Dementia case study – Dorothy's story
The warm and trusting relationship that Dorothy, who lives with dementia, shares with Magda, her carer, enables her to stay in touch with her friends, family, and local community.
Understandably, Dorothy’s daughters were at first apprehensive about entrusting their mum’s care to a stranger. But Magda’s friendly and engaging attitude soon eased their worries. Now, thanks to Magda’s support, the time they get to spend with Dorothy is quality time.Read Dorothy's story
Caring for couples – the Pickworths and the Cherrys
One of the most rewarding aspects of providing live-in care is enabling couples to remain living together in homes they have shared for years.
It may be the case that one partner needs help caring for their loved one, or both partners are in a position where the prospect of residential care seems to be a likelihood.
The Pickworths and the Cherrys are Helping Hands customers whose happy experiences have shown that with live-in care, nobody has to leave their family home or their partner behind.Caring for couples
