Hemel Hempstead dementia support from Helping Hands
Being diagnosed with dementia can bring a sense of relief that you are getting answers for all of the changes you and your loved ones may have been witnessing recently, however it will also generate a lot of questions that you’ll need support to navigate through. Dementia care is something that will naturally come up in conversation, as some of the questions will inevitably revolve around who will take care of the person diagnosed when they need extra support.
When that time comes though, instead of putting extra stress on the shoulders of loved ones and friends, professional dementia care at home can be an affordable alternative that will see you fully supported in the home you love. Our local care teams across England and Wales tirelessly support our customers to live their best lives possible, and our dedicated Hemel Hempstead care team is no exception.
Why dementia home care is a good option
Receiving dementia care in your own home can mean you have a seamless care experience without the need to uproot and move into a residential home, where the unfamiliar surroundings, noises and people can have an impact on how well you’re able to live with your dementia. Being in a place that means the world to you, however, with loved ones nearby, pets at your feet and views from the window that you cherish, can have a positive effect on your confusion and anxiety levels and keep you calmer.
Our services can be delivered on either a visiting-care or live-in-care basis, depending on your preference and the severity of your condition, and with support starting from only 30 minutes per week, you can be sure we’ll tailor a package of care to suit you. Our amazing carers will help you with every aspect of your daily routine, including personal care, medication and meal preparation, and can also help you to access the community you’ve always enjoyed.
Dementia care services tailored to you
When the time comes for you to receive some extra care and support, Helping Hands’ compassionate and dedicated carers will come to you at home and ensure you have everything you need to live your best life possible. Because we’ve been delivering dementia care to our customers at home for over 30 years it means we know dementia and the best ways to help you live well with your condition.
Because dementia is an ‘umbrella’ term for the cognitive decline that results from Alzheimer’s disease or one of the other 100 or so forms, you need a company who has the experience to help you and your loved ones understand your dementia, whether you’re living with vascular, frontotemporal, Lewy Body or one of the less common forms of dementia.
Qualified dementia carers in Hemel Hempstead
Our carers are amazing and that’s not just us saying it – every day we get reviews sent to us stating just what a difference our carers have made to the lives of our customers and their loved ones, and nothing makes us happier than hearing that. We select our carers carefully because we want to be sure that they have high levels of naturally occurring compassion and kindness, because even though we train them on all the practical skills they need to look after our customers, we cannot teach them to truly care.
To keep you safe though, we also thoroughly check our carers’ backgrounds and screen them through the DBS, as we want you and your loved ones to be confident about who is entering your home, and our services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales which will reassure you that we always deliver the highest standards of care possible, every single day.
