Being diagnosed with dementia can be a shock to many people and is often as hard on the relatives and loved ones of the person diagnosed. Conversations about what the future may hold can be difficult, however they’re important to have so that the person’s wishes can be known and also so that the family as a whole have an idea of what to expect, preferably with a dementia professional who can answer questions that you all will have. Dementia is an umbrella term for over 100 different conditions causing cognitive decline, so it’s important to know more about the type of dementia the person has been diagnosed with, whether Alzheimer’s or something rarer. While the person diagnosed may not need professional care straightaway, the friendly Dagenham care team will be able to answer all of your questions and advise you on the type of care they can provide, from short visits to full-time live-in care.
Receiving care at home when you’re living with dementia is a positive alternative to having to leave the home you love and move into residential care. This is because staying amongst familiar and comforting surroundings can often help to reduce confusion and anxiety in the person, especially when loved ones are still in the same property and you’ve lived there together for many years. Having our carers come to you also means you’ll receive one-to-one care and support from familiar faces, something that the majority of care homes are unfortunately unable to promise.
When you receive dementia care at home from Helping Hands you’re in the expert hands of a company who has been providing dementia care in our customers’ homes since 1989. We design a bespoke package of care tailored exactly to you and ensure that your personalised support plan details every aspect of your daily routine and how you like your care carried out. We offer either visiting care, where carers come to you at pre arranged times of the day and carry out your support before leaving to visit another customer, or live-in care, where the carer resides in your home with you around the clock. Either service will give you the highest standards of care in your own home with help for tasks such as medication, meal preparation, personal care, housework and so much more, and will reassure your loved ones that you’re receiving care of the very highest standard from a dementia expert company.
Our carers are incredible, not just because they regularly go above and beyond to ensure that their customers live their best possible life at home, but also because they are some of the most caring and compassionate people we’ve ever met. It’s not just us that thinks that way either – our customers and their loved ones often post reviews online saying exactly the same thing. We go the extra mile to keep you safe too, as every single Helping Hands carer who comes into your home is fully screened and DBS checked. We train our carers well and only select people who will uphold our ethos for always delivering the very highest standards of care, and because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can have the highest levels of confidence in our service.
