Chigwell dementia support from Helping Hands
Being diagnosed with dementia can be an uncertain time for both the person diagnosed and their loved ones and may come after a person has been noticeably forgetting things or struggling with everyday tasks. In some ways, diagnosis can often feel like a relief after what will probably have been a long period of uncertainty and concern, however it will inevitably also bring up questions about care, such as ‘will I have to leave my beloved home’. Thankfully, Helping Hands have been supporting people to live as independently as possible within their own homes for over 30 years and due to the thousands of customers with dementia we’ve supported, we truly are one of the UK’s foremost dementia specialist homecare companies. Our friendly team in Chigwell will be with you every step of the way and can advise you on the best type of care for you, so why not call today to begin your Helping hands dementia journey?Request a callback Email us
Why dementia home care is a good option
Home care is a positive alternative to residential care for someone living with dementia because it will keep them in their own home, surrounded by comforting and familiar people, pets and possessions, which can often help to reduce confusion and anxiety. Having a carer come to your own home and carry out your care can also be preferable for many people as you will receive tailored one-on-one care with the same carer, whenever possible. We offer visiting care, which is when a carer comes to your home at pre-arranged times of the day or night and carries out whatever care you need as specified in your personalised support plan. We can also provide full-time live-in care if you would prefer to have someone living in your home with you around the clock, but regardless of the type of care you choose, you will always be supported by knowledgeable, expert dementia carers who will make a positive and welcome change to your life.
Dementia care services tailored to you
Dementia is an individualised condition, and the dementia care your loved one receives should be individual too. Every person living with dementia deserves to be defined by what they and their family still want from life, not by dementia. After all, the person is still there, even though dementia may sometimes make it difficult to recognise that. There are over a hundred different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, Pick’s disease and vascular dementia, so no two people’s journeys are going to be the same, even if living with the same diagnosed condition. Therefore, it’s clear that when planning care for a loved one you need a care company who puts the person at the centre of their own care journey and our expert carers and staff are dedicated to always doing that. Our carers will be able to support you with every aspect of your care needs, including medication, meal preparation, mobility, and personal care, or if you enjoy being social, they can escort you out and about too!
