Palliative care is a type of care for people living with a serious or terminal illness. Our brilliant Blackburn care team are trained to provide expert palliative care at home for people with a wide range of conditions, including types of dementia and advanced cancer.
Receiving palliative care at home, rather than uprooting to a residential nursing home or hospice, can help you or your loved one to feel more secure, independent and emotionally supported. You’ll have much more flexibility over your care plan, with the ability to personalise things like care times, meals and bed times. Our palliative carers in Blackburn are able to support you around your home in any way you need, including assistance with bathing and toileting, support with pain management, continence care, mobility assistance, running errands and so much more.
When a loved one with a terminal illness is approaching the final months and weeks of life, it’s likely that they’ll require more intensive care to help them manage the pain and symptoms caused by their condition. End of life care is a branch of care that is dedicated to providing patients with the best possible quality of life as the end approaches, and ensuring that everyone feels completely supported every step of the way.
At Helping Hands, we specialise in person-centred end-of-life care at home. This means that if a loved one requires care, they’ll be able to remain in the house that they love, surrounded by fond memories and familiar furnishings, while they receive all the physical and emotional support that their condition requires. Our end-of-life care is completely tailored to their specific needs and wishes, and focuses on ensuring they’re able to experience dignity and peacefulness in the last stages of life.
Our Blackburn care team are on hand to provide all your palliative care needs. With over 30 years of experience in providing transformative home care to thousands of people across England and Wales, we at Helping Hands have all the experience and expertise required to know how to give you the support you need to manage your symptoms and maintain as much independence and normality as possible as you learn to live with your condition. All of our brilliant carers are fully background-checked, and have been specifically recruited for their empathy, dedication and desire to provide only the very best person-centred care. Every carer is enrolled on our award-winning training when they join the team, and continues to receive regular refresher courses to ensure they’re constantly up to date with the latest best practices and industry standards. Plus we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, giving you peace of mind that all of our care provision will be of a consistently high standard.
