Daventry dementia support from Helping Hands
When you need dementia care because your condition is progressing, you and your loved ones want reassurance that you’ll be cared for by a private homecare company that understands dementia. Receiving the all-important diagnosis is huge because it means you and your loved ones get answers about what has been changing for you over the previous months or years, yet being told you have dementia can also conjure up a thousand other questions, such as ‘will I have to leave the home I love?’ and ‘who is going to take care of me?’ Because dementia is actually the ‘umbrella’ term for the cognitive decline that occurs when you are living with Alzheimer’s disease, Vascular dementia, or one of the other around 200 forms of the condition, no two people’s experiences are ever going to be the same, and our dedicated Daventry care team will ensure you always get cared for as the individual you are.
Why dementia home care is a good option
Deciding whether to stay in your own home for dementia care or leave it and go to a residential care home is a very personal decision that will affect both you and those around you, however when it comes to dementia, remaining in your home will often be the best option. This is because some of the confusion and resulting anxiety that comes with dementia can be made worse by being in unfamiliar surroundings with changing faces you don’t know, whereas staying in the home you know and love, with people and pets who mean the world to you, can often help. As can having the same small group of carers come to you every day, which is what you get with Helping Hands.
Dementia care services tailored to you
Whether you require visiting care, where our carers come to you at home as often as you need them, as an aide to family carers or to do everything you need, or you’d like someone to live in your home with you, we can help. Our carers will be able to support you with every aspect of your daily routine, making sure your care takes place as you have personally selected it to, whether that’s your personal care, meal preparation, mobility and medication support, housework, laundry or helping you to access the community. Our visiting care starts from just 30 minutes per week, whereas live-in care gives you and your loved ones the reassurance that you’re never alone at home, whether during the day or overnight.
Qualified dementia carers in Daventry
Not everyone gets to be a Helping Hands carer; we are careful to make sure that we choose the most compassionate and naturally caring people to look after our customers. Experience is great obviously, but we are happy to train someone on everything they need to know if they’ve never cared professionally before, as we feel the personal traits of kindness and patience are far more important and something that can never be taught. Regardless, everyone who joins us receives comprehensive training, background checks and is DBS screened before they meet their customers, giving you and your loved ones extra reassurance about who is entering your home. We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales to give you and your loved ones confidence and reassurance, and to make sure you know that you’re always being cared for by the best.
