When you are living with a life-limiting or terminal condition you may hear the word ‘palliative’ mentioned regularly, as this is the programme of therapies and treatments that you may embark on as time progresses. While not a cure for the condition you’re living with, palliative care treatments focus on helping you to live comfortably and pain-free, with an emphasis on holistic care, therefore ensuring a ‘whole person’ approach. Our dedicated home care Bromley team will support you on your palliative care journey in the comfort of your own home, as well as accompany you on days out, to places you enjoy visiting and to appointments.
As your palliative care journey draws to a close and you’re considered to be at the end of your life, you may well feel that you don’t want to go into a hospital or a hospice, but rather stay at home and spend your final days in comforting and familiar surroundings. Your treatment programme may have been exhausted and the focus will be on strictly keeping you comfortable and pain-free, but at the same time we will still be engaging with you to ensure your independence is promoted and your dignity protected at all times.
By choosing to have your palliative care at home, you will feel the personal nature of your care experience, as we always keep you at the centre of your care journey. Because Helping Hands have been delivering exemplary care for our customers at home since 1989, we are experienced in many different conditions, such as dementia, Parkinson’s, MND, and cancer. We deliver care on both a visiting care and live in care basis, making sure that your bespoke package of care is flexible to your changing needs and follows the routine you prefer.
We can be confident that our amazing carers will deliver exactly what you need because we only employ people who share our passion for delivering personalised, compassionate care at home, and have natural caring qualities. We also ensure that our carers are well trained in every element that they will need to provide our customers with the personalised care they expect and build on the skills of our experienced carers to make sure they feel appreciated and that their expertise is recognised. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which is another example of how our standards eclipse other homecare providers.
