Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can offer some relief to you and your loved ones after the months or years of uncertainty, however it can also bring up more questions than it answers in some cases. For instance, ‘what will the future hold’ and ‘am I going to need care?’ While we can’t see what the future holds or how your condition will develop, Helping Hands can offer you excellent dementia care at home, thanks to over 30 years of experience supporting people living with dementia to remain in the home they love. Our friendly and dedicated Ripon care team will be able to answer many of the questions you may have and help you put a plan in place for when care is eventually needed.
Remaining in your own home to receive dementia care is beneficial in many ways, not least because being in familiar surroundings can be comforting, helping to reduce your confusion and potential anxiety. You may have planted your garden decades ago and you enjoy spending time out there, or perhaps you have a cherished view you wouldn’t want to be without. There’s also the beloved partner you’ve always woken up with or the pets that mean the world to you. Regardless of the reason, remaining in your own home and receiving care on either a visiting or live-in basis is a positive way to avoid having to move into residential care.
Whether the Ripon care team support you on a visiting or live-in basis, you’ll still receive the highest levels of care from compassionate carers who go above and beyond to ensure you live your best life as independently as possible. Your bespoke package of care will ensure that all of your requirements and routines are always followed and respected, and you’ll have a personalised support plan to accompany your care. With visiting care you’ll have regular calls from our amazing carers as often as you need, from just 30 minutes per week, whereas with live-in care your carer will reside in your home with you, giving extra reassurance to you and your loved ones that you’re never alone at home.
Our customers and their loved ones think our carers are amazing for the difference they make to their lives, and we obviously agree! Our carers are the real heart of Helping Hands and we couldn’t do what we do without them, namely keeping our customers as independent as possible in the home they love and living their best life! We train our carers well so that they can look after their customers but we can’t teach them to be kind and compassionate – that has to naturally come from the heart. You and your loved ones can have full confidence in us to deliver the service we promise thanks to us being fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales too, so you know you’re always in the best hands with Helping Hands.
