If you know someone who has been diagnosed with dementia then you’re not alone. There are roughly 850,000 people diagnosed with the condition in the UK. Sadly, the condition is incurable and the associated symptoms typically advance over time. However, lots can be done to help people with dementia and ensure that they can continue to live a safe and fulfilling life. At Helping Hands, we are dementia care specialists and our carers have over 30 years of experience supporting people with dementia. We believe that quality care is fundamental to maintaining a good quality of life with dementia. Our motto is that everyone with dementia can maintain a good quality of life with the correct care and support. Our carers can help you and your family take back control and live well, despite the challenges of dementia.
Our Shipley care team has been supporting people in the local area for the past 30 years. Helping Hands carers have outstanding care skills and knowledge of dementia care as a result of our award-winning training. This means you can have confidence that your loved one is in very safe hands. Most of our carers choose to complete additional training courses and assessments to expand their skills and knowledge. When you choose Helping Hands, you can enjoy the comfort of knowing that your loved one will receive the highest standards of care. Our care team is dedicated to helping people with dementia live well despite the condition.
Some people do not require any additional care during the early stages of dementia. However, most people need some level of care as the condition advances. You might notice that a loved one starts to find their daily activities more strenuous. If this is the care, then we can arrange for a professional carer to visit your loved one at home and provide assistance. One of our Shipley home carers can support a wide range of tasks and activities. This may include assisting with their morning routines, managing medication, preparing healthy meals, or running errands. The support of a carer will enable your loved one to continue living at home while maintaining their independence.
People with dementia tend to find a change of routine and scenery unsettling and stressful. This is the reason why so many families are deciding to support their loves ones with home care services, rather than moving them to a residential care facility. Our home care services provide an excellent alternative to residential care. With our help, your loved one can remain living in the place they know and love, and avoid the stress of moving out of their beloved home.
We apply our knowledge and expertise in the care industry to create personalised care solutions that are tailored to your specific requirements. We understand that everyone is different and we will always treat you as an individual, with unique care needs. All of our home care plans are flexible and can be customised to match the needs and preferences of your loved one. We offer two main types of care – visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care starts from several days a week and we can arrange more regular visits based on the care needs of your loved one. We can also arrange full-time live-in care if your loved one has more intensive care needs. With live-in care, your loved one will receive 24/7 assistance from a team of fully-trained carers. You can feel safe in the knowledge that your loved one will receive support whenever they need it.
We know just how difficult it can be to have a loved one diagnosed with dementia. Our carers understand the challenges of the condition and we are here to support you in any way we can. Our carers are experts in the field of dementia care and committed to providing quality home care. If you would like to discuss our dementia care services, then please give us a call.
