Support with dementia in Preston
It is estimated that there are roughly 50 million people with dementia around the world. Most of us will be affected by dementia in our lives, either directly or by having a loved one diagnosed with the condition. Dementia is a common health condition and it is important to understand the condition and its challenges. Unfortunately, there is no cure for dementia, although there are many ways to support those living with the condition. The good news is, many people with dementia maintain a good quality of life with the proper care and support. At Helping Hands, we believe that everyone with dementia should have the freedom to live life on their terms and remain in the place they feel most comfortable.Request a callback Email us
Preston dementia support from Helping Hands
As one of the UK’s leading dementia care providers, our Preston care team has many years of experience supporting people with dementia. We offer the highest standards of dementia care. Our award-winning training programme requires our carers to complete intensive training and assessments on dementia care. All of our carers also complete ongoing training courses to expand their knowledge and ensure that their care approach remains up to date. Our services are fully-regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW), so you can trust in the quality of our services and carers. Every Helping Hands carer is passionate about quality care and committed to helping people with dementia live well despite the condition.
Why dementia home care is a good option in Preston
A change of routine and environment can cause huge amounts of anxiety and agitation in a person with dementia. This is why you focus on supporting people in their homes, where they are surrounded by familiar comforts. Our dementia home care services will allow your loved one to remain in control of their lifestyle and routines. They can stay living in the place they know and love and avoid the stress of moving to a residential care facility. This is why so many families are now choosing home care over residential nursing care.
It is normal for a person with dementia to need some support as the condition advances. We can arrange for one of our carers to step in and provide assistance whenever your loved one needs it. A carer can help with a wide range of daily activities like cooking, cleaning, running errands, shopping, and administering medication. Having this support will allow your loved one to maintain a good quality of life and continue living at home comfortably and safely. Regular visits from a carer can also provide a fantastic source of companionship and emotional support. Many research studies have linked social interaction to improved health and wellbeing in people with dementia. A regular carer can become a trusted friend and companion to your loved one.
Dementia care services tailored to you
At Helping Hands, we boast more than 30 years of experience supporting people with dementia. Our carers draw on their expert knowledge and expertise to design care solutions that are tailored to the needs of your loved one. We will always treat you as an individual with your own unique care needs.
Our Preston home care team offers two main types of care: visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care can be arranged from several days per week. The frequency of visits will be increased or decreased depending on the care needs of your loved one. A one-to-one carer will visit your loved one at scheduled times to assist with their daily routines and activities. The level of support can be updated whenever the needs of your loved one change. Whereas, live-in support involves full-time care from a team of fully-trained carers. Live-in care is the best option if your loved one has complex needs and requires regular or continuous support. You can relax knowing that your loved one is receiving the specialist support they need, whenever they need it.
