There are approximately 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and thousands of new cases are diagnosed every year. This widespread health condition can have a major impact on a person’s daily life and cause a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms. Being a family-run company, we understand how devastating it can be to have a loved one diagnosed with dementia. Sadly, there is not yet a cure for dementia. The good news is, with the right support, people with dementia can maintain their quality of life and live well despite the condition. Our Market Harborough home care team are dedicated to supporting people with dementia in the place they know and love – their home.
As one of the country’s leading dementia home care providers, Helping Hands is renowned for offering the highest standards of dementia care. Our Market Harborough team has years of experience supporting people with dementia and is truly passionate about quality home care. All of our carers are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW). This means you can have confidence knowing that your loved one will receive the highest standards of dementia care in the care industry.
Helping Hands carers are hand-picked following a rigorous recruitment and training process. This ensures that our carers have the skills, qualifications, and personalities to provide exceptional home care. We always use permanent care staff, never temporary. Many of our carers also opt to enrol in additional dementia qualifications to expand their skills and knowledge of dementia care. Our carers are passionate about their roles and committed to helping people with dementia take back control and live on their terms.
A change of routine and living environment can cause severe stress and anxiety in someone with dementia. This is why more and more families are choosing to care for their loved ones at home instead of moving them to a residential nursing facility. Our dementia home care services offer a fantastic alternative to residential care. Your loved one will be able to continue living in their home and community and you won’t need to worry about their safety or wellbeing. One of our dementia carers can provide the specialist support that your loved one needs to maintain their freedom and independence.
Our dementia home care services can assist with a wide range of daily tasks such as housework, getting ready in the mornings, grocery shopping, and administering medication. Helping Hands carers also receive training on how to provide emotional support to people with dementia. We will carefully match a carer to your loved one based on their needs, interests, and preferences. This will help to ensure that your loved one feels comfortable with their new caregiver. Having regular social interaction and companionship can be hugely beneficial for a person with dementia. Many of our carers build strong and meaningful relationships with the person they are caring for.
We understand that every customer’s situation is different. This is why our home care plans are completely flexible. You can choose visiting care and arrange care from as little as a few days a week to more frequent daily visits. If your loved one requires more intensive support, then we can create a live-in care support plan. This means that your loved one will receive full-time care from a team of carers who are trained in dementia care. Your care plan will be reviewed regularly and can be amended whenever your needs change. This flexibility ensures that your loved one continues to receive the best possible care.
As a family-led company, we know that arranging care for a loved one is likely to be a difficult time for your family. We are here to help you every step of the way by ensuring that your loved one gets the support they need to maintain a good quality of life. We are making a real difference in Market Harborough – and throughout the UK – by helping people live well, despite the challenges brought on by dementia.
