Dementia is a very individualised condition, and just because two people may have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s for instance, doesn’t mean their experiences will follow the same pattern. Once a diagnosis has been received it will inevitably lead to many questions from the person diagnosed and their loved ones, such as ‘who will take care of me when my condition worsens’ and ‘will I have to leave my beloved home’? Therefore, you need a care provider who will treat you as an individual and always put you at the centre of your care journey. Helping Hands are a dementia specialist home care company and we’ve been caring for people in their own homes since 1989, meaning we really are one of the UK’s foremost dementia experts. We have already cared for thousands of people living with dementia so if you would like to learn more about how we can support you or your loved ones, contact our friendly team in Chichester today.
The reason care at home is such a positive option for someone living with dementia is because being surrounded by familiar objects, people and pets can help to reduce anxiety and confusion in some cases. A person living with dementia will often not react well to frequent change, so the branch will endeavour to send the same carer whenever possible. This will limit the amount of people that you or your loved one needs to get to know and will reduce the risk of confusion and anxiety that could come from constant changes. One-to-one support is something that can only be guaranteed at home, so if you are concerned about having to leave your home and move into residential care, talk to our knowledgeable Chichester team today. Thanks to the individualised care your Helping Hands carer will provide, supported by a plan that is uniquely tailored to you, we can ensure you are always at the centre of your care journey.
When a person living with dementia becomes agitated, confused or anxious, this is where Helping Hands’ fully trained dementia carers really excel. Each carer goes through a programme of dementia training before they care for their customers and therefore have a unique knowledge of how they can best support the person when in their home, especially through the difficult times. Dementia care isn’t just taking care of a person’s physical needs, it is also about emotional support and reassurance and our knowledgeable and experienced carers do that expertly. Whether you have regular, pre-planned visits from our carers throughout the day, or you prefer having a carer living in your home around the clock with you, be reassured that they are working for one of the foremost dementia specialists in the whole of England and Wales. Your care are supported by a flexible support plan that can be changed as often as your needs do, which means that your routines and preferences are always respected and carried out just as you like. Whether you need support with mobility, medication, meal preparation, housework, or any other aspect of your daily life, we can help.
Helping Hands is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and the Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can be confident that you are receiving high quality carers to support you or your loved ones. We are also part of the Dementia Action Alliance, meaning that we voluntarily agree to work to a set of goals and action points and are committed to transforming care outcomes for people living with dementia. You can be confident in our carers’ knowledge and experience when it comes to dementia care, as they go through a rigorous training programme including extensive instruction on dementia, so are ready to support their customer with every aspect of their care journey, emotionally and physically.
