Reading dementia support from Helping Hands
Recent studies predict that over a million people in the UK will be living with dementia by 2025. It is more common amongst the older generation and is an umbrella term for the hundreds of conditions that can affect the brain and memory. Dementia is usually a progressive illness, and for many people, the condition means that life can become increasingly challenging.
With over 30 years of experience in dementia care, we have been able to develop the services that we provide for our customers living with dementia, to ensure that we are giving the best support possible. Our care staff have been specially selected for their abilities and friendly personas, and our years of experience mean that we know exactly what is required to help our customers to feel safe, comfortable, independent – and, importantly, stay out of residential care.
Whether you are looking for someone who can help with light housework, clothes washing, and preparing meals, or someone to help with the administration of medication or nursing care, our fantastic care team in Reading is always here to help. We can fully adapt our services to suit your needs, adopting a person-centred care philosophy, and we cherish the fact that we can become friends as well as carers.Request a callback Email us
Why dementia home care is a good option
Thanks to our years of experience in providing high-level dementia care, we have a good understanding of what is required to help our customers who are living with dementia in the most effective ways possible. We now understand that it is important for people living with dementia to be living in comfortable, familiar surroundings, with a strong daily routine – which is not necessarily conducive to living in residential care.
With the home care services in Reading that we provide here at Helping Hands, we are able to ensure that our customers who have been diagnosed with dementia can stay living in the comfort, security, and familiarity of their own home. It also helps them to maintain a degree of independence and control over their lives, helping to preserve feelings of self-worth.
We can arrange for professional clinical, nursing care, provided by our registered nurses, full-time live-in care by specially selected live-in care staff, or visiting care – whereby your home is visited as often as you need by our friendly dementia support team – according to your own, specific needs and requirements.
