Dementia is a common health condition that affects most people during their lives. Being diagnosed with dementia can have a huge physical and emotional impact on the person affected, along with the people who care for that person. Dementia cannot be cured, but many people continue to live independent and enriched lives with the right support. If you have been affected by dementia then you should remember that you’re not alone. At Helping Hands, we offer dedicated home dementia care support that is tailored to your specific care need. We believe that anyone with dementia can continue to live the life they want in the place they feel most comfortable – their home.
Founded in 1989, Helping Hands has built more than 30 years of experience caring for people with dementia in Southend-On-Sea and nationwide. All of our Southend-on-Sea carers are committed to award winning training, which teaches our carers to understand the physical and emotional challenges of dementia. Our carers have a deep understanding of the condition and are renowned as experts in dementia care. This means you can have confidence in the skills and expertise of our professional care team. Our goal is to help people with dementia live on their terms by providing exceptional home care.
Sometimes, a person with dementia does not require care after they have been diagnosed. That said, it is highly likely that they will require some care as the condition advances. The symptoms of dementia can make daily activities and tasks more difficult. In our experience, family members tend to become concerned for the wellbeing of a loved one with dementia, particularly if they live alone. If you are worried about the health and safety of a loved one, then we can arrange for one of our carers to step in and provide much-needed support. A visiting carer can help your loved one in many different ways. They can assist with their morning routines, run errands and do shopping, offer housekeeping services, or provide mobility support. Our home care services allow people with dementia to continue living at home, without the need to move to a residential nursing facility.
The signs and symptoms of dementia often change quickly, which can make caring for someone with the condition challenging. Most people with dementia experience a wide range of physical and behavioural health symptoms and this can make caregiving difficult. This is why it is always best to place your care needs in the hands of a dementia specialist who has received professional training in dementia care. With the support of a carer, your loved one will be able to maintain their freedom and independence and enjoy a more fulfilling life.
We are proud to be one of the UK’s leading home care providers and our carers boast unrivalled experience in dementia care. Our care team applies their industry knowledge and experience to create unique care plans that are tailored to the requirements of your loved one. We will always take the time to get to know you and treat you as an individual, with unique care needs.
Our Southend-On-Sea home care team offer two types of care: visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care starts from several days a week, although more frequent visits can be arranged based on your care requirements. A carer will visit your loved one at home (at a time that is convenient for them) and provide one-to-one support. We also provide live-in care for customers with more complex care needs. With live-in care, a team of fully-trained carers will be at your loved one’s home 24/7 to provide around-the-clock support.
Being dementia experts, we appreciate that caring for a loved one with dementia can be overwhelming at times. Our care team is here to offer support and help you and your family take back control. If you would like to start the process of arranging dementia care or have any questions, then get in touch today. Our friendly customer advisors are here to take your call 24 hours, seven days a week and they are always happy to help. You can also visit your local branch to meet the team and discuss dementia care or other home care services.
