Dementia care can take many forms, whether you’re being cared for by family, professionally or you’ve moved into residential care. But what if you don’t want to leave your beloved home? You may have lived there for decades and be surrounded by precious items, pets and even people that spark your memory and help you re-live those golden years on a daily basis. This is where you need Helping Hands; we’re a long-established home care company with exceptional expertise in caring for people living with dementia. Founded in 1989, we offer visiting and live-in care to help support you or a loved one living with dementia and can make all the difference in the person’s care. Dementia can manifest in many ways but the most common is often a deterioration in memory or once-familiar recollections, so if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with dementia, look no further than our friendly and knowledgeable Brighton home care team for support.
Care at home is hugely beneficial to someone living with dementia, simply because being in a familiar environment, with familiar things all around can be comforting and help memory recall. The confusion of having to relocate to an unfamiliar place, compounded with the unsettledness that naturally comes from moving somewhere new can be detrimental to a person living with dementia’s health, both physically and mentally.
Care at home can truly make all the difference though, as your carer comes to you, in the place that you love and would never want to leave. This has such a marked benefit to your wellbeing and is truly the best of both worlds as you are expertly cared for, in the place you love best.
Dementia care from the Brighton branch can take the form of visiting care, where your carer will come to you at pre-arranged times of the day and carry out your care needs, or live-in care, where your carer lives in your home with you and is a reassuring presence around the clock. Regardless of whether you require visiting or live-in care, your carers will be able to undertake whatever your flexible support plan contains, such as mobility support, medication, meal preparation, housework and so much more. And because your support plan is flexible, if your needs change so will it, with no compromise in your care at all. All of our carers are highly trained and experienced in dementia which is why Helping Hands is widely considered the dementia specialist amongst homecare companies.
We pride ourselves on only choosing the best carers to join Helping Hands, which is why you can be confident in the care you will receive. Every employee is knowledgeable about dementia and our carers receive extensive training before they ever meet their customers; furthermore, professional development continues throughout their career to ensure that they are always at the forefront of industry knowledge and are able to apply this when caring for their customers. We are proud to be a part of the Dementia Action Alliance, which sees care providers and supporters of people living with dementia come together to promote wellbeing. We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who have consistently awarded our care ‘Good’ status, so along with Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) screening, you can be confident of who is entering your home and caring for you.
