Norwich dementia support from Helping Hands
Dementia affects each individual in different ways and is also dependent upon the type of dementia someone is living with. Although Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, there are other types that present quite differently, which is why our Helping Hands care team in Norwich create bespoke support plans for those they are providing care for.
We’ll get to know your loved one, their personality, their hobbies and their care needs, so that their package of care is completely tailored to them. Not only will we keep them safe and well at home, but we can enable them to continue meeting up with friends, attending day centres and getting out and about in Norwich – keeping their sense of self and independence.
Why dementia home care is a good option
Living with dementia can be quite an adjustment, not just for the individual but their family too. As dementia specialists, we understand how important it is to continue keeping to a routine for someone living with dementia, which is why we’ll keep to a select pool of carers for your loved one and ensure their care keeps to the same structure each visit.
As well as giving you all peace of mind that your loved one is getting the right support for them, it may also help ease some of the other symptoms of their condition, such as confusion or anxiety. After all, the familiarity of being at home surrounded by your home comforts is something that would make anyone feel safe and secure, which is exactly the same for someone requiring dementia care.
Dementia care services tailored to you
Our dementia care service starts from as little as 30 minutes per week, where our friendly carers will support your loved one with the housework, preparing meals and going to the shops. You can increase the level of support you receive at any time by regular hourly visits to check in on your loved one and keep them company, all the way up to 24-hour live-in care.
Our live-in care dementia service caters for round-the-clock support and will enable your loved one to always have someone on hand whenever they should need them. This may be a particularly favourable option if your loved one is living with a spouse or partner who is unable to provide the right level of care for them themselves, or for someone who has complex care needs in addition to their dementia diagnosis, for example, if they require support for a stoma or catheter.
Qualified dementia carers in Norwich
All of our carers in Norwich are trained to the highest standard before they begin caring for our customers in and around the city and also at regular intervals during their time with us. Their assessments include detailed dementia training to ensure that they can support our customers living with the condition, covering modules such as the sensory and emotional symptoms of dementia, supporting families and the different stages of dementia.
Our team is also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who monitor our service for its responsiveness, effectiveness and safety – ultimately giving all of our customers and their families peace of mind that they are in safe hands when it comes to their care.
