Dementia care symptoms can vary significantly from person to person, and the condition is progressive, which means that people will often show different behavioural and physical changes depending on the stage of their condition. We tailor every dementia care package to each individual to ensure that your loved one is receiving the care that they need.
Helping Hands has been a leader in the home care industry for more than 30 years, and in our experience, it’s never easy to make the decision to seek care for a loved one with dementia. But we’re here to help. Because dementia is a progressive condition, it’s normal for care needs to change over time. Symptoms can be physical, emotional and cognitive, and will vary between person to person and even within the same person, from day to day.
At Helping Hands, we tailor our responsive dementia care so that we can provide the care that your loved one needs, as and when they need it. Our Salford carers are committed to making a real difference in their lives, every day, so they feel safe, comfortable and empowered to get on with the activities that are most important to them.
Dementia conditions such as Alzheimer’s pose additional, and sometimes quite complex, care needs that require experience and patience. We’ll take the time to pair your loved one with compatible, fully trained carers who truly understand how important it is to maintain a sense of routine and comfort when it matters most.
Helping Hands works hard to maintain our reputation as leading providers of exceptional quality care in the UK. All personal care services are provided by our Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered office Helping Hands West Manchester, which means we’re regularly monitored for our adherence to a strict code of practices.
Though we recruit carers from every walk of life, every one of them has received a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) certificate, a thorough background check and extensive training. Helping Hands has a genuine passion to make people’s lives easier, and we only enrol those enthusiastic and dedicated carers who share our philosophy.
Helping Hands is an expert home care, or domiciliary care, provider. We believe that we can best serve those who need us where they’re happiest – in their own homes. Elderly people living with dementia can often experience confusion or distress, and moving to a residential care facility can be needlessly traumatic. A gentler and more effective alternative is to provide support right at home, where your loved one can maintain all their familiar routines in surroundings they know and trust.
Home care is especially suited to dementia support because it’s so flexible. Our carers will fit in around your loved one’s established schedule, so they can experience a continuity of care that can be very reassuring. Whether it’s support with those everyday tasks that are a little challenging, or simply a quiet moment to share a cup of tea at the kitchen table, our carers will do what it takes to support your loved one’s ongoing wellbeing.
Your loved one is 100% unique, and we think their care plan should reflect this. At Helping Hands, we don’t offer one-size-fits-all support, but take the time to really get to know the people we help on a personal level, so we can provide care that will genuinely make a difference in their lives. Our carers are available for care calls occasionally throughout the week, multiple times within the same day, or full-time live-in care.
What’s most important is that care is tailored to support your loved one’s unique needs, day to day. This could mean a range of personal care tasks like washing and dressing for the day, help with errands around the community, or simple housework like vacuuming or getting the laundry done. We’re committed to making sure your loved one feels empowered to live the independent life they want to live, while you have peace of mind that they are well looked after.
One of our friendly customer advisors can discuss your loved one’s needs in detail, so they can be matched with carers who best fits their lifestyle, preferences, interests and unique needs.
