How Helping Hands can Help with Dementia Care
At Helping Hands we’ve been supporting people to live well with dementia since we were established back in 1989, and our compassionate carers work hard to ensure that happens every single day. We don’t leave anything to chance though; only employing people who demonstrate natural caring qualities and a willingness to keep necessary practical skills up to date. We also make sure all of our carers receive intensive dementia instruction so that they are ready to support people living with many different types, such as Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body, and Vascular dementia.
As well as carrying out practical support in our customers’ homes on either a visiting care or live-in care basis, carers can gently encourage and support someone to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This could be by accompanying them to exercise, helping to prepare nutritious meals, or facilitating favourite hobbies to reduce isolation. We understand the affect that an unhealthy lifestyle can have on both dementia and anxiety, and our carers are dedicated to providing an individualised experience for everyone we support.
