We offer high-quality, professional, and friendly dementia care for people who are living in or around the town of Wantage. Here at Helping Hands, we have more than 30 years’ experience in home care for people including those who are living with dementia. We have a team of knowledgeable, compassionate carers who can assist you or your loved one with anything from the administration of medication to help with running errands.
Our Wantage carers staff are trained specially to have the skills and knowledge to provide reliable and effective support with a person-centred approach. We aim to enable our customers to stay living in the homes that they know and love through our provision of visiting care services or live-in care support, enabling them to stay out of residential care and where we believe that most people are best off.
Helping Hands is fully regulated by the independent body, the CQC (Care Quality Commission). Their role is to ensure that care companies like us provide safe, effective, and high-quality care. We are industry leaders in supporting people who are living with dementia of all types, and we make it our business to stay as up-to-date as possible with any developments in the understanding of dementia.
We take our responsibilities to those who are living with dementia very seriously, with over half of our customers having the condition. Here at Helping Hands, we work together with a number of leading dementia organisations in the UK, that work to understand and improve the lives of people living with dementia and their carers.
This gives us the confidence to say that we offer excellent support to all of our customers living with dementia, using the latest knowledge and most up-to-date techniques. Our work with organisations such as Dementia Action Alliance allows us to contribute to providing the best dementia care for people around the country, as well as learn from their knowledge and expertise.
Our specialist home carers in Wantage are professional and knowledgeable, a friendly face – a friend as well as a carer.
Through our years of experience in supporting our customers who are living with dementia, we have found that for most people, it is best for them to stay living in their own homes. This ensures that you or your loved one is living in a familiar environment, surrounded by the things that they know and love, and able to maintain strong routines. This all means a comfortable and safe life for people living with dementia.
This is why here at Helping Hands, we believe that home care is the best option for many people. Our fantastic team of dementia care staff based in Wantage can visit from a few days a week. If you feel that it would be easier, we could also arrange for live-in care, whereby a carer who is specially selected to match your or your loved one’s personality would live-in, providing 24-hour support.
We can also provide clinical nursing-led support for our customers who are in need of this.
Regardless of your specific needs – whether it is that you are looking for someone who can help you with light housework, someone who can help your loved one to get out and about, or just someone who can pop round for a cup of tea, our expert, friendly care team in on hand.
We understand how important it is for all of our customers to be treated as individual people, each with their own needs, necessities, preferences, likes, and dislikes. This is why we offer a range of different care packages, with flexibility over what we’re doing, when, and by whom.
We can tailor our care services according to you or your loved one’s requirements, and our Wantage care team is always on-hand to provide the best care package for you.
We can also provide expert respite care cover for those that need it. Our dementia care team can follow care plans to the letter and are kind, friendly, and personable, adapting easily to your or your loved one’s routines.
We specially select our dementia care team, choosing only those who have the ability and personality to provide excellent, knowledgeable care. We confidently boast that we have amongst the country’s best home carers, and we never use agency care staff. We also put all of our care staff through a DBS check and thorough training course before they start to work for us.
If you or your loved one is living in the Wantage area and is living with dementia, our very capable care team are always here to help. Regardless of your situation, get in touch with us to see how we can help to support you by telephoning, emailing, or dropping by for a chat.
