Liverpool dementia support from Helping Hands
For those that are living with a form of dementia, it can be quite difficult to adjust to your diagnosis and your new way of living. You may be struggling to remember words for things or become confused more easily than you did before, or perhaps a loved one is unable to care for themselves any longer and they need assistance with personal care. Whatever your needs are, dementia home care from our specialist carers at Helping Hands Liverpool will put all of your minds at ease.
The great thing about our dementia care is that we tailor each support plan to the individual, so that everything is bespoke to you, your needs and preferences, with support being seamlessly increased should you ever need extra care.Request a callback Email us
Why dementia home care is a good option
Dementia home care is exactly that: care for someone living with dementia whilst they remain living in their own home. This is a particularly good option if your loved one has been fiercely independent and is slightly resistant to having any kind of extra help, because we can come to you and take everything at their pace. It also means that you don’t have to worry about them leaving their beloved home, possessions and comforts and moving into residential care; they can continue to live and be cared for where they feel safe, seeing friends and relatives whenever they wish.
Dementia care services tailored to you
For those at the early stages of their diagnosis, they may only be comfortable with a carer popping in a few times a week to help them with the housework, getting the shopping and making the occasional meal in a safe environment. This will allow them to build a rapport with their carers and perhaps help when they move onto the later stages of their condition, where they may need more intensive support from a 24-hour live-in carer, who will be their main carer and be on hand round the clock should they need it.
Our Liverpool team are very much about promoting independence and ensuring those that they care for who are living with dementia are always treated with respect and dignity. That’s why we don’t just support you at home, but we can also assist you to get to day centres, visiting the city for an afternoon of sightseeing and accompany you to appointments.
