Dementia care provides you with one-to-one support from an expertly-trained carer in your own home that helps you to manage the symptoms of your condition. At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing dedicated, person-centred dementia care to customers up and down the country since 1989. In that time, our one-to-one support has helped tens of thousands of people to continue living independently, comfortably and confidently in their own homes. We can support you or your loved one to live with dementia through our home care in Widnes and the surrounding area.
When a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, it can be difficult knowing when to look for care options, and which options might be best suited to them. In truth, a home carer can be an invaluable source of support for people with all types and stages of dementia – even if your loved one would simply benefit from an hour or two of support per week to help them stay on top of the housework. Having help from a carer can help to prolong your loved one’s quality of life and enable them to maintain their faculties, as their carer assists with physical and mental exercises to keep them active and engaged with the world around them. And, as the condition progresses and care needs increase, we can provide suitable physical, practical and emotional visiting and live-in care that supports the whole family as you go on this journey together.
At Helping Hands Widnes, we know that every person’s experience with dementia is completely unique. That’s why we don’t believe that a one-size-fits-all support plan is ever an appropriate approach to adopt. Rather, your local care manager will visit your loved one at home and take the time to get to know their needs and wishes, so that we can fully understand how we can best support them to continue living life on their own terms as much as possible. And, as their needs change and evolve, their carer can monitor their condition and circumstances and recommend appropriate adaptations to their support.
When you partner with our Widnes team for dementia care, you can be confident your loved one will be receiving specialist support from carers who have been specifically recruited for their kind, compassionate personalities and their committed approach to their roles. Every new carer is enrolled on our industry-leading carer training and assessment programme, where they’re equipped to provide a wide range of care services to people with varying needs, and will continue to participate in regular refresher courses so that they’re always up to date with the latest care industry standards and best practices. And, for your added peace of mind, we’re independently regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
