There are more than one hundred types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease and it can affect people in different ways. This can include memory loss, difficulty with concentration and changes in mood. These symptoms are usually small to begin with, but with time they can have a huge impact on your day-to-day life.
However, that doesn’t mean you can’t live life the way you want. Our home care in Wigan experts specialise in dementia care and can provide you with the right level of care that you require, allowing you to continue living an independent and content lifestyle, for as long as you can.
Being cared for at home is becoming a popular option for families in the UK and we’re not surprised, as there are so many benefits to remaining at home. You are in an environment that you love and are familiar with. You’re surrounded by your loved loves, pets and home comforts such as your bed and favourite chair. Being around familiar things is important, especially if you are living with dementia, as changes to your routine and lifestyle can impact your symptoms.
You’ll also be able to maintain your independence and do things you like when you want, as our care packages are fully tailored to you and your needs. So, you will have full control over your care journey.
Dementia is known as a progressive condition, which means your symptoms can get worse over time, which is why our care plans are bespoke and flexible to your needs. Our care plans are reviewed and assessed regularly by our carers, and if any changes need to be made – no matter how big or small – this can be arranged for you. We make sure we put your needs first.
Our carers are trained to deliver the support you need to ensure you can live life to the fullest. Whether you need help with getting ready in the morning or preparing breakfast and dinner, our carers can visit you several times a week with our visiting care package. Alternatively, you can have live in care in Wigan to support you 24-hours a day.
Our carers work hard to provide the best possible care you deserve. We understand it isn’t always easy having someone new come into your home. That’s why, we make sure we take time to get to know you and match you with a carer that meets your requirements and shares the same interests as you.
Before joining Helping Hands, individuals must go through a strict background check – only 2% of the people who apply get through – so you know you will be in good hands. All our carers go through an extensive training programme and keep their skills updated via refresher courses. For added reassurance, we are monitored by the care industry’s regulated bodies, the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales. This means our services are regularly inspected to ensure we provide a well-responsive, empathetic and trustworthy care service.
