At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing our customers with compassionate, transformative dementia care for over 30 years. Our Dorchester care team are expertly trained and fully equipped to help you or your loved one live with your condition and support you to enjoy the best possible quality of life every step of the way along your dementia journey.
We firmly believe that remaining at home for specialist one-to-one dementia care is, in most cases, the best option available. Home is a great place to receive dementia care, because it’s where your loved one will be at their most comfortable and confident. For many dementia patients, the value of being surrounded by familiar sights, sounds and smells cannot be underestimated.
One of the predominant symptoms of most types of dementia is a heightened sense of confusion and anxiety. Staying in their home and making it dementia-friendly, rather than moving to a residential nursing home, can go a long way to helping your loved one manage these symptoms and reduce their stress levels. They’ll also be able to spend more time with family and friends, rather than being restricted to certain visiting hours.
When it comes to complex conditions such as types of dementia, we know that everyone’s going to have their own very specific set of needs that makes their dementia care requirements completely unique to their condition. That’s why our dementia care experts in Dorchester will perform a full assessment of your needs, as well as taking heed of your personal preferences, before offering you a care plan that is perfectly suited to your particular situation.
Whether you’d benefit from a few hours of weekly visiting care to start with, or need live-in care for round-the-clock support, we’ll always be as flexible as possible and will be able to adapt your care plan as your condition changes or progresses. We’ll then continue to monitor your condition as it changes and progresses so that we can adapt your support as necessary.
Our Dorchester care branch comprises a team of empathetic, highly trained dementia carers who are passionate about ensuring our customers receive life-changing support that helps them to live with and manage their condition. All of our carers have been selectively recruited for their personable, dedicated approach to their roles, and are subjected to a series of background checks and DBS checks before joining Helping Hands.
Upon starting with us, every carer receives our in-house training – which we’ve been delivering and updating for 30+ years – and will continually undertake regular refresher courses to keep their skillset and knowledge up to date. We also make sure each and every aspect of our care provision is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know that our carers will always be completely accountable to an independent regulator.
