Portsmouth dementia support from Helping Hands
Being diagnosed with dementia can be a difficult time for everyone involved, as it will deeply affect those who love the diagnosed person, as well as the person themselves. Thoughts will naturally turn to what the future will bring and the effect it will have on the entire family, as well as eventual care needs that will ensure the person is cared for as they would want. This is where Helping Hands can make all the difference, as we’re a dementia specialist company who have cared for thousands of people living with dementia in their own homes since we were founded in 1989. Our friendly and professional Portsmouth care team will be able to guide you through the whole process of adapting to care, while ensuring you are always kept at the very centre of your care journey and promoting your independence every single day.
Why dementia home care is a good option
Dementia care at home is a positive alternative to having to move to a care home because you get to remain in the place you love and around people who mean everything to you. It may be that you also have pets that you’d be sad to leave or a garden that you put your heart and soul into planting, so it makes sense you’d be happier staying at home. It can also help to reduce the likelihood of anxiety and confusion if you stay in familiar surroundings and by having carers coming to your home it will ensure you get one-to-one care with people you recognise, rather than ever-changing care home staff. This will help you to feel comfortable and safe with our carers as they deliver every aspect of your daily routine.
Dementia care services tailored to you
Because we’re experts in delivering dementia care we know how best to support someone living with Alzheimer’s, vascular, Lewy Body or a rarer form of the condition. There are over 100 different types of dementia and many will manifest different symptoms, so you need someone caring for you who is familiar with the type of dementia you’re living with. Our care packages are all designed personally for our customers, with a bespoke support plan that details exactly how you like your daily care carried out. So whether you’d prefer visiting care from 30 minutes a week or live-in care for around the clock support, we can help you with personal care, medication, meal preparation, mobility, housework and so much more.
Qualified dementia carers in Portsmouth
We take care of our caregivers because that ensures they look after our customers, and because of the amazing work they all do on a daily basis they really are the heart and soul of our business. We know they’ll look after you properly because we equip them with all the skills they need to do so, except for their naturally occurring personal qualities of compassion and empathy – we can’t claim the credit for that. This is why we only select people who care from the heart to work for us, and those are the people who will give you the highest quality care at home and help you to live your best life possible. We are also regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) so you and the friends and family you care for can have total confidence in us to deliver the care we promise to.
