When you’ve been diagnosed with dementia you will naturally have many questions about how your condition is likely to progress and so will your loved ones. It’s understandable that some of your queries will revolve around your care and when, or indeed if, you will need it.
While we can’t look into the future, at our Helping Hands’ dedicated Kingston upon Thames care branch we can help you to prepare for your potential care further along your dementia journey and help you to understand why remaining at home for your care is the most comforting result. Because dementia is a progressive, life-limiting condition there is sadly no cure, however our amazing carers will support you to live your best life possible while living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, on either a visiting or live-in basis.
Dementia care at home is a really valuable alternative to uprooting into a care home or residential facility, because you remain in a place that means the world to you, surrounded by people and pets that are the loves of your life. By staying at home for your care you also have access to all the possessions and items that make your life complete, whether that’s a garden you love, a shed that is your bolthole or photos of your loved ones everywhere.
Being in comforting surroundings can also help to reduce anxiety and confusion that is sometimes associated with dementia, and you and your loved ones won’t be subjected to restrictions and visiting times as you would in a care home.
By choosing Helping Hands for your dementia care you will be cared for by a company with more than three decades of dementia experience, meaning your support is delivered by carers who understand dementia and will do all they can to help you live as independently as possible. Because we can deliver flexible care on either a visiting or live-in basis, we’ll be able to support you with all of your daily routine, in a way that suits your requirements.
For instance, our carers can support you with your personal care, medication, meal preparation, mobility, housework and so much more, including supporting you to access the community if it’s something you enjoy. Visiting care can be delivered in just 30 minutes per week, whereas live in care gives you and your loved ones the reassurance of having someone with you in the house at all times.
Our carers are amazing and really are the beating heart of Helping Hands, but that’s because we’re very careful about who we employ to join us. We only take people on who share our ethos for providing the highest standards of care possible to our customers in their own homes, which means we can be confident that you’ll always receive the highest standards of care. We ensure that all of our carers are screened through the Disclosure and Barring Service before they get to set foot in their customers’ homes, meet their customers, as well as having their background thoroughly checked so that you can be confident of who is coming to care for you.
We’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so that you and your loved ones can be totally confident that you’ll always receive the consistent standards of care we’re known for. We have 150 branches across the whole of England and Wales and we’re growing all the time, demonstrating that Helping hands really is the company to trust for yours, or your loved ones’ care.
