Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be a relief in many ways after weeks or months of uncertainty, however it will also bring up as many questions and prompt you and your loved ones to wonder what the future will bring. Because dementia is a life-limiting, progressive condition, thoughts of care will probably come up sooner rather than later and it’s important to have those conversations while you are all in the frame of mind to do so. Choosing care for yourself or a loved one is an important decision, and that’s where Helping Hands come in. We’ve been supporting people living with dementia in their own homes since 1989 and our exemplary levels of care are demonstrated by all of our branches across England and Wales. Our Bradford care team are no exception, and they’ll take care of you and advise you on your care options from the first moment you call them.
Dementia care at home is advisable due to the benefits of you remaining in a familiar and comforting environment. If you were to relocate to a care home you would find yourself being cared for by different people all the time, due to the rotation of their care staff, and having to get used to a whole new set of surroundings. By staying at home though you’ll receive one-to-one care from the same small team of carers and whether you choose our visiting care or live-in care service you’ll never have to worry about the high standards of care you’ll receive.
Staying in your own home for dementia care will mean you get to stay around people who mean everything to you, as well as precious pets and possessions. Perhaps you planted your garden yourself years ago and by staying at home you’ll be able to see your favourite views from the window or see the grandchildren playing in your home as your children once did. By designing you a bespoke care package we will ensure that your care is personalised to you and that you always remain firmly at the centre of your care journey.
Our carers are dedicated and professional and they take their responsibilities to their customers very seriously. We ensure that they remain motivated and their skills updated by providing excellent training when they join us and opportunities to develop their skills as time goes on. To reassure you and your loved ones about who is entering your home, we also thoroughly check our carers’ backgrounds and screen them through the Disclosure and Barring Service. We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can be confident that we’ll consistently deliver the high standards of care we promise to.
If you’d like to find out more about your dementia care options in the Bradford area, please call us seven days a week or alternatively, contact us via our website and we’ll be happy to call you back.
