More people than ever are seeing the benefits of remaining at home, in a familiar and comfortable place, to receive their dementia care, rather than uprooting to a care home where you will get less individualised support. We help people across England and Wales every single day who are living with dementia, and our dedicated Camden care are no exception. Dementia isn’t itself a disease, it’s the umbrella term for the approximately 200 recognised forms that cause cognitive decline and because dementia is a progressive, life-limiting condition, it is highly likely that you will require care at some stage along your dementia journey.
Receiving dementia care in your own home not only means that you get to stay alongside beloved family members and precious pets, but also in familiar surroundings that you may have spent decades of your life in, raising your family or building memories that are always a great comfort to you. Consequently, leaving all of this behind to move into somewhere you don’t know with unfamiliar people around you is not going to benefit your wellbeing as much as remaining where you’ve always been comfortable.
We’ve been delivering dementia care at home for over 30 years so you and your loved ones can be confident that we understand the best ways to support you. We offer dementia care on both a visiting care and live-in care basis, with visits starting from just 30 minutes per week, but we’ll devise your own bespoke care package to incorporate as many visits of whatever duration you need. With live-in care, your caregiver resides in your home with you, meaning additional reassurance for both you and your loved ones that you’re never alone, day or night. Whichever service you choose, our carers can undertake every aspect of your daily routine, including medication, mobility support, personal care, meal preparation, housework and helping you to access your local community.
Since we began caring for people in their own homes over 30 years ago, we have always prided ourselves on selecting the most naturally compassionate people to become Helping Hands carers. We train them well when they join us and offer regular development sessions to ensure that they are carrying out the most up to date practice with their customers, meaning you will always be cared for to the very highest standards. Because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can also have the highest levels of confidence in our consistent levels of exemplary care.
