There are approximately 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK. It is a common belief that dementia only affects the elderly, but it can actually develop at any age. Being diagnosed with dementia can have a massive physical and emotional impact on your daily life. Having a loved one diagnosed with dementia can also be extremely difficult. Sadly, there is no cure for dementia and the symptoms generally become more intense over time. The good news is, there are plenty of ways to support a person with dementia. At Helping Hands, we believe that every person with dementia should continue to live a safe and happy life on their terms.
Founded in 1989, Helping Hands carers have been providing outstanding dementia care to people throughout the UK for over 30 years. Our Northampton carers have considerable experience and are renowned experts in dementia care. Our high training standards mean that you can have complete confidence in the skills and expertise of our dementia carers. Many Helping Hands carers decide to enroll in further training modules to enhance their skills and knowledge of dementia care. Our care team is passionate about quality home care and dedicated to improving the lives of people with dementia.
Most people with dementia have challenging and complex care needs, especially as the condition progresses. This can make it difficult to know how to support a person with the condition. The symptoms of dementia also vary from person to person and tend to change quickly and without warning. For that reason, we always recommend seeking professional guidance from a carer who has been trained in dementia care. Our carers are experts in the field of dementia care and can help your loved on lead a safe, happy, and independent life.
It is normal for people with dementia to become more forgetful and to find certain activities more strenuous. Often, family members become concerned for the safety and wellbeing of a loved one with dementia, particularly if they live alone. If this is the case, then we can arrange for a professional carer to step in and provide the support that your loved one needs. We understand that a change of scenery can cause stress and anxiety in a person with dementia. This is why we will care for your loved one in the place they know and love – their home. Our dementia home care services offer a great alternative to residential nursing care. You loved one can continue to live safely and comfortably in their own home while their care needs are met.
We are proud to be one of the UK’s leading dementia care providers and our Northampton home care team is experienced in caring for people with the condition. We draw on their expertise to design unique care solutions that are customised to suit your loved one. We know that every situation is different and we will take the time to learn about your care needs and treat you with kindness and respect.
Our Northampton team provides two main types of home care: visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care starts from several days a week. A carer will be carefully matched to your loved one based on their needs and preferences. Your dedicated carer can assist with many activities including personal care, household chores, running errands, or administering medication. Our carers are also trained on how to provide emotional support to people with dementia. A regular friendly face can provide an excellent source of companionship and social interaction. If your loved one has regular care needs, then live-in support will ensure that they receive continuity of care. A team of fully trained carers will be at your loved one’s home to provide 24/7 care and support.
We know that acknowledging and admitting that care is needed can be unsettling, but we’re here to help you every step of the way.
