Dementia Care

At Hull Homecare, we have provided care for Dementia customers for 10 years.

During this time we’ve developed a real understanding of the needs of people affected by the illness. Our highly-trained carers know about the different types and stages of the condition, and they have experience in helping people and their families cope with the challenges that Dementia care brings on a daily basis.

We are absolutely determined to help people live well with the illness – caring for people in their own homes in safety and comfort is our main aim.

There is always so much to learn about the illness. So, we continue to train and work closely with organisations, such as Dementia UK to develop our training programmes, enabling us to better provide help for our customers, as well as on-going support for carers.

Staff Call UK Ltd – Person Centred Care

Coming to terms with this illness is hard for both those affected by it and their loved ones. Calling on support for a loved one is one of the toughest decisions you’ll find yourself faced with in life. Many find the idea of inviting someone new into the home very worrying.

That’s why we believe in providing our support through the entire process. Our friendly team of care advisors will talk you through all elements of our person centred care services.

When we provide Dementia Homecare, we see our customers for what they are – people with emotions, feelings, likes and dislikes. Each person is different. And therefore there’s no one way of providing help and support.

Our carers are enthusiastic and committed to caring for someone with Dementia, helping them to live comfortably within the environment they’re most familiar with – their own homes.

That’s because we recognise that the homes of our customers aren’t just buildings. They’re treasure troves, hosting decades’ worth of cherished memories. And when caring for someone with Dementia, this continuity and consistency is absolutely vital.

Why Choose Our Dementia Carers?

There are many different types of this illness – over a hundred in fact. In more than 10 years, we’ve provided live-in support for people affected by Alzheimer’s, Frontal Temporal (also known as Picks), Lewy Body, Vascular, and many more.

Before joining the team at Staff Call UK Ltd, each of our carers goes through a rigorous training programme. They go through training at our in-house training centre, as well as a program developed alongside Dementia UK. It’s here they learn to deal with the challenges of caring for someone with this illness.

Carers have contact with our Dementia lead specialist, at all times. We also encourage carers and our customers’ families to call the Staff Call UK Ltd’s helpline if they have any questions whatsoever.

With our home care services, we can help with daily household tasks, like preparing meals, cleaning and running errands, as well as help with medication. However, as well as providing nursing care for Dementia patients, our friendly carers also provide fulltime companionship. They love nothing more than to play a board game, chat over a cup of tea, or go for a stroll in the park with the people they look after.

It’s this warm people-centric approach that we’ve become known for.

Unlike many home care agencies, we do not rotate our live-in carers. They’ll go into the home of a customer to provide Dementia care for a number of weeks, before taking a break. This allows them to bond and build up a relationship with the people they’re looking after.

Some of our Dementia carers have worked with their customers for years. And if a carer happens to fall ill, we will ensure that there’s always another qualified professional to step in to temporarily take their place. This way you can rest assured that your loved ones will never go without.

If you’re considering Dementia live-in care, you can rely on our carers to deliver their support always to the highest possible standards.
