Living with a serious or terminal illness can present a number of physical, emotional and social challenges. Palliative care is a dedicated branch of care that helps people with life-threatening conditions to manage their symptoms, pain and stress levels by providing physical and emotional support.
Historically, patients have moved to a residential care home or a hospice to receive the level of palliative care required for their condition. However, there has been a recent trend of more and more people choosing to instead remain at home to receive care, where they’re able to enjoy their favourite home comforts and spend more time surrounded by the people they love. Our superb carers in Bury St Edmunds are able to provide you or a loved one with specialist palliative home care that promotes your independence, confidence, dignity and peacefulness.
At Helping Hands, we provide specialised end-of-life home care that provides people with dignity, comfort and peacefulness during the precious final few months and weeks of life. We know that living with a terminal illness can be a painful, distressing experience. That’s why our end-of-life care focuses so heavily on supporting the individual concerned, both physically and emotionally, to ensure they’re able to have the best possible quality of life as the end approaches.
If you or a loved one require end-of-life care, or might require it in the near future, our friendly Bury St Edmunds care team will be more than happy to discuss your needs with you. They’ll also take the time to evaluate your condition and your circumstances to ensure you’re offered an appropriate level of care that will leave your feeling fully supported. Whether you require a live-in carer for round-the-clock assistance, a carer to visit several times throughout the day or something else, we’re able to offer flexible, bespoke packages of care that will suit your particular requirements and that can be adapted as your condition develops.
