door, especially now the clocks have now gone back, […]

A case for dignity in care

Visitors to the Clarity Care Consulting offices regularly ask why we have a suitcase sitting in the corner of our office, often joking if one of the team has just moved out of their home. In many ways they are not as far off the truth as they realise. We are often asked to help […]

Grandad’s Rose

Just recently I’ve been reminded how powerful nature can be and how plants evoke memories about our elderly relatives. These can be as powerful for some as music can be for evoking memories for others. For many days throughout the summer I found myself checking out the rose in my front garden in Waterlooville.

Help to the end – how we helped a client with changing care needs

Three years ago, we were contacted by a firm of solicitors who asked us for help with an elderly client of theirs.

Dementia Diagnosis

For many people receiving a Dementia diagnosis it can be a terrifying time for all involved, especially for the person receiving the diagnosis. Unfortunately, there is still the ‘stigma’ surrounding this awful disease and many people do not know who turn to. […]

Reflections at a funeral

Reflections at a funeral One of the sad things about the work we do helping find care for the elderly, is that inevitably some of our clients pass away. In recent weeks, I have attended funeral services for two clients and family have been kind enough to invite me both to the service and to […]

Merry Christmas from Clarity Care Consulting

The Christmas and New Year holidays are fast approaching and my team and I wanted to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Spare a thought for carers at Christmas Care doesn’t stop just because it is Christmas though. Residential care and nursing homes are 24×7 operations and domiciliary and home […]

Hospital discharges – managing the pressure to find care

Pressures on NHS hospital services The NHS has been under tremendous pressure with the delivery of services throughout 2016 and this is most visible within our major hospitals. Our local hospital, The Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, has been full (often called being on black alert) on numerous occasions and was recently featured in a […]

Happy Birthday to Us.
