Customising your holiday

A MindforYou holiday is uniquely tailored to your needs and preferences.  Here’s how.

On your holiday, MindforYou staff provide:
  • Companionship in the house and on excursions

  • Individualised or group activities e.g. listening to special songs, going for a walk, doing a jigsaw.

  • Prompting and escorting people to the toilet at the property or on excursions.

  • Transport during your holiday and assistance in and out of vehicles.

  • Establishing safe & mobility friendly access to cafes, shops, restaurant and excursion venues.

  • Emergency support between 9pm and 9am if required.

MindforYou does something no other holiday provider does: we get to know you before you come on our holiday.

Completion of our Support Questionnaire, personal phone calls with our experienced staff and visits to your home are the ways we ensure we understand what support we need to have in place to make your holiday safe and special.

Our high quality tailored support is not a special add on. One member of our team supports two couples on our holiday from 9am to 9pm.

By Car

Experienced, compassionate drivers from MindforYou or our partners Driving Miss Daisy will take you from your front door to your holiday destination.  Our drivers are there to make your journey as care free as possible. They are incredibly flexible, allowing you take as many comfort breaks along the way as you want. They’re also on hand to play your favourite tunes to entertain you and your loved one all the way to and from your MindforYou holiday.

By Train

We do all the hard work! We find the trains you need, at the correct times, and book all tickets with ‘Journey Care’ to ensure you BOTH get the support you need at the station and en route. We guarantee a MindforYou member of staff will be there to meet you on the platform, help you with your luggage and the next leg of your journey.

By Plane

We take away all the stress for you. We find the best flights for you, book them and can arrange your transport to and from the airport. We make your airline aware you are travelling with someone living with dementia so you can have priority through security, boarding to suit your needs and even a companion at the airport . A MindforYou member of staff will meet you and help you with your luggage and the next leg of your journey.

MindforYou recognise that sometimes you need extra support to be able to fully enjoy and relax on your holiday. This is why we offer one to one support and/or can assist you to find personal care providers for your holiday with us.

Personal Care Brokerage

If you have a personal care package at home we strongly recommend this is transferred while you are on your holiday with us, so you can experience the full enjoyment and relaxation of your holiday.

We know some of you are nervous about introducing a new care provider, so that’s why MindforYou provide a Care Brokerage Service, to ensure you are confident the personal care you have suits your loved one with dementia.

Experienced MindforYou staff work with you and your current care provider, and if relevant your social work professionals to identify exactly what is required.

MindforYou approach local care companies or experienced personal assistants to identify personal providers. MindforYou make the introductions and you decide if you want to employ them. We then take care of all the paperwork and organisation for you, so you don’t have to lift a finger or worry about this on your holiday.

MindforYou only introduce personal assistants who are or have been MindforYou members of staff. They are all qualified in personal care and have had the appropriate background checks. The care agencies we introduce you to have all been CQC inspected and the appropriate background checks have been made.

 To encourage you to transfer your package of care MindforYou only charge you 10% of the cost of your holiday care for this service.

MindforYou One to One Support

Our One to One Support started in 2016 when one of our guests, Madge asked us if we could provide one to one support for her husband. She felt this extra support could help her relax even more on her next holiday. There would be no worry about pushing Ron in his wheel chair , or concerns he may be getting more support than some of the other guests.

MindforYou then established our one to one service where you have one of our support staff from 9am to 9pm. This service means you can guarantee you never have to push your loved one in their wheelchair on excursions, can finish your newspaper every day of your holiday, take a long shower whenever your want or just continue a good chat with the people you meet on holiday.

Depending on your loved one’s dementia we may be able to arrange for you to have the day completely to yourself to meet some old friends together, do some shopping or just read a good book.

There is an additional charge for this service which cover the cost of your member of staff.
