There are millions of people living with dementia all across the globe. So, if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with the condition, then you are not alone. Many of us will be affected by dementia at some point in our lives and it is important to understand the condition and its effects. There is no known cure for dementia, but there are lots of ways to support those living with the condition. The good news is, most people diagnosed with dementia are able to maintain a good quality of life with the right care and support. At Helping Hands, we are experts in dementia care and we believe that people with dementia should continue to live the lifestyle that they want in the place they feel most comfortable.
As one of the UK’s leading home care providers, our Southampton care team has over 30 years of experience supporting people with dementia. Our fully-regulated and award-winning training programme requires rigorous training and assessments. This ensures that our carers have the skills, knowledge, and expertise to provide outstanding dementia care. Our carers also take part in regular refresher courses to broaden their skills and ensure that their knowledge remains up to date. Our services are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW), so you can have confidence in the quality of our services. We are also part of the Dementia Action Alliance which further demonstrates our commitment to improving the lives of those living with the condition.
People with dementia usually find a change of living environment extremely unsettling and stressful. Our home care services allow your loved one to remain living in the place they know and love – their home and community. Dementia home care is a popular alternative to residential care as it enables people with dementia to maintain their freedom and independence. Your loved one will receive the support they need at home, without going through the upheaval of moving to a nursing care facility.
The majority of people diagnosed with dementia need assistance as the condition progresses. Our fully-trained carers are here to provide support whenever your loved one needs it. A visiting carer can help with a wide range of activities like personal care, household chores, mobility support, and administering medication. One of our carers can also offer companionship and emotional support to your loved one. Regular social interaction offers various health benefits and should improve your loved one’s sense of wellbeing.
At Helping Hands, we have spent the last 30 years caring for people with dementia in Southampton and throughout the UK. Our carers apply their knowledge and expertise to create a home care solution that is tailored to the specific needs of your loved one. Our home care plans are fully flexible and can be customised to suit your exact requirements and preferences.
Our Southampton home carers offers two main types of care: visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care can be arranged from a few days a week. A fully-trained carer will visit your loved one’s home at agreed times to support them with daily activities and tasks. If you choose live-in care, then your loved one will receive around-the-clock support from a team of professional carers. This means you can relax knowing that your loved one will receive care whenever they need it. Every Helping Hands carer is committed to helping people with dementia live well despite the condition and enjoy the lifestyle that they want.
