When you’ve been diagnosed with dementia you may have many questions about what the future is likely to hold for you and your loved ones, and whether you’ll be able to manage without professional care. While in the early stages of your dementia journey you may feel that you’re managing fine and that you’re getting all the support you need, however as time goes on some professional care from a company who understands dementia will take the pressure off those family members who are caring or you.
Because dementia is a life-limiting, progressive condition you sadly won’t recover from it but everyone’s experiences are different and it’s perfectly possible to live well with dementia for quite some time. Our friendly and dedicated Kidderminster care team will be able to answer your questions and explain to you your options for care, and it’s important for you to be able to express your wishes for the future and ensure your care is carried out just as you would like.
Remaining in your own home for dementia care rather than moving into a residential home doesn’t just mean you get to stay in the place that you love best and where you’ve created many memories, it also helps to reduce your confusion and related anxiety because you’re somewhere you feel safe. Dementia affects your memories, but it doesn’t affect your ability to ‘feel’, and the emotion that is attached to a place or person that you love will always remain, even if you are unsure who the person is anymore. The familiarity of a well-loved home and its ingrained positivity will help you on those difficult days when you are struggling with the condition that has led to your dementia, whether it’s Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, or something rarer.
Because our amazing carers can come to your home on either a visiting or a live in care basis, we can tailor your care package to exactly fit your needs, whether you need us for a short visit once a week, several throughout the day or even around the clock care. Helping Hands have been delivering the highest standards of dementia care in our customers’ homes since we were founded in 1989, and we continue to do so for thousands of people every single day, which is why we’re considered the dementia home care specialist. Our carers can provide support with every aspect of your daily routine, such as personal care, mobility, meal preparation, medication and housework, or help you to access the community and attend important appointments. Basically, whatever care you need, we can provide.
Because we’ve been providing dementia care for so many years we really do understand how to support people to live well with dementia, which is the focus of our dementia care at all times. Whatever stage of your journey you’re at, whether it’s diagnosis, middle-stage or palliative care, we will be there for both you and your loved ones. Our carers are incredible and support our customers to live the best life that they can at home, regardless of their condition, regularly going above and beyond to ensure they are safe and happy in their surroundings. We carefully select and thoroughly train our carers to make sure we only choose the best people to join us, and we think it really shows. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which not all care companies are, further demonstrating our commitment to only delivering the very highest standards of care at all times.
