Our expert dementia care team based in Sunderland are always on-hand to give you or your loved one the care that you need. We have over 30 years of experience in supporting people who are living with dementia of all types and have used this experience to finely tune the services that we can provide to make us leaders in our industry.
Whether you are looking for visiting carers who can attend as often as is required, live-in carers who can offer 24-hour support, or nurse-led care, we have a range of different care packages that can be tailored to suit your every need.
Our Sunderland carers can provide excellent dementia care services ranging from assistance in taking our customers out both socially and to medical appointments, running errands, or light domestic duties such as housework or the cooking of healthy meals. Our dementia care staff are focussed on enabling those people who are living with dementia to stay in the familiarity of their own homes, in comfort and safety, and out of residential care.
We take our care responsibilities very seriously, here at Helping Hands, and are regulated by independent care regulators – the Care Quality Commission. We also provide specialist dementia care training to our care staff.
Our Sunderland home care team members have been selected especially for their high level of ability and personable and friendly nature. We can also provide respite care if you are in need of it. Our carers can follow detailed care plans, are easily adaptable, and can be a friendly and familiar face for you or your loved one.
We are committed to offering the most up-to-date, effective care to people who are living with dementia and work closely with organisations who are leaders in understanding dementia care – and representing those who live with the condition as well as those who care for them.
Our person-centred care principles are based on providing the support that is needed for our customers to be able to stay living in their own homes and out of residential care. For those who are living with dementia, being in familiar surroundings, with a strong routine and consistent life is key to effective care, and this is why we do all that we can to make this happen.
Our Sunderland home care specialists can visit you or your loved one’s home as little or often as necessary, and we also offer full-time, live-in care if this is preferable. Our care team is able to adapt according to your or your loved one’s established routines and offer any support that is needed.
Our specially chosen dementia care team is put through rigorous training before they begin to work for us to ensure that they meet the high standards that we expect from them, and they are all DBS checked. We also provide 24-hour, 7-days a week support for our care staff, ensuring that they are both being looked after themselves, and providing our customers with the best service possible.
We understand that every person is different, with different wants and needs, so we ensure that we accommodate your unique circumstances into the care package that we provide to you. We are also able to tailor the support that our care teams are providing over time as your needs change.
We are here to not just offer help with everyday tasks, but we also train our dementia care staff to assist our customers with both their psychological and physical health. There is more information available about this in our comprehensive dementia guide.
Here at Helping Hands, we also appreciate the challenges faced by the families and loved ones of those who are living with dementia and this is why we can also offer support through our dementia helpline, where advice can be given by our expert dementia care specialists.
