If you’re in the Hampshire region and you’ve been diagnosed with dementia, you might want to investigate your care options as early as possible in your dementia journey. This is because you will be able to talk with your family about your preferences for your eventual care, whether it’s complementing the care that they can provide you, or you need around-the-clock live-in care.
While dementia is a progressive condition with no cure, you can continue to live well for a long time after your diagnosis. Receiving support and care at home from Helping Hands’ care teams across Hampshire means you’ll get the care you need from compassionate and devoted carers who will support you to live as independently as possible.
Dementia is an individualised condition, meaning that every person diagnosed will have a different experience along their dementia journey. At Helping Hands, we don’t believe there is a ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to caring, and consequently, the support you receive should be personalised to your preferences.
There are many different types of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body, and vascular dementia, which is why dementia shouldn’t be thought of as a singular illness, but rather the cognitive decline resulting from another condition. We’ve been supporting people living with dementia on a visiting care and live in care basis since we were founded in 1989, and because of that we are highly experienced in helping people live as well as possible before, during, and after diagnosis.
Our carers are selected from across the Hampshire region and beyond and are carefully chosen to ensure they embody our values of delivering exceptional care and promoting our clients’ independence. All of our carers have thorough background checks performed and references are taken because we need to be sure only the people who should be coming into your home are doing so.
We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, demonstrating that our consistently high standards of care are always maintained. We were established as a family business and even though we’ve grown to over 160 local branches across England and Wales, our original focus will always remain the same: ensuring our clients have personalised care delivered by outstanding carers.
