If you have a loved one living with dementia you might notice that they are having difficulties in completing different aspects of their daily routine, such as running errands, remembering to take their medication or completing personal care tasks. This difficulty can result in your loved one feeling agitated or frustrated, and can put them at a higher health risk.
As a condition dementia can be very varied. The symptoms differ greatly depending on which stage of the condition your loved one is at, and can also vary greatly from person to person. As the condition progresses, you might notice a number of behavioural and physical changes that require different care approaches.
While there is currently no known cure for dementia, plenty can be done to support your loved one living with the condition, to ensure that they are able to continue living fulfilling, happy, and comfortable lives. One of the main focuses of dementia care is allowing your relative to continue living in their own home, but still receive the assistance they need.

Consistent care is vital when supporting an individual who is living with dementia, so our home care in bristol team will work to a specific routine to avoid confusion while ensuring continuity.
It can be daunting for someone living with the condition to experience a change in routine and environment. That is why a growing number of families are opting for home or domiciliary care, over residential care – so their loved ones can maintain their routine and independence, without the disruption of moving somewhere unfamiliar.
As one of the leading providers of dementia care in the UK, we have nearly three decades of experience in supporting people to live an independent and happy life at home. We have introduced the Helping Hands Dementia Champion accreditation which ensures unrivalled quality standards of care. This is awarded to qualifying carers and managers on completion of our vigorous training and assessment programme. They receive a bronze, silver, or gold standard to reflect their training, knowledge, and competencies.
Along with this, Helping Hands is part of the Dementia Action Alliance, demonstrating our commitment to improving the life of people living with dementia in the UK.
All of our Bristol carers have received award-winning professional training that is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and the Care Inspectorate Wales. They then take part in on-going training to further their knowledge. You can therefore have confidence in the fact that our carers have the expertise to make life easier for those living with dementia, and can manage any difficulties that the condition can bring.
