When you have been diagnosed with a life-limiting or terminal illness you will embark on a pathway of care and treatment that, while not expected to cure your condition, it will certainly enable you to live the best quality of life you are able to for as long as possible. A focus will be on supporting your holistic needs, such as your social, spiritual and emotional needs, as well as your physical ones. In addition, it is recognised during palliative care that your loved ones may also need emotional support to deal with what is a difficult time for them as well. Helping Hands have been supporting our customers in and around the Bournemouth area to remain in the home they love whilst on their palliative pathway for over 30 years. Our compassionate carers can come to you on either a visiting or live-in basis, working seamlessly with your wider team of healthcare professionals that may include your GP and community nurse, all of whom are focussed on ensuring you live your best quality possible of life at all times.
As your palliative pathway progresses and your treatments and therapies are concluded, it will become clear how quickly your condition will start to deteriorate. End of life is sometimes considered the last year of a person’s life, but more generally it is felt to be the last few weeks and days. The home care Bournemouth team have been supporting customers in the area to access end of life care at home since 1989, and we pride ourselves on supporting our customers to pass away exactly as they would want, with dignity, in comfort and surrounded by their loved ones. Whether you want to see your favourite view from the window, sit in your garden and watch your grandchildren play or feel your beloved pets sitting on your bed with you, spending your last few days at home in familiar and comfortable surroundings is the choice of so many of our customers, and it’s easy to see why.
Our Bournemouth team are professional, caring and empathetic and will support you and your loved ones expertly through what is a very difficult time. By remaining in your own home for your palliative and end of life care you are enabling yourself to be in the place you love, rather than having to relocate to somewhere unfamiliar at such a vulnerable time of your life. Our fully managed home care services will ensure that you always receive the most excellent standards of care at all times, and thanks to our regulation by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can have the fullest confidence in our pedigree for delivering the best quality care possible.
Arranging care at home in the Bournemouth area is as easy as calling our friendly customer care team and discussing your care options. They’re available seven days a week for your convenience, or alternatively, contact us via our website and we’ll be happy to call you back.
