When you’re living with dementia the early stages may present some challenges to you, but you may find that you cope rather well and manage your day-to-day routine relatively unchanged; however for some people they may find things are a challenge right from the start. Because dementia is a life-limiting, individualised condition, everyone will find their experiences different, which is why the need for care will vary from person to person too. Dementia is caused by various diseases that effect cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer’s, Vascular, and Lewy Body dementia, to name the most common. Thanks to our more than 30 years of supporting people to live their best life at home with dementia, we really are the dementia care experts, and our home care in Windsor team will be able to support you to remain as independent as possible in the home you love.
Remaining at home for your dementia care can have many benefits to your overall wellbeing and your ability to live as well as possible with dementia. By staying in familiar surroundings such as a beloved home, which contains years of memories and mementoes, as well as beloved people and precious pets too, you’ll be more comfortable, less confused and hopefully less anxious, which can only benefit you and your loved ones. You also get to continue experiencing views that you’ve always enjoyed, a garden that you may have planted yourself and have family and friends around whenever you wish.
Enjoying life to the best of your ability will make a real difference to how well you can live with your dementia, and by choosing Helping Hands for your care at home you will be supported by dedicated and compassionate carers who won’t just be caring for you, they’ll also support your family with the emotional reality of your dementia as it progresses. It can be very hard for loved ones to witness the steady decline of a person that means the world to them, yet your carer won’t just be there for the practical care elements such as personal care and medication. Whether you choose visiting care or live-in care in Windsor, they’ll also spend time working with you on memory books, activities and crafts that you’ve always enjoyed, which in turn will benefit your overall wellbeing and help you to live your best life with dementia.
Above all else, we select our carers because they have natural qualities of compassion and kindness, meaning they are perfectly placed to care from the heart for the customers they support. We value experience but we don’t consider it everything – after all, someone can be completely new to care and just have that in-built caring nature that makes them perfect for the role. We do train them well so that they can learn the skills they’ll need, build on existing ones and gain further knowledge, and because we’re continually opening new branches across England and Wales it means when the time comes to progress their career we have the opportunities they want. It’s vital to us that we continually uphold the ethos and family values that we began our business with in 1989, which are to keep you safe, independent and comfortable in your own home for as long as possible. We do that by also stringently checking the backgrounds of the people who join us and also screening through the DBS; after all, making sure that only people who should be entering your home are doing so is vital. Our comprehensively managed services are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning you and your loved ones can have total confidence in the consistent high standards we uphold.
