Crawley dementia support from Helping Hands
Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be an unsettling time for both the person diagnosed and their loved ones, as while there’s relief at finally getting answers, there’s also uncertainty about what the future will bring. While someone may not need care at the start of their dementia journey it’s important to have the conversations about potential care preferences and wishes for the future while you can, so that both you and your loved ones are sure that when the time comes, you’re being cared for exactly as you wanted. Dementia care can be delivered on either a visiting or live-in basis and is designed to ensure that you or your loved one living with dementia continues to live their best quality of life while remaining in the home they love. Our Crawley care team are dementia specialists, just as all of our carers are, and they will be able to answer your questions and advise you on what your best options for care are at home.
Why dementia home care is a good option
Receiving dementia care at home can be beneficial for several reasons; firstly, because you get one-to-one, personalised care from dementia expert carers who will know the best way to support you, and also because as a company we’ve been supporting people with dementia in their own homes since 1989, so when we say we’re experts you can be confident we are. Remaining in a familiar environment for your care can also help ease confusion at change, whereas being in an unfamiliar care home setting, surrounded by lots of new people and noise could exacerbate feelings of anxiety, so being in the home you love, with the people, pets and possessions that mean the world to you nearby, is a positive choice for your care.
Dementia care services tailored to you
With Helping Hands’ exceptional standards of dementia care, we will design a package of care that suits your needs and requirements perfectly, and with your personalised support plan accompanying it, you can be sure that whether you choose visiting or live-in care, you’ll always receive the very highest levels of support. With visiting care, you will have calls from carers at prearranged times, where they will come to your home and carryout every aspect of your care routine so that your day-to-day life is fully support. This can include helping you to get up, washed and dressed, eat your meals, take your medication, go out into the community, undertake housework and laundry for you and so much more. Live-in care means that your carer will reside in your house with you, still delivering the same excellent standards of care, but also being with you around the clock as an extra reassurance to you and your loved ones. Whatever type of care is best for you, you’ll be fully supported by the Crawley team from the moment you first speak to them.
