With over half of our customers here at Helping Hands living with some sort of dementia and over 30 years caring for them, we consider ourselves to have an excellent, in-depth understanding of what is needed for high-quality dementia care. If you or your loved one is in the Wimbledon area and is looking for experienced, professional dementia support, then our team of carers is always here for you.
Whether you need someone who can help with the administration of medicines, running errands and taking you or your loved one to medical appointments, company and a chat, or light housework, our Wimbledon carers can help. Here at Helping Hands, we have used the last 30 years to hone our skills, boost our understanding, and can confidently boast that we offer excellent dementia support.
The support that we provide to our customers who are living with dementia is person-centred, meaning that they get support perfectly tailored to their wants and needs. Our home care team will visit your or your loved one’s home as little or often as required, according to your specific circumstances. The team members are friendly yet professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and trained to be able to support all of our customers living with dementia, regardless of the type of dementia.
We choose our carers for both their abilities and personalities, ensuring that we only have the best. Our home carer in Wimbledon carers have all passed DBS checks and a thorough training course before they start to work for us, and they are also given 24 hour, 7 day a week support. Here at Helping Hands, we are confident that we have amongst the best dementia care staff out there.
We place a great deal of importance on ensuring that we are providing exemplary support for people who are living with dementia and work closely with organisations such as Dementia Action Alliance. These organisations are leaders in understanding dementia and the challenges faced by those living with the condition as well as their carers.
Through our years of experience and close working with prominent organisations in the world of dementia, we have come to understand how important it is for people living with the condition to be in an environment that is familiar to them, where they feel safe and comfortable and where they can have a stable routine. We believe that for most people, this is in the comfort of their own home, and our care team in Wimbledon is on hand to facilitate this.
Our visiting care team can come to your or your loved one’s home for as little as 30 minutes each week, or as many visits per day as you need. If you would prefer, we can arrange for a live-in care in Wimbledon carer to live at home with you or your loved one, providing full-time care, having been specially matched to ensure that you get on well.
We consider ourselves to be there to make life easier for our customers and their loved ones. With our help, there is more time for loved ones to spend time together doing enjoyable things, and we also offer support for the families of people living with dementia.
We appreciate how important it is for all of our customers to be supported in the best way for them. Everybody is different, with different needs and requirements – and likes and dislikes. This is why the care packages that we provide to our customers living with dementia are flexible and can be tailored to suit your specific needs. They can also be adapted over time to accommodate changes in your requirements.
In addition to the visiting care that we can offer, we can also arrange for nursing-led care if it is needed. Our team of registered nurses in Wimbledon can assist with any clinical support that is needed, and in conjunction with care teams including GPs, occupational therapists, and social services.
Having some time for respite is important for all carers. Our Wimbledon dementia care team is available to fill-in when it is needed. We appreciate that you cannot always plan respite a long time in advance, so our respite care team is on hand both at short notice or for planned respite. We can cover short or long-term respite, and our friendly carers are able to follow complex care plans and instantly make our customers feel at ease.
We are regulated fully by the CQC (Care Quality Commission) who ensures that we are providing safe and effective services and help us to maintain the very high standards that we expect of ourselves.
