When receiving a diagnosis of dementia, it can be upsetting and unsettling for the person diagnosed, as well as their family and friends. However, it can also be a relief after a long period of worry and concern about someone’s memory decreasing in reliability and other associated symptoms. You may have initially noticed a loved one struggling to recall people and places that were previously familiar, or perhaps it’s to do with times of day or confusion over whether they’ve eaten or taken medication. Regardless of how it manifests, you may find that you are struggling to provide the level of care that your loved one requires as their condition progresses, and that’s where your local, friendly Helping Hands Home Care in Sheffield branch can help.
The feelings of confusion and anxiety that dementia inevitably causes can be intensified if a person isn’t in a familiar place, surrounded by their own things, which is why dementia home care can be the best thing. Being in their own home, with photographs and objects that they’ve seen every day for years can help to keep a sense of order in their life, especially if they still have loved ones at home who they wouldn’t want to be separated from. Helping Hands has been supporting people living with dementia in their own homes for over 30 years and our friendly team in Sheffield can tell you how we can help. Perhaps you want support with housework, light gardening, meal preparation and companionship, or a trip to Meadowhall to do some essential shopping. Whichever it is, the Sheffield team are looking forward to hearing from you. We also offer live in care in Sheffield.
It’s understandable that inviting someone you don’t know into your loved one’s home to care for them, whether on a visiting basis or live-in, can be daunting. That’s why our branch team in Sheffield will be with you every step of the way to design and build a care package that is person centred and individualised to the customer’s own needs. Helping Hands offer flexible, tailored care packages, that focus on dedicated one-to-one support, from an hour a week up to 24-hour live-in care. All our carers work from a personalised support plan that will have been put together by the branch team in conjunction with the customer’s preferences and needs, meaning at all times they stay as independent as possible and fully in control of their own life and care journey. We are waiting to hear how we can support you, so please contact the Sheffield team for more information and a convenient appointment at your home.
Helping Hands is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England, so you can be confident that you are receiving high quality carers to support you or your loved ones. In addition to this, all Helping Hands carers go through a rigorous training programme covering manual handling, medication administration, first aid & CPR, plus much more such as safeguarding and dementia care, so are ready to support their customer with every aspect of their care journey, whether physically, emotionally or both. This will help to take the pressure off you and your family to care for your loved-one, meaning you can concentrate on spending quality time together and enjoying special days.
