Bromsgrove dementia support from Helping Hands
Dementia is not a ‘one size fits all’ condition; everyone’s experiences with dementia will be different, even if they are living with the same type of the condition, i.e. Alzheimer’s. That’s why you need a homecare company who treat people as individuals; creating a personalised, flexible support plan that can be changed easily if their needs change. Welcome to Helping Hands, the dementia expert home care company founded in 1989. Homecare needs to be flexible with any condition but especially with dementia, where no two days are likely to be the same. Someone with early-stage dementia may well be able to continue without care, coping with day-to-day tasks with just a level of support from family and friends. However, this isn’t the case for everyone, as the condition is a very individualised one and experiences will differ from person to person. Once a diagnosis has been acquired, it can generate a lot of questions and uncertainty for both the person diagnosed and their loved ones, so why not talk to the friendly home carers in Bromsgrove if you’d like to find out how Helping Hands can support you.Request a callback Email us
Why dementia home care is a good option
Care at home is a positive alternative to residential care because it means the person living with dementia can stay in a place they love, surrounded by the people, pets and possessions that mean the most to them. This will help to allay fears about leaving and going somewhere new, which can cause anxiety due to increased noise levels, unfamiliar people and confusion over why they may be there instead of at home. Even familiar views out of the window can be comforting for people living with dementia, especially if there is a beloved garden or something that they’ve always enjoyed looking at, so being cared for at home can certainly be advantageous.
Dementia care services tailored to you
Carers can visit for as little or as much time as you need, from 30-minute pre-arranged visiting care calls all the way up to live-in care. You or your loved one may only need a carer for assistance with light housework, prepare a meal, provide companionship, or support with medication, especially if the customer themselves are struggling to remember to take it on time. However, our carers can also support with personal care and bathing, manual handling or mobility and anything else you may need. Perhaps you’ve always been very social and you would like that to continue? Your carer can accompany you to meetings, appointments and get-togethers, no matter what they are. They will also take you to medical appointments, hairdressing visits and anywhere else you are able to, and still want to go. This is especially reassuring for family members who may not live close by, or who have busy lives of their own.
