There are approximately 850,000 people in the UK diagnosed with dementia and thousands of new cases are recorded each year. Many people are affected by dementia, either directly or by having a loved one diagnosed with the condition. While there is not yet a cure for dementia, there are various ways to support those living with the condition. At Helping Hands, we believe that everyone with dementia can continue to live a happy and fulfilled lifestyle with the right care and support. Our home care in Middlesbrough team are making a real difference – and all across the UK – by helping people with dementia live life on their terms.
At Helping Hands, we are proud to be one of the UK’s leading dementia care providers. Our specialist care team has over 30 years of experience supporting people with dementia nationwide. Our Middlesbrough team is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW). Our carers are equipped with the skills, knowledge, and expertise to provide outstanding dementia care. All of our carers understand the challenges faced by those living with dementia and take an empathetic approach to caregiving. Most of our carers have a special interest in dementia care and choose to earn additional qualifications to expand their knowledge. Our carers are passionate about helping people with dementia take back control and live life on their terms.
Most people with dementia find comfort in a consistent routine and lifestyle. A change of environment can be extremely stressful for a person with dementia and cause intense feels of anxiety. This is why we always recommend home care as the best option when supporting someone with dementia. Our dementia home care services provide a fantastic alternative to residential care. Your loved one can remain living in the place they know and love, and avoid the stress of moving to a residential nursing facility. We also offer live in care in Middlesbrough.
One of our dedicated dementia carers can step in and provide support whenever your loved one needs it. They can assist with various daily tasks such as cooking, running errands, housework, accompanying at appointments, and administering medication. Additionally, they can also provide companionship and emotional support. A carer will be carefully matched to your loved one to encourage easy rapport and a strong bond. You can have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is receiving the physical and emotional support that they need.
Our team are experienced with supporting people with dementia. We know that every situation is different and we will always view your loved one as an individual, with unique care needs. We understand that the symptoms of dementia vary greatly from person to person. This is why we provide a broad variety of home care plans that can be customised to your individual needs.
At Helping Hands, we specialise in home support and provide two types of care – visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care starts from just several days a week, but we can arrange frequent visits if your loved one requires regular support. Our carers will schedule visits at a time that is convenient for your loved one and adapt to their daily routines. On the other hand, live-in support provides 24/7 care from a team of live-in carers. This is the preferred option for customers with complex care needs like advanced dementia. Our dementia home support plans are monitored and updated whenever the needs of your loved one change. We will take the time to get to know your loved one’s daily routines and care for them in a way that they are comfortable with.
Reaching out to ask for help can be unsettling, but our knowledgeable and friendly team are here to support you every step of the way. If you would like to start the process of arranging home care or have any questions about our dementia services, then get in touch. Our customer service advisors are available 24 hours, seven days a week and they are always happy to help.
