What Cardiff Palliative Care Services are Available?
Palliative care is a specialised type of care which focuses on supporting people who are living with a terminal illness or life-threatening condition. A terminal diagnosis can be highly distressing for everyone concerned; palliative care is designed to improve overall quality of life by providing physical and emotional support for both the patient and their loved ones. Our Helping Hands palliative care team are fully trained to provide specialised, expert palliative home care that specifically and empathetically supports the needs of each individual person, whatever their condition and circumstances. While traditionally people may have opted to relocate to an inpatient or residential nursing home during their final years and months, an increasing number of people are now choosing to receive palliative care at home. Our superb palliative carers are able to support you in your own home as little or as much as you require as your condition progresses, no matter how straightforward or complex your needs are. Whether you need someone who will help with getting dressed, changing incontinence pads, preparing meals, running errands or cleaning the house, our carers are always willing to go above and beyond to ensure you’re as comfortable, peaceful and supported as possible.
End of Life Care Options in Cardiff
End of life care is a branch of medical care for people who are considered to be in the final months or weeks of their life, whether due to a medical condition or because of increasing fragility. The main purpose that end of life care serves is to provide people with as much dignity and comfort as possible by reducing pain, symptoms and stress. At Helping Hands, we provide end of life care to customers in the comfortable, peaceful and reassuring environment of their own home, allowing them to enjoy familiar surroundings and spend as much valuable time as possible with loved ones. Being cared for at home, rather than in a residential home or hospice, can provide you or your loved one with increased emotional support and peacefulness. Small things – such as family heirlooms, familiar sights and smells, a favourite painting or a much-loved pet – can go a long way in helping someone to feel reassured and content in the final stages of their life. Our exceptional end of life carers will do everything they can to make sure you or your loved one’s needs and wishes are being met, and that the whole family feels supported during what is often a very distressing time.
