Dementia is a progressive condition, not caused by one particular disease but an ‘umbrella’ description for the cognitive decline resulting from Alzheimer’s and over 100 other forms. Helping Hands is one of the UK’s leading dementia care specialists because we have been caring for people living with dementia in their own homes for over 30 years. This means we understand how to best support people and have a wide range of knowledge about many of the differing forms of dementia and the different symptoms they can exhibit as their dementia journey progresses. Our dedicated Kings Lynn care team will be able to advise on how best to support you or a loved one living with dementia.
Remaining at home for dementia support is a positive alternative to feel you have to uproot to a care home. The familiar surroundings will ensure you feel comfortable and safe in that environment. You may have beloved family who you don’t want to be away from, with precious pets who stay by your side morning through night, so why leave them when you could have exemplary care at home, without the restrictions of visiting hours and other limitations.
At Helping Hands, our mission is “Our care makes it possible for you to live safely at home” and we live by that every single day. Our dedicated carers work tirelessly to ensure that you live the best quality of life you can at home while respecting your preferences and keeping your routine as consistent as possible, as you’ve always liked it. Change can be difficult when you’re living with dementia, which is why our packages of care are tailored around you and what your needs are, not what suits us. We can offer visiting-care or live-in-care so that you get exactly the support you need, whether it’s with personal care, medication, housework, accessing the community or so much more.
Our dementia training ensures that all of our carers get to know how best to support their customers in their own homes, but more than that, we only ever employ people as carers who have naturally high levels of compassion and empathy, which is something we cannot teach. It’s vital to us that we also look after our customers as well as our carers, so we always thoroughly check their backgrounds and screen them through the DBS before they’re allowed to enter your home. We’re also proud to be fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning you and your loved ones can be confident in our consistently high standards of care.
Please call our friendly customer care team any day of the week to discuss receiving care in the King’s Lynn area. Alternatively, you can contact us via our website, where we’d be pleased to call you back at a time convenient to you.
