Being diagnosed with dementia can understandably feel like the end of the world for some people, however it is perfectly possible to live well post-diagnosis for quite some time, especially if you have provision in place for the time when you’ll need extra support. By looking into future care needs sooner rather than later, you can be sure that your wishes will be followed regarding how and where you receive care. Because Helping Hands have been delivering exceptional dementia care across England and Wales since 1989, it’s no surprise that we’re considered the UK’s dementia home care specialists, so if you’re looking for dementia home care in Cramlington we’re the ones to trust. And because all of our exceptional care and support is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and the Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones will always know you’re in the best hands with Helping Hands.
Whether you’re immediately post-diagnosis or you’re further along your dementia pathway it’s likely that you will need some additional support at some point. While family members will undoubtedly do their best to support you it sometimes takes the knowledge of dementia professionals to help you live your best life, in the home you love. Some people will presume that you’d be better off in a care home but the reality is that remaining in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of your own home will help to reduce anxiety and confusion and help you live well with your dementia.
Because we only deliver care in our customers’ homes and have been doing so for four decades, we’re experts in knowing how you like to be supported. We specialise in person-centred care, recognising that everyone we care for is different, and never employing a ‘one size fits all’ attitude to the support we deliver. This ensures that we are always keeping our customers where they want to be, safely supported in the place that means the world to them, whether you need us on a visiting or live-in care basis.
Our carers are unlike anyone else, they’re the most compassionate, kind people you’ll find working in the industry. We’re proud of what they achieve for our customers every single day, helping people who are living with dementia to continue living as well as possible, both in the homes they love and in the local community. We insist on special personal qualities of the people who work for us, namely kindness as number one teamed with empathy, compassion, and a willingness to go above and beyond. This is how we know that our carers are the best you’ll find, and because we upskill them, build on their existing experience, and offer qualifications, they’re also the most knowledgeable. In fact, we’re proud that so many of our managers began as carers with us, choosing to remain and develop their career while sharing their knowledge.
