There are millions of people living with dementia around the world. So, if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with the condition, then you must remember that you’re not alone. Many of us will be affected by dementia at some point and it’s important to understand how to support those with the condition. Dementia cannot be cured, although there are plenty of ways to support those living with the health condition. Fortunately, many people with dementia are able to maintain a good quality of life with the right treatment and support. At Helping Hands, we believe that a person with dementia should continue to live the lifestyle they want in their beloved home and community.
As one of the UK’s leading home care providers, our Newark care team has extensive experience caring for people with dementia. We offer the highest standards of dementia care as a result of our award winning training. This training programme puts our carers through rigorous training and assessments. All of our carers also complete regular refresher training to enhance their skills and ensure that their knowledge remains up to date. Our services are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW), so you can trust in the quality of our care services. We are also part of the Dementia Action Alliance which shows our commitment to improving the lives of those affected by the condition
At Helping Hands, we place special importance on dementia care and all of our carers are trained to provide compassionate one-to-one support. Every Helping Hands carer is fully committed to helping people with dementia live on their terms and enjoy the lifestyle that they want.
Someone with dementia will usually find a change of routine and living environment stressful. Home care services give your loved one the option to remain living at home surrounded by their familiar comforts. Dementia home care is a great alternative to residential nursing care as it allows people with dementia to maintain their independence and stay in control of their lifestyle. Your loved one can get the support they need at home, without going through the upheaval of moving to a residential nursing home.
It is natural for people with dementia to require some assistance as the condition advances. Our fully-trained carers are on-hand to offer support whenever your loved one needs it. A visiting carer can assist with various activities like personal care, cooking, household chores, mobility support, and administering medication. A visiting carer can also offer companionship and emotional support. Regular social interaction can offer many health benefits and improve a person’s sense of wellbeing. Having regular support from a carer will allow your loved one to remain living at home safely and comfortably.
At Helping Hands, we have over 30 years of experience supporting people with dementia in Newark and across the UK. Our Newark home carers draw on their specialist knowledge and expertise to create home care plans that are matched to the needs of your loved one. All of our home care services are flexible and can be customised to suit your care requirements.
Our Newark team offers two main types of care: visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care can be arranged from several days a week. A professional carer will visit your loved one’s home at scheduled times to assist with various activities and tasks. The frequency of visits can be increased or decreased to ensure the best level of care. If you choose live-in care, then your loved one will receive full-time support from a team of experienced carers. This means you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is receiving specialist support whenever they need it.
Being a family-managed company means we understand how difficult it can be to have a loved one diagnosed with dementia. However, it’s important to remember that you’re not alone – we’re here to help you overcome the challenges of dementia. If you would like to start the process of arranging dementia care or have any questions, then give our team a call. Our customer advisors are available 24 hours, seven days a week.
