Dementia care symptoms can vary significantly from person to person, and the condition is progressive, which means that people will often show different behavioural and physical changes depending on the stage of their condition. We tailor every dementia care package to each individual to ensure that your loved one is receiving the care that they need.
Dementia is a common health condition and it is highly likely that you will know someone with the condition at some point in your life. Sadly, dementia tends to have a major impact on those affected, on a physical, mental and emotional level. However, there is plenty of support available to help people with dementia live a happy and fulfilled life. It is important to keep in mind that plenty can be done to manage the symptoms and put those affected back in control of their lives.
Helping Hands has been improving the lives of people with dementia for over 30 years. As one of the UK’s top care providers, we place a special focus on dementia care. Our Newbury care team receive award-winning training through our very own Centre of Excellence – the first of its kind in the UK. This programme involves a series of intensive training and assessments. Along with this, Helping Hands is part of the Dementia Action Alliance, demonstrating our commitment to improving the lives of people living with dementia in the UK.
Every Helping Hands carer is taught to understand dementia and the challenges facing those affected by the condition. This means that you can have complete confidence that our carers will provide the best possible support for your loved one. All of our carers are committed to helping people with dementia take back control and live the lives they want.
A change of living environment can be extremely distressing for someone with dementia. For that reason, many families are choosing to care for their loved ones at home rather than in residential care facilities. Home care services allow those with dementia to remain living independently and safely in the place they know and love – their home.
Our carers will help your loved one maintain a healthy routine and live the life they want in the comfort of their home and community. A dedicated carer can assist your loved one with a wide variety of daily tasks including household chores, cooking, shopping and running errands, administering medication, and personal care. All of our carers also receive training on how to support people with dementia emotionally. A carer will be carefully matched to your loved one based on their needs, interests, and preferences, enabling them to build a good rapport. Having regular social interaction and companionship can be extremely beneficial for people with dementia.
At Helping Hands, we understand that everyone’s situation is different. The symptoms of dementia vary widely and people respond differently to the condition. For that reason, we offer an extensive selection of care packages that can be customised to suit your loved one’s specific needs. This means you could have a regular carer visit for as little as 30 minutes per week to help with tasks around the house. Or, we can arrange for a dedicated carer to live with your loved one and provide full-time care.
We use our knowledge and expertise to provide care as unique as your loved one is. Your loved one’s support plan will be reviewed regularly and updated as soon as their needs change. So, you can have peace of mind that your loved one will receive the highest level of care at all times.
We understand that acknowledging and admitting that care is needed can be daunting. We also appreciate that it can be extremely difficult to decide how best to support a loved one with dementia. However, we are here to help you every step of the way by ensuring that your loved one gets the quality care that they deserve. We are making a difference in Newbury – and all across the UK – by helping people live the lives that they want. We want everyone to feel in control of their lifestyle, regardless of any health conditions they may face. If you would like to discuss how we can help then give our specialist team a call – we are available seven days a week.
