Dementia care symptoms can vary significantly from person to person, and the condition is progressive, which means that people will often show different behavioural and physical changes depending on the stage of their condition. We tailor every dementia care package to each individual to ensure that your loved one is receiving the care that they need.
If you or your loved one is living with dementia, then you’re not alone – there are currently around 850,000 people in the UK with the condition. Although there is currently no known cure for dementia, plenty can be done to manage the symptoms and there is nothing to stop someone with the condition from living a safe and happy life. There is a fantastic amount of support available to help people with dementia take back control and live an independent lifestyle on their terms.
Here at Helping Hands, we have over 30 years’ of care experience and offer the highest standards of dementia care. Our award-winning and fully-accredited training programme provides all of our carers with extensive training and assessments on dementia care.
All of our carers have been carefully selected and are passionate about providing quality dementia home care that is tailored to their customers’ needs. Many of our carers also choose to complete additional training modules on dementia care to further expand their skills and knowledge of dementia. We are making a real difference in Bolton – and all across the UK – by helping people with dementia live the lives they want.
A change of scenery and routine can be extremely stressful and upsetting for someone with dementia. This is why so many people are choosing to home care Bolton for their loved ones with home care services, rather than considering residential nursing care.
Someone with dementia may not need any support in the beginning, although most people require some level of home care as the condition advances. The symptoms of dementia vary greatly from person to person and can change rapidly. With that in mind, it is important that a person living with the condition has the right level of care and support from someone who has been specially trained in dementia care.
A dedicated carer can assist with a variety of daily tasks including household chores, personal care, administering medication, and assisting with mobility. All of our carers have received specialist training on dementia care and are committed to helping people with the condition live on their terms in the place they feel most comfortable – their home.
We understand that everyone is different, which is why we use our knowledge and expertise to provide care as unique as your loved one is. Our Bolton home care team are renowned dementia experts and will develop a completely customised dementia care plan that has been tailored to your loved one. We can provide anything from short weekly visits, to several visits per day and full-time care. This will be continually adapted as and when their needs change to ensure that they are constantly receiving the best possible care.
A home carer will be carefully matched to your loved one to ensure they are a suitable match. We will take their needs, interests and preferences into account to ensure their carer is the most suitable option. Many of our carers go on to form extremely close bonds with the person they are caring for and provide a valuable source of companionship.
As a family-run company, we understand how difficult and upsetting it can be to have a family member diagnosed with dementia. However, it is important to remember that you’re not alone – we’re here to help you cope with the various challenges that come with dementia. Everyone’s situation is different, which is why we will take the time to discuss the best options for your loved one. You can call our specialist customer care team for a chat seven days a week.
