A diagnosis of dementia can understandably cause anxiety for the person diagnosed and their loved ones as it can make them wonder if their life will change and whether they’ll end up having to leave their home and go into residential care. This isn’t necessarily the case however, as dementia care with Helping Hands means that a person living with dementia can remain in the place they love the most, living as independently as possible. We have been caring for people with dementia for over 30 years, so we truly are experts in knowing how best to support someone living with the condition, regardless of which type of dementia they have been diagnosed with. The most common forms of dementia are Alzheimer’s, Lewy body, or vascular, but whichever type you’ve been diagnosed with, Helping Hands’ expert carers will be able to ensure you remain living your best life at home. All of our carers train extensively to learn about dementia and how best to care for someone living with the condition, which means that Helping Hands are uniquely placed to offer the best possible care experience for someone who wishes to remain living in their beloved home. Our friendly and helpful team in Evesham will be able to advise you on what your care options are, so do contact them with any questions you may have.
Being able to remain in your own home to be cared for can be both physically and mentally beneficial to someone living with dementia. Having to move to a new environment is unsettling for anyone, let alone someone living with dementia, so being able to remain at home, surrounded by family, pets and precious mementos of your life can be hugely beneficial in reducing anxiety and agitation, ensuring that yours or your loved one’s life continues as well as it did before diagnosis.
Your friendly team in Evesham can provide care on a visiting care basis meaning that you will have as few or as many calls a day as you require in a prearranged pattern, or as around the clock, live-in care, which means that you will have someone living in your home with you, supporting you at all times. Regardless of which you select, your care will be accompanied by a flexible support plan that will be devised by you, your decision makers and the Evesham team to ensure your care is carried out to the highest standards at all times. Your carer will be able to carry out tasks such as personal care, medication, housework, meal preparation and anything else that can assist you to live your best life at home. Whether you were always an active gardener or perhaps belonged to societies and clubs outside of your home, your carer will be able to support you to do the activities you’ve previously enjoyed, as well as any new ones that you might discover together.
Not everyone who applies to Helping Hands becomes one of our carers; we are very selective about who joins us, only employing the most compassionate and empathetic people who really have a passion for care inside them. All of our home carers go through a rigorous training program to ensure that they are experts in dementia and their learning continues throughout their employment, guaranteeing that they are always at the forefront of industry developments. Helping Hands is regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales which ensures that we are always delivering the highest standards of care dictated by the industry and we’re consistently rated ‘Good’ by them at our inspections. Additionally, we are proud to be part of the Dementia Action Alliance, meaning that we voluntarily agree to work to a set of goals and action points and are committed to transforming care outcomes for people living with dementia.
