There are roughly 50 million people with dementia worldwide. The condition tends to appear in people over the age of 65, but it can develop at any age. Dementia can present a wide variety of physical, emotional, and behavioural changes and these can evolve rapidly. Having a loved one diagnosed with dementia can be devastating for your family, but it’s important to remember that there is lots of support available. At Helping Hands, we have been helping people with dementia maintain their independence and freedom for more than 30 years. We believe that there is nothing preventing a person with dementia from living a safe, comfortable, and enriched life.
Our specialist dementia carers can help you and your family take back control and overcome the challenges of dementia.
Here at Helping Hands we have 30 years of experience and provide the highest standards of dementia care as a result of our award-winning and fully-accredited training course. Our carers are carefully selected based on their skills, qualifications, and personalities. We always used permanent staff, never temporary. When you choose Helping Hands, you will benefit from dedicated one-to-one support from a fully-trained dementia expert. A lot of our carers also choose to complete additional training modules to broaden their skills and knowledge of dementia care. Our New Milton carers are making a real difference by helping people with dementia live the lives they want.
It is normal for people with dementia to require some level of care as the condition advances. You might become aware that a loved one is finding their daily activities more strenuous and you may feel worried about their safety. If this is the case, then we can arrange for a fully trained to provide home support. A home carer can assist with various activities such as running errands and shopping, housework, personal care, and managing medication. We place special importance on independent living and our carers will encourage your loved one to maintain their independence wherever possible. Our carers are also trained to provide encouragement and emotional support. Having regular visits from a carer can provide much-needed social interaction and mental stimulation for a person with dementia.
Being specialists in dementia care means we know just how stressful a change of scenery can be for someone with dementia. This is why we focus on providing support in the place that your loved one feels more comfortable – their home and community. Our carers will get to know your loved one’s daily routines and adapt to their lifestyle to ensure minimal disruption. Home care is a fantastic alternative to residential care and is the preferred option for many families. When you choose home care, your loved one will receive the specialist support they need while avoiding the stress of moving away from their beloved home comforts.
We understand that every situation different. This is why we use our knowledge and expertise to provide care as unique as you are. Our carers are renowned dementia experts and will develop a dementia support plan that has been tailored to the needs and preferences of your loved one. We can arrange visiting care from several days a week to full-time support. Live-in care is a great option if your loved one requires continuous support. You will be able to relax knowing that they are receiving support whenever they need it. Your dementia care plan will be continually reviewed and adapted to ensure the best possible care. We will also take the time to carefully match a home carer to your loved one based on their interests and preferences.
As a family-run company, we appreciate that it can be difficult to trust someone new with the care of a loved one. We want you to feel confident in our care service and will do whatever we can to make the process easier for you and your family.
