At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing transformative, compassionate home care to customers across England and Wales since 1989. In that time, we’ve helped tens of thousands of people to live more independently, securely and confidently in the reassuring and comfortable surroundings of their own home. Whatever stage of your dementia journey you’re at, our dementia specialists will go above and beyond to make sure you’re able to manage the symptoms of your condition and enjoy the best possible quality of life.
Remaining at home for dementia care, rather than moving to a residential nursing home or hospice, is becoming an increasingly popular option. One of the main symptoms of many types of dementia is a heightened sense of confusion and disorientation, and this can be exacerbated by being in new surroundings. Staying at home, where you’ve got familiar views, sights, smells and sounds, can help to calm dementia-related anxieties and provide a safe haven where you’re able to spend more time with the people you love.
We know that no two people are on the same dementia journey; your condition and circumstances are completely unique to you, and you’ll have your own specific set of needs. That’s why we’ll always make sure we offer you a dementia care plan that is fully tailored to you, and we’ll adapt it accordingly as your condition changes and develops. Our fantastic dementia carers will be able to provide you with support that is specific to your condition, allowing you to enjoy the best possible quality of life – whether that’s through visiting care or on a live-in care basis.
Our Halesowen care team are fully qualified to provide specialist dementia care to people with various types and stages of dementia. We believe our carers are the very best in the business, as we’re very particular about who we recruit to our care teams. We only hire people who display natural empathy and kindness, as we believe these are essential qualities for a care-based role, and we make sure all of our carers undergo thorough background checks before joining us so that we can be confident they’ll be a perfect fit for us and for you. When they start with us, every new carer receives our award-winning training, as well as having their knowledge and skillset regularly updated through refresher courses. Plus, for your full peace of mind, all of our care services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know we’re absolutely committed to only the very highest standards of care.
