Being diagnosed with dementia can be a very anxious and unsettling time for the person and their loved ones, however with the right support a person can go on to live well with dementia and not have to feel as if everything in their life has changed. Dementia is an ‘umbrella’ term for over 100 different conditions that effect cognitive function, the most common of these being Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. There are also many rarer forms of dementia, as well as brain damage that can be associated with particular lifestyle choices such as Korsakoff’s, which is often caused by excessive alcohol consumption leading to a lack of thiamine, leading to cognitive impairment similar to dementia.
You may have noticed your loved one becoming more forgetful or perhaps leaving the house and becoming lost, but whatever the reason for seeking their diagnosis, Helping Hands’ friendly team in Boston will be able to support you all and ensure your loved one lives their best life possible with dementia.
Remaining in your own home for dementia care support is a positive alternative to moving into residential care for several reasons:
Whether you choose our visiting or live-in care service you will always have the same high quality care delivery that will ensure you live your best life possible at home. Our carers can support you with every aspect of your day-to-day routine and make sure that precious memories are kept close, through memory book work or other methods. Even if you don’t need care right away it is always a good idea to have the conversations with your loved ones while you are able to, discussing what you would like to happen regarding your care as time goes on. You’ll have a bespoke package of care created by us and a personalised support plan for your carers to follow, so you’ll always have the highest levels of consistent care at home.
We are a dementia specialist company and have supported many thousands of our customers to live well with dementia over the years. Our carers are supported by their local branch team to ensure that they understand dementia and how they can best take care of their customers and are given training that is built upon as their experience grows. We are accredited by many organisations, not least the Dementia Action Alliance due to our expertise in dementia care and because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales you can be confident that our high standards will always remain consistent.
