If you or a loved one are living with a terminal illness, you may wish to consider receiving palliative care. During what can be a particularly distressing time for everyone involved, expert support can go a long way in ensuring a terminal illness doesn’t have to be completely miserable. Palliative care aims to reduce the negative effects of any symptoms you may be experiencing as a result of your condition, and allow you to be as comfortable, sociable and dignified as circumstances allow. At Helping Hands, we’re able to offer dedicated, person-centred palliative home care that gives you the best possible quality of life. Our palliative home care service is fully flexible, and is tailored to you or your loved one’s particular requirements and wishes – regardless of how simple or complicated they might be. Our superb carers are fully trained to assist you around the house as little or as much as you require – whether you need someone to run errands for you, help you with medication, support you with pain management or more. And, as your condition progresses, your care provision can be adapted to ensure it remains suitable for your needs.
End of life care is specialised medical care that is designed to assist someone in the final months and weeks of their life. If your loved one has an advanced terminal illness, they will almost certainly have complex care requirements that will need to be constantly monitored. At Helping Hands, our end of life home care service focuses on providing your loved one with emotional and physical support to match their condition, ensuring they can have as much dignity, comfort and peacefulness as possible as the end nears. Our superb carers are trained to provide a level of support that alleviates pain, manages symptoms and reduces stress levels, as well as ensuring family members feel suitably supported and reassured. Staying at home to receive end of life care, rather than moving to a nursing home or hospice, can help your loved one to feel supported and at ease with the care journey, and can provide a dignified resting place for them, surrounded by familiar furnishings, possessions and people.
