At Helping Hands, we really understand dementia and the ways that we can support you to live your best life possible. Living with dementia can bring challenges, but because we’ve been caring for people living with Alzheimer’s, vascular, Lewy Body and many other types of dementia for over 30 years, we are best placed to support both you and your loved ones. There’s a good chance that you may not require care at the start of your dementia journey, however as the condition progresses it really helps to have some professional care to keep you safe and supported at home. Our Stockton-on-Tees care team will be able to support you from the very first time you call them and offer expert guidance to both you and your loved ones.
Remaining in your own home for dementia care as opposed to uprooting to a care home can be beneficial for you, both emotionally and physically. By staying in familiar surroundings, you will have your emotional wellbeing supported by sights, sounds and smells that calm you and reduce anxiety, due to them being so recognisable and emotive. This may also benefit your physical wellbeing too. Whether it’s having family nearby or precious pets at your feet, staying at home to be cared for means you remain at the centre of your care journey at all times, with a bespoke package of care tailored around you.
Our dementia care services are available on both a visiting care and live-in care basis, giving you maximum flexibility of care that will ensure you get to live the life you want to at home. Our carers come to you, meaning that you just need to continue living in the home you love and let us do the rest for you. We’ll provide a personalised support plan that will contain everything you require on a daily basis, plus the extra things that make your life rounded, such as any hobbies and your cherished routines. Our carers will support you with a variety of tasks, including medication, personal care, mobility, meal planning and preparation, housework and accessing the community.
You won’t find carers more compassionate and understanding than ours and that’s not just us saying that – we get wonderful reviews sent to us every day that illustrates what a huge difference our carers make to our customers’ lives across the whole of England and Wales. We aren’t surprised though because we are careful to only select the most caring people to join Helping Hands, ensuring they share our ethos for delivering the highest quality homecare to our customers every day. We train them carefully and ensure there are always opportunities for our carers to develop their skills, so that they can apply what they’ve learnt to their customers’ care. Also, because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can have the highest confidence in us to deliver exemplary care every single day.
