While the symptoms of dementia are widely varied, the majority of cases will require additional support, whether that be the care and assistance of a loved one, or from a qualified professional. Dementia is a degenerative condition, which sadly means that symptoms will increase in intensity over time, affecting cognition, behaviour and activities of daily living.
Preserving the independence of somebody living with dementia requires different levels of support, unique approaches, and individual means of encouragement. While some are able to continue with their routines relatively easily, there are many in Islington who are in the latter stages of the condition and find it more difficult to manage by themselves.
With a dedicated Helping Hands carer in Islington who is qualified to support throughout every stage of dementia, you can feel confident in your ability to engage in your hobbies and keep up with your interests. A care plan tailored to your requirements enables you to be in control of your support and receive assistance as little or often as your condition requires.
Receiving dementia care in your own home provides convenience and comfort that is unrivalled throughout the care industry. For a person living with dementia especially, being around familiar surroundings along with the assistance of a familiar face is incredibly beneficial for combatting feelings of confusion and restlessness.
With the continuous support of a dedicated carer within your own environment, it’s much easier to upkeep your routine and rely upon somebody you trust in situations where you feel vulnerable. In addition to a care plan that is devised around your ongoing needs, the carer you’re provided with will have received rigorous training, be matched to your interests, and possess an exceptional aptitude for kindness and compassion, ensuring that you are in the very best hands at all stages of your condition.
Dementia care at home can begin with weekly visiting care to check-in and help out with any household issues, friendly advice, and ensuring you’re coping well from day-to-day. At the latter stages of dementia, it’s likely the care you receive will become more regular, from a handful of visits per week to full-time live-in care.
Your care package will be structured around your requirements and will alter throughout each stage of your condition to ensure you are getting all the help you need. While some customers need a hand getting around and keeping on top of their household chores, some require more personal care, from help with washing to gentle prompts to take your medication.
Rest assured, at any stage of dementia, there is a Helping Hands home carer in Islington prepared to aid you in your independence, boost your wellbeing, and provide the attention and kindness you need to persevere with your routine.
Every carer we employ is handpicked for their altruistic proclivity. From there, every staff member must pass a Disclosure and Barring Service screening and undergo intensive training, monitored and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure they are well-equipped to provide care throughout the Islington area.
