Havant dementia support from Helping Hands
Dementia is an ‘umbrella’ term that encompasses over 100 different types of the condition, such as Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body and vascular dementia. Although symptoms can manifest in different ways, quite often it can be that a loved one is struggling to retain facts, names of people and other things, which will become obvious to loved ones and caregivers. It’s important to remember though that other conditions and natural ageing can also sometimes cause similar symptoms, but when it is very pronounced a diagnosis will often be sought, as that is when plans can start to be made for a loved one’s future care. Helping Hands has been supporting people living with dementia for more than 30 years and we really are the dementia home care specialists. If you would like to know more about how we can support you or a loved one, our friendly Havant home care team will be happy to discuss your options with you.Request a callback Email us
Why dementia home care is a good option
The first instinct for someone living with dementia is to worry that they’ll have to leave their beloved home, but residential care certainly isn’t the only option. While residential care might be the choice for some, at Helping Hands we believe that remaining in your own home can be the best option for anyone living with dementia, as by having cherished people, pets and possessions at hand, you may find your surroundings less confusing. Family and friends are often nearby too, and it can therefore be highly stressful to uproot and have to move to another location. You may have spent decades creating your perfect garden or perhaps changing your home to exactly as you want it, so why leave?
Dementia care services tailored to you
Our friendly team in Havant will spend time getting to know you and your requirements, creating you your own bespoke support plan that ensures your routines are always respected and followed as you’d like. Visiting care can be from a few hours a week and we can also provide full-time live-in care, so regardless of your requirements we can help. Your carer can support with personal care, housework, light gardening, cooking meals, administering medication and so much more. Perhaps you’d appreciate support to go to appointments, days out or even on holiday? Your carer will be able to do all those things too. Our carers will be on hand as often as you need them at prearranged times of the day or night, and we hope you’ll soon see them as a welcome addition in your home.
