When you receive a diagnosis of dementia it’s understandable that you and your loved ones are going to have many questions that you want to be answered. While it can be a relief to finally know more about what you’re living with and what to expect over the coming months, it will also probably make you wonder about whether you’re going to need care and if so, who is going to provide it. When the time comes for professional support, you’ll need a company that have over 30 years of experience in supporting people living with dementia in their own homes. All of our dedicated staff and carers are knowledgeable about dementia and our Weymouth care team are no exception.
Having dementia care at home, as opposed to in a care home, means that you’ll be able to stay around the people, pets and possessions that mean the world to you, while living in familiar surroundings that may help to reduce your levels of confusion and subsequent anxiety. Having the same small group of carers coming to you every day will mean you have less faces to process, which is something else that can’t be guaranteed in a care home.
With dementia care at home, you get a dedicated visiting care or live-in-care service delivered by compassionate carers who understand how best to help you. Our bespoke packages of care will ensure that you are always at the centre of your care journey and the flexibility with which we arrange your care will make sure that it changes as your needs do. We’ll provide a personalised support plan that will accompany your care and that will mean your carers will always have the information they need to keep your routine respected at all times. Whichever service you choose you’ll always have the best standards of care, whether your carers are undertaking your personal care, medication, meal preparation, housework or something entirely different.
Our carers are the centre of our world because they put you at the centre of theirs. Our carers regularly go above and beyond to ensure that your care is carried out to the highest possible standards, which is why we only choose the most naturally caring and empathetic people to become Helping Hands carers. We train them carefully when they start with us and we thoroughly check their backgrounds so that you can be happy about who’s coming into your home. Finally, we are fully accredited by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales so that you and your loved ones always know we deliver consistently high standards of care.
