Cannock dementia support from Helping Hands
After more than 30 years of delivering dementia care in our customers’ own homes, we are dementia experts who can guide you through the entire process of seeking care for yourself or a loved one. Our specialist assistance is guaranteed to help you live a more comfortable life at home and also support your family members with the difficulties they may face as they come to terms with your diagnosis. Our Cannock care team are dedicated to ensuring that all of their customers get to remain in the home they love and live as well as possible with dementia. Because dementia is a progressive condition, it is likely you will require care as your journey progresses, and because there are over 200 forms of cognitive decline that sit under the ‘umbrella term’ of dementia, we understand that everyone has a different experience with dementia and will always care for you as the individual you are, offering personalised care.
Why dementia home care is a good option
Dementia care at home is a positive alternative to uprooting and moving into a care home because it keeps you close to loved ones, while ensuring you get the support you need as your condition progresses. Our carers will be with you every step of the way, keeping you in a familiar environment and surrounded by precious memories, meaning your anxiety will be lessened and confusion kept to a minimum. We offer dementia care on both a visiting care and live-in care basis, with visiting care starting from just 30 minutes a week and going up to as many times of day and duration of visits that you need. Live-in care will see a carer living in your home with you, giving around the clock support and companionship, meaning continuous reassurance to both you and your loved ones that you’re never alone.
Dementia care services tailored to you
Our carers will ensure that you get to live as well as possible with dementia, helping you to make sense of your world around you and supporting your family with their emotional wellbeing too. Because we train our carers about dementia and make sure they understand the form that you’re living with, it means they will know that your life with Alzheimer’s will be different to someone living with Vascular dementia, for instance. Your bespoke package of care will be accompanied by an individualised support plan that will detail how you like your daily routines carried out, while we help you to create, preserve and reflect on memories every day. Whether you choose visiting or live-in care, our carers can support you with every aspect of your daily routine, including personal care, meal preparation, mobility and medication support, housework and accessing the local community.
Qualified dementia carers in Cannock
All of our Cannock carers are recruited locally and selected not only for their experience, but because they have natural compassion and empathy. After all, we can and do train all the practical skills needed to be a good carer, but we can’t train people on how to care from the heart. We also make sure that there are development opportunities available for our employees so that they can apply their updated skills into their customers’ care. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, and because we provide a fully managed service that covers the whole of your care journey from start to finish, we will support you at every step of the way, always to the very highest standards.
