Dementia is a common medical condition that affects many people during their lifetimes. It can affect people of all ages, although the condition is typically diagnosed in people over the age of 65. Living with dementia can have a massive physical and mental impact on the person diagnosed and there is currently no cure for the condition. Nevertheless, many people with dementia continue to live safe and happy lives with dementia care and support. At Helping Hands Macclesfield, we believe that people with dementia can continue to live life on their terms in the place they feel most comfortable – their home and community.
Founded in 1989, Helping Hands has more than 30 years of experience supporting people with dementia across the UK. As part of their training, our dementia carers are taught to understand the unique challenges faced by those living with dementia. This means you can have complete confidence in the knowledge and expertise of our specialist dementia carers. All Helping Hands carers are trained to provide quality dementia care and many carers go on to complete additional qualifications to enhance their skills and knowledge. Our carers are passionate about providing exceptional home care and committed to helping people with dementia live happy and enriched lives.
When a loved one is first diagnosed with dementia, they may not require any additional support. However, it is likely that they will develop care needs as the condition advances. You might become aware that a loved one is finding their daily routines more strenuous and this may cause you to feel concerned about their safety and wellbeing. In this situation, a specialist dementia carer can be brought in to provide the support that your loved one needs. Visiting care may involve personal care, administering medication, mobility support, or assisting with household chores like cooking and cleaning. Having support at home provides an excellent alternative to residential nursing care. Our dementia care services mean that your loved one can remain living at home surrounded by familiar comforts.
It is important to remember that the symptoms of dementia can change quickly and require various care approaches. Your loved one may display a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms and this can make caregiving a challenge. This is why we always suggest seeking support from a dementia specialist who has received professional training in dementia care. With our support, your loved one can continue to live a safe and fulfilling life.
As one of the UK’s leading dementia care providers, our Macclesfield team boasts unrivalled experience in dementia care. We draw on our expertise in the care industry to design customised support plans that are matched to the care needs of your loved one. We appreciate that every situation is different. This is why we will always take the time to get to know you and create a care solution that will suit you and your family.
Our Macclesfield team specialises in home care and offers two types of care: visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care is fully flexible and can be scheduled for as little as several days a week. A dedicated carer will visit your loved one at a time that is convenient for them and can assist with various daily activities and tasks. Whereas, live-in care provides around-the-clock support from a team of fully-trained carers. Live-in care is a great option if your loved one has complex care needs and requires regular or continuous support.
We understand that deciding how to support a loved one with dementia can be a daunting task, but we’re here to help you in any way we can. Our carers will take the time to learn about your situation and explain the different care options available to you. If you would like to start the process of arranging dementia care, then contact us today. Our friendly customer service advisors are available 24 hours, seven days a week and they are always happy to help.
