If you’re diagnosed with a life-limiting condition, you will embark on a journey of palliative care that will be focussed on keeping you comfortable and pain-free for as long as possible. It’s understandable that you and your loved ones will have many questions and concerns after diagnosis, especially if treatments have been undertaken and concluded, and our local expert team providing home care in Barnsley can advise you accordingly.
Palliative care focusses on promoting your wellbeing, both physically and emotionally, and by choosing Helping Hands to provide your home care, will be able to remain in the place that means the most to you. Traditionally, palliative care took place in hospital, a hospice, or care home, yet by remaining at home you can be around loved ones and precious pets for as long as possible.
By tailoring your package of care around you and your individual needs, you will always be at the centre of your palliative care journey. It’s vital that you have a wider care team who are committed to your consistent care, and our carers will work seamlessly with the other people who are taking care of you. It’s important to think about how you want your palliative care to progress and talk about it with your loved ones if you want them to be involved. Our care experts will help you have those difficult conversations, if necessary, and we’ll make sure your support plan contains everything necessary to keep you as comfortable as possible at home.
Our carers across Barnsley are amazing and will go above and beyond every single day to ensure you live as well as possible at home.
