Billericay dementia support from Helping Hands
Care at home is a preferable alternative for many people living with dementia who prefer staying in comfortable and familiar surroundings, rather than relocating to a nursing or care home. Dementia is a progressive, life-limiting condition which, while not always needing care in the early stages, may see you need it as your dementia journey progresses. At Helping Hands, we understand dementia and will support you from the very first moment you call our Billericay care team. In addition, because we’ve been caring for people living with dementia for our entire 30+ year history, you can be confident that we’ll always put you firmly at the centre of your care journey.
Why is dementia home care a good option ?
Remaining in your own home for dementia care can be beneficial to your wellbeing because staying in familiar surroundings may reduce your confusion and ease subsequent anxiety. Moving from the home you love into a place you don’t could be traumatic for anyone, let alone someone who is having difficulty with what’s happening around them on a daily basis, so by receiving dementia care at home you will find your days stay exactly as you want them to, with a routine carried out that suits you, not the care home’s schedule.
Dementia care services tailored to you
By offering dementia care on both a visiting care and live-in care basis, we ensure that we can design a bespoke care package that works for you. Our visiting care sees carers come to you at prearranged times of the day, for durations that suit you, so that you can receive the essential care that you need. Whether we’re there to carry out all of your daily tasks or just to give your family a break, we can undertake personal care, medication, meal preparation, housework, mobility support and much more, including supporting you to access the local community. Our live-in carers can support you in exactly the same ways, with the added benefit of around the clock care and companionship, meaning additional reassurance for you and your loved ones.
Qualified dementia carers in Billericay
Because we’ve been supporting people living with dementia for over 30 years in their own homes, we really understand how dementia can affect both you and your loved ones on a daily basis. Our carers are instructed in how best to care for people with the most common forms of dementia and thanks to our clinical nursing team, more complex circumstances can be trained on as well, meaning individualised care for you every single day. We consider training as important as experience, as someone can be new to care but have the core traits of what makes a good carer, such as compassion, patience, empathy and kindness; after all, we can teach everything else, but not those vital qualities. Because of our amazing carers and the fact we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you can be certain we’ll always deliver the high standards we pride ourselves on.
