You may have received a diagnosis of dementia after loved ones noticed a change in your behaviour or that you started forgetting small details. It often comes on quite gradually and people close to you will probably notice and recommend you seek medical advice.
Dementia is a progressive, life-limiting condition which means that it will sadly get worse and that there is no cure, however that doesn’t mean that you can’t live well with dementia and enjoy your life in the home you love for a long time after diagnosis. Receiving support and dementia care at home from Helping Hands’ dedicated Fleet care team will mean that you’ll get the care you need on either a visiting or live-in basis, from carers who are compassionate and devoted to helping you live as independently as possible.
By staying at home for dementia care you will feel comfortable and safe in familiar surroundings that mean the world to you. You may have loved ones around you, as well as pets and possessions that make your life complete, all of which can help to reduce feelings of anxiety and confusion and make you more relaxed. We’ll ensure that you will be completely taken care of in a way that fits your preferences and routine, whilst we always focus on maintaining your independence and promoting your dignity.
Every person diagnosed with dementia will have a unique and individualised experience, even if they’re living with the same condition as someone else. There are many different types of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease, vascular, Lewy Body and frontotemporal dementias.
There are over 100 recognised types of dementia and many of them are rare, but the chances are we will still have had experience of supporting someone living with them. This is because we’ve been providing individualised dementia care in people’s homes for over 30 years and are considered one of the UK’s foremost dementia care providers. We can offer care on both visiting care and a live-in care basis, and your bespoke package of care will be accompanied by a personalised support plan that will detail your routines and how best you would like your care carried out. This ensures that you’ll always remain at the centre of your care journey at all times.
Our amazing carers in the Fleet area are dedicated to making a real difference to their customers’ lives, and regularly go above and beyond to ensure that happens. We believe that our carers are the most compassionate in the homecare industry because we only select people who have natural qualities of empathy and kindness to work for us. This ensures that you’ll always be supported to the very highest standards by people who only want the best for you, every single day.
We put all of our carers through thorough background checks and also screen them through the Disclosure and Barring Service so that you and your loved ones can be confident of who is coming into your home, and because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, our consistently high standards will never decrease. For more than three decades we’ve been living by the ethos that we began with, and even though we’ve now grown to encompass 150 branches across England and Wales, our original focus will always remain the same, that of delivering personalised care that promoted your independence every day.
