The primary objective of palliative care is to improve quality of life for people who are living with a terminal illness. A terminal diagnosis can present a number of challenges, whether physical, emotional or social, both for the person receiving the diagnosis and those close to them. Palliative care focuses on alleviating symptoms and helping people to be as pain-free, comfortable and dignified as possible.
In the UK, people often opt to relocate to a residential care home to receive full-time palliative care. However, in recent years there’s been a trend of more and more people choosing to instead remain at home and partner with a home care provider for palliative care. At Helping Hands, we have over 30 years’ experience in delivering specialist, expert home care to people living with a wide range of conditions. Our superb care team in Bradford are fully trained and equipped to support your or your loved one with a flexible, dedicated palliative care package that is completely tailored to your individual requirements and wishes, and can be adapted as your condition progresses. Whether you just initially need a bit of extra help around the house, or require more specific assistance with things such as continence care, administering medication and support with pain management, our empathetic carers are always completely committed to going the extra mile to ensure you’re as comfortable and peaceful as can be.
When a loved one is approaching the last few weeks or months of their life, coping with pain, stress and emotions can be extremely difficult for everyone concerned. End of life care is designed to reduce those unwanted symptoms, as well as provide dignity and peacefulness, giving your loved one and those close to them as much comfort and reassurance as possible in the precious time they have left. Helping Hands are specialists in providing end of life care to people in their own home, where they feel supported and dignified and are able to spend as much time as possible with the people they love. The familiarity of a home environment can play a significant role in helping someone with a terminal illness to feel emotionally secure and reducing stress levels. Receiving end of life care at home can also give you a lot more flexibility around what type of care your loved one receives, who cares for them, and how often they receive care. Our empathetic carers are able to offer very flexible end of life care that’s completely tailored to your wishes and requirements. Whether you need regular visiting care or a live-in carer, our private carers will take the time to discuss your loved one’s needs and offer a package of care that suits them.
