We offer a variety of specialist care services across London from housekeeping and companionship to live-in care and night care.
Dementia is a collective term that describes an array of progressive conditions that affect the brain.
Common symptoms include problems with memory, judgement, understanding, thinking and communication. Whilst there are many forms of dementia, the most common are Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Lewy Body dementia and frontotemporal dementia. And, although dementia can affect anyone, it is most common in older adults, particularly those aged over 65.
Whatever your care needs and wherever your loved one is on their care journey, please contact us and let’s talk. We're here to help.
Caring for a loved one with dementia can be challenging especially if you’re trying to balance your caring responsibilities with living your own life.
At Tiggo Care we understand the strain that dementia puts on families. We’ll work with you to assess your loved one’s requirements and create a bespoke care package that enables them to live a fulfilled and happy life. And, with their care needs met, you can get back to spending focused, quality time with them.
Whether you simply need someone to check in on your loved one first thing in the morning and help them with their personal care and breakfast, or you feel they need a live-in carer who can ensure they’re safe during the night, we can help.
Dementia can leave your loved one feeling very isolated and depressed, as they start to forget people and places they once knew and withdraw from day-to-day activities. By supporting your loved one within their home rather than moving them to a care home, not only can they avoid a traumatic separation from their partner but they’ll also be able to stay connected to friends, family and beloved pets, which will have a profound effect on their emotional wellbeing. In addition, we’ll support your loved one to maintain their regular hobbies, get out and about in the fresh air and exercise regularly, which will also have a positive impact on their mental health.
Delivering dementia care in your loved one’s home setting can help to limit their sense of confusion. Recognising the layout of their care setting and living amongst cherished belongings can help to trigger their memories and improve their cognitive function, as well as boost their sense of comfort and security. Immersing themselves in a comfortable daily routine in a setting that they are familiar with, can also help them to maintain their independence.
As dementia progresses, so a patient’s memory deteriorates. As well as forgetting familiar faces, names and places, patients may also forget to undertake routine, everyday tasks. Our dementia carers will remind your loved one to take their medication, eat regular meals, as well as wash and exercise, leaving you with complete peace of mind.

Our Dementia Care is based on personal experience
We understand, first-hand how important it is to secure flexible and bespoke home care for your loved one.
“Tiggo Care is born out of my own personal experiences, following my struggle to find suitable care for my parents, both of whom lived with rare diseases..."
Chris Williams - Tiggo Care Founder
At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.
We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.
Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.
We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice
At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.

And that’s it. You’re all set! We’ll introduce you to your loved one’s carer and the whole team, who’ll be able to provide you with all the ongoing support you’ll need.
Dementia care is a type of specialist care aimed at supporting those living with dementia, including Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Lewy Body dementia or frontotemporal dementia. Dementia care can involve supporting a patient with their personal care, domestic chores, companionship, meal preparation, medication reminders and mobility assistance.
Dementia patients struggle with communication and cognitive functioning. Therefore, dementia care should involve slow and clear communication to alleviate confusion, the establishment of a routine to limit additional stress, regular medication reminders and actively encouraging the patient to retain as much control and independence over their life as possible.
During the early stages of dementia, many patients do well at home, surrounded by familiar faces, personal belongings and set routines. Their confidence and sense of well-being often improve as they retain some of their independence. However, patients with advanced late-stage dementia may fare better in specialist residential accommodation.
A person with early onset dementia can live in a suitably adapted home for multiple years with the support of specially trained carers who can help with personal care, domestic tasks, mobility assistance and medication reminders or simply provide companionship.
Classic early symptoms of dementia include memory loss, mood changes, communication and decision-making difficulties, confusion, poor judgement and limited concentration. However, dementia can only be diagnosed by a medical professional and therefore if you suspect someone you love may have dementia, please encourage them to see their GP.
