Our fantastic dementia care team based in Worthing is always here to support our customers living with dementia. If you or your loved one lives in the area and is living with dementia, we can help with anything from the administration of medication, running errands, to preparing healthy, nutritious meals.
With over 30 years of experience in home care, and more than half of our customers living with dementia, here at Helping Hands we have vast knowledge and experience in supporting them. We have honed our dementia care to ensure that our customers are safe and comfortable, in the familiar surroundings of their own homes, and getting the most effective dementia care possible.
We employ a person-centred philosophy, adapting the services that we provide to every individual, regardless of the type of dementia that you or your loved one is living with and the level of support that is needed.
Here at Helping Hands, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC is an organisation that has the responsibility of ensuring that care services in England are safe, effective, and of good quality.
Our Worthing care team members are friendly and professional, with good local knowledge. They also benefit from working for a national company, with the knowledge and experience that we have gained over the years.
All of our care staff are specially chosen for their abilities as well as compassionate personality. They are DBS checked, put through a thorough training course before they start working for us, and are given continuous support throughout their career. We are proud to say that we believe that we have the best dementia care teams out there.
We work closely with several leading organisations in the world of dementia – including the Dementia Action Alliance. This allows us to stay as up-to-date as possible with any developments in dementia care and ensure that we are giving the most effective support that we can.
We appreciate that being in a familiar environment, with a stable routine is central to good health for people living with dementia, and here at Helping Hands, we are here to facilitate this. Our home carers in Worthing can provide visiting care, coming to your or your loved one’s home anything from several times a week, to several times a day to enable them to stay living in their own home.
With visiting care, you or your loved one can wake up their own bed, use their own bathroom, and live in their own environment.
Regardless of your unique requirements, our Worthing carers are on hand to lend a hand. Our carers can follow complex care plans and are adaptable and flexible to change as your needs change. We understand that everybody is different, with different needs, likes, and dislikes and our home care teams can work with our customers, their families, and their care teams including GPs and social services to ensure great all-round care.
If you prefer, we can also arrange for a live-in carer to live with you or your loved one at home. They are carefully matched to their customer and can provide full-time support as well as building beautiful friendships. We also have a team of registered nurses who are able to provide clinical and medical care should you need it.
We appreciate that everybody needs time off sometimes, whether it is planned or unplanned. This is why we can also provide long or short-term respite care, at long or short notice. Our home carers in Worthing are here to make respite as easy as possible for everyone, ensuring that carers have peace of mind and can really relax.
We also offer support to the families of our customers who are living with dementia. We realise that things aren’t always easy, so we have set up a dedicated Dementia Telephone Hotline where you can get advice, as well as producing our own Dementia Care Guide.
Here at Helping Hands, we make it our business to support people living with dementia with both their physical and mental health. Our fabulous team of friendly and professional carers is always available to help out where they can.
If you are considering support for yourself or a loved one, get in touch with our dedicated team and we can discuss how we can help you. You can telephone us seven days a week, send us an email, or drop by and see us in our Worthing office.
