Dementia affects people in different ways, however, some of the common symptoms you may experience are memory loss, problems with language and mood changes. Dementia is a progressive condition, which means your symptoms will get worse over time, but with the right care, you can still live an independent and content life.
At Helping Hands, we have more than 30 years of dementia care experience, so no wonder we are widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading dementia home care providers. Our Melbourne care team will ensure you are provided with person-centred care, so you can live the life you aspire to lead.
A change of environment can be distressing for someone living with dementia, which is why we believe being cared for at home is better. You will be able to remain in the place you love, be close to your partner, loved ones and beloved pets, while receiving the very best care from our amazing carers.
One of the most common symptoms of dementia is confusion and being in a familiar environment can help you feel safe, comfortable and reduce anxiety. It’s no wonder, why more families are opting for home care rather than residential care homes. As it’s a place where you can be your normal self and have the flexibility to live life on your terms.
At Helping Hands, we understand how important it is to maintain a routine, especially if you are living with a type of dementia. That’s why we take time to understand your requirements, personal preferences and ensure our care packages are tailored around you.
We will make sure you receive person-centred care from the same person, so you can create a bond and trust with each other. This way we can ensure your routine is maintained and encourage you to do the things you enjoy. Whether that’s spending time in the garden, taking a walk to the park or completing sudoku puzzles, we will continue to support you to carry out your hobbies.
Our Melbourne care team can provide you with care for as little as 30 minutes a week with visiting care or constant, ongoing support throughout the day and night with live-in care. Our carers can assist you with personal care, changing the beds, taking your dog for a walk and much more – you won’t have to worry about a thing.
Our compassionate carers are widely recognised as dementia specialists, so you know you’ll be in good hands. We are also part of the Dementia Action Alliance, as we are committed to improving the lives of those living with dementia.
All our carers are trained to ensure they have the essential skills to look after you. They also go through rigorous background checks. We are also fully monitored and regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know you’ll receive valuable care from one of UK’s leading home care providers.
