For people who are living with dementia in the Wakefield area, our friendly, professional team of dementia carers is always here to help. We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) – an independent body that is in place in England to ensure that organisations are providing the best quality care that is possible.
Here at Helping Hands, we have been caring for people living with dementia for over 30 years. The knowledge and experience that we have acquired over this time enable us to confidently state that we provide excellent dementia care services to our customers, employing person-centred care, and supporting our customers to stay living in the familiarity and comfort of their own homes.
Our dementia care team in Wakefield is specially trained to assist our customers living with dementia both physically and psychologically, as well as helping with household duties, running errands, providing companionship – and we also offer registered nurses to provide clinical nursing-led care should you or your loved one need it.
Our dementia carers in Wakefield can offer high-quality, compassionate support for you or your loved one. We are founding members of the UKHCA (United Kingdom Home Care Association) and work closely with several organisations who are instrumental in dementia care, representing both those who are living with dementia, as well as those who care for them.
Working with organisations such as Dementia UK helps us to stay up-to-date with developments in the world of dementia care, as well as contribute the experiences that we live every day. Over half of our customers are living with some kind of dementia and this helps us all to improve the care that we offer to them.
Our experience of supporting people living with all types of dementia shows that it is important for them to stay in familiar surroundings with a robust routine as much as possible. This is why we believe that visiting you or your loved one in their own home is the best care solution. Our home care team is able to visit homes as little or often as needed.
If you prefer, we can also arrange for live-in carers to come to live with you or your loved one in your home, offering 24-hour care. Our live-in carers are carefully matched to our customers, ensuring that their skills, knowledge, and personalities suit you and your needs.
We can also arrange for respite care cover should you need it. We understand that respite is an important aspect for all carers, and our Wakefield respite care team is always on hand to fill in when they are needed. They are flexible, adaptable, can follow complex care plans, and are available both long and short-term, as well as at short-notice – or for respite planned well in advance.
We realise that every person is different, with different needs and requirements, and different likes and dislikes. This is why we offer a wide range of different care packages to you or your loved one. We can help with anything that you need, from the clinical administration of medicines to the preparation of healthy meals, to assistance with getting out and about.
Our team of home carers in Wakefield are able to adapt the services that it provides according to what is needed, especially as conditions develop over time.
We aim to provide services to our customers living with dementia, taking the strain off families, and allowing the time that is spent together to be high quality and enjoyable.
