We’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading dementia home care providers, with over 30 years of experience taking care of our customers who are living with dementia in their own homes. Whether you or a loved one is living with Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Lewy Body or mixed dementia, we are experts in taking care of you and promoting your independence every day. Being diagnosed with dementia understandably brings up many questions and fears for the future but it needn’t be that way.
You may not need professional care until much further along your dementia journey and even then, you’ll have already hopefully discussed with your loved ones what form your care should take. Remaining in your own home while receiving your dementia care is an increasingly popular choice, rather than uprooting to an anonymous care home. The Loughton care team will support you from the first phone call, guiding you and your loved ones through the process seamlessly.
The reason so many people choose to remain in their own homes for their dementia care is simple; you feel safe and comfortable there and you may have done so for decades, and you’re still the same person, though you’re now living with dementia, so why should you leave? Staying in the home you love can help you to remain calmer and less anxious as well as reduce your levels of confusion, so it makes sense to stay somewhere that will benefit your wellbeing so much, rather than unbalance it. Looking out at a favourite view, having family around or having precious pets all can contribute to you continuing to live well with dementia, so why not remain in the place that will help you to be as happy as possible.
At Helping Hands we’ve been delivering the highest quality of dementia care in our customers’ own homes since 1989, so it goes without saying that we’re experts at what we do. Whether you would prefer dementia care delivered on a visiting basis – where our carers come to your home from just 30 minutes per week up to as many visits per day and of varying duration as you need, or on a live-in care basis where they reside in your home around the clock, you’ll still receive the same consistently high standards of care.
Depending on the stage of your dementia and the complexity of your condition you may prefer to never be alone at home, but whichever you feel is suitable, our carers can still support you with medication, personal care, mobility, meal preparation, housework, laundry, helping you to access the community and so much more.
We truly believe that our carers are the real beating heart of Helping Hands, thanks to the fact they are so dedicated to our customers and frequently go above and beyond to deliver the most exemplary care. Whilst all of our Loughton carers will have differing levels of experience, all of them will have familiarity with dementia and their knowledge and expertise will be growing every day.
We ensure that our carers have access to the latest training and industry developments in dementia and all relevant subjects, which they are then able to apply to the care of their customers. We are very selective over who becomes a carer for us because we feel they must have naturally high qualities of compassion and empathy, and consequently only a small amount of our applicants make it through. However, we know this ensures that the ones who do will always put their customers first and deliver the high standards of care we demand and will also more than satisfy the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, both of whom we are fully regulated by.
