Helping Hands

Using their 26 years of expertise and working in conjunction with Dementia UK, Helping Hands Home-care created a Dementia toolkit with tools and activities to reassure, reduce anxiety and help those with Dementia and their support network.

 The pack includes:

 Life Story Work

 The Life Story section of the pack is a rewarding activity where families are encouraged to create memory boxes, pictures, DVD’s or collages about the different stages of the person's life to help form discussion points and spark memory evoking conversations.

 Visual Planners

 The Helping Hand’s visual planners are like visual diaries to help those with Dementia remember the key activities they have participated in throughout the week. These come in either a simple planner form or blank cards that can be personalised with their own image.

 Carer Cards

Carer cards are a simple sheet with those involved in the primary care of your loved one such as carers, family or GPs written on them. They are visual reminders that may help reduce anxiety around appointments or changeover in care. Helping Hand’s flashcards also help identify rooms and potential hazards in the home.
