Choosing care can be necessary when you are progressing along your journey living with dementia, as it can be a huge responsibility for family members to provide all of the support you’ll require on a daily basis. Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can provide important answers after weeks or months of uncertainty, however being told you have a form of dementia will also raise more concerns about what the future will hold. Dementia is the term for the cognitive decline that results from having one of over 200 forms of associated conditions, of which Alzheimer’s is the most commonly occurring and well-known. Our amazing Clacton-on-Sea care team can make all the difference to your daily wellbeing thanks to their dedication and knowledge of dementia, and will ensure you are fully supported, both physically and emotionally, from the first moment you contact them.
Remaining in a place you love when you’re living with dementia can be of enormous benefit to a person’s physical and emotional wellbeing, because staying somewhere familiar can help to reduce confusion and associated anxiety. Perhaps you’ve lived in your home for decades, raised a family there, or planted the garden yourself, so it’s obvious that the home that means so much to you is the place where you’d want to stay. There’s no need to imagine you’ll have to go into a care or nursing home to receive high standards of care, as you can have an even more individualised care delivered in your own home on a one-to-one basis.
Helping Hands offer dementia care on both a visiting and live-in care basis, which means that we are able to tailor a package of care to your bespoke requirements. If you choose visiting care you’ll have as many or as few calls as you need, with care delivered in your own home from just 30 minutes per week. Live-in care will see a carer reside in your home with you, offering care and companionship around the clock, meaning you’ll never be alone at home. This doesn’t mean they won’t promote your independence at all times though, it just offers an extra level of reassurance for both you and your loved ones. Whichever service you choose, you’ll have support with every aspect of your daily routine, including personal care, medication, meal planning, mobility, housework, laundry and going out into the community.
We’ve been delivering high quality dementia care in our customers’ homes since 1989, and since then, we’ve become experts in our knowledge of how to support people living with dementia. We have almost 150 branches around England and Wales now and a network of managers working in the field to ensure our customers receive exemplary care every single day. We choose our carers carefully to ensure that they have natural qualities of compassion and empathy, then train them thoroughly so that they have all the skills they need to look after their customers as well as possible. Our carers work tirelessly every single day to promote their customers’ independence and preserve their dignity, and make sure they learn as much as they can about their customer’s condition when they go to care for them. This ensures personalised, excellent standards of care at all times, and because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can always be confident in our ability to deliver the highest standards of care.
At Helping Hands, we understand dementia and how stressful it can be to decide to seek care for yourself or a loved one. Our customer care team can answer all your questions and allay your worries about care at home, so call them today or seven days a week.
