There are currently around 50 million people living with dementia around the world and millions of new cases are diagnosed every year. Many of us will be affected by dementia in our lives and it’s important to understand the condition and its challenges. There is currently no treatment to cure dementia, but a lot can be done to support people living with the condition. Fortunately, many people with dementia continue to live independent, happy, and fulfilled lives. Our Maidenhead home care team believe that people with dementia should continue to live the lifestyle they want in the place they feel most comfortable – their home and community.
As one of the UK’s leading dementia care providers, our Maidenhead team has extensive and varied experience caring for people with dementia. Our carers offer the highest standards of dementia care and our services are fully-regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW), so you can trust in the quality of our care.
We place a special focus on dementia care and all of our carers are trained to understand what it’s like to live with the condition. Every Helping Hands carer is fully committed to helping people with dementia live on their terms and enjoy the lifestyle that they want.
People with dementia tend to find a change of environment unsettling and stressful. We believe that home care is the best option, as your loved one can remain living in the place they feel more comfortable. Dementia home care is a popular alternative to residential care as it allows people with dementia to stay in control of their lifestyle and routines. Your loved one can choose to stay in the place they know and love, without going through the upheaval and stress of moving into a residential care home.
Most people with dementia require some level of care as the condition progresses. Our fully-trained carers can step in and provide support whenever your loved one needs it. They can assist with many daily activities such as cooking, household chores, running errands, and administering medication. Having this support will allow your loved one to remain living at home safely and comfortably. One-to-one support from a dedicated carer can also provide a valuable source of companionship. Various studies have found that social interaction can help dementia patients by improving their health and sense of wellbeing. Most of our carers build meaningful relationships with the person they are caring for and become a trusted friend and companion.
Helping Hands boasts over 30 years of experience supporting people with dementia nationwide. Our carers apply their specialist knowledge and expertise to create care plans that are tailored to the needs of your loved one. We will always treat you as an individual with your own unique care needs.
Our Maidenhead team provides two main types of care: visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care starts from just a few days a week and can be increased depending on the care needs of your loved one. A specialist carer will visit your loved one at scheduled times to support with their daily activities and tasks. The level of care and frequency of visits can be updated whenever the care needs of your loved one change. On the other hand, live-in care involves a team of fully-trained carers being on-site 24/7 to provide around the clock support. Live-in care is the best option if your loved one has complex needs and requires continuous care. Our dementia home care services will give you peace of mind knowing that your loved one is receiving the care they need.
