Palliative care is a dedicated type of care that is typically reserved for people living with a serious or terminal illness. When you or a loved one receive a terminal diagnosis, it can be a devastating blow to the whole family. Palliative care aims to provide physical and emotional support through managing symptoms, pain and stress levels, ensuring you’re able to enjoy the best possible quality of life as your condition progresses.
At Helping Hands, we offer palliative care to customers in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own homes. Being able to receive care at home, rather than moving to a residential nursing home or a hospice, means you’ll be able to stay in the place where you feel most independent, confident and secure. You’ll also get to spend time with our expert home care Cheltenham team that will design a care plan that perfectly suits your particular needs, right down to what your favourite meals are. Whether you need a live-in carer for round-the-clock support or visiting care at fixed points throughout the week, we can provide you with a fully flexible package of care that can be adapted as your condition progresses.
As your loved one approaches the end of their life, they may reach a point where they require more intensive care to help them treat their symptoms and manage their pain levels. Often, basic bodily functions such as eating, drink and toileting can become impossible to fulfil independently. Certain conditions, such as types of dementia and advanced cancer, are physically debilitating and basic bodily functions such as eating, drink and toileting can become impossible to fulfil independently.
End of life care is a branch of care designed to alleviate pain, manage symptoms and provide the best possible quality of life for your loved one during the final months and weeks of their life. After a terminal diagnosis, we all want to make sure our loved one is able to remain as peaceful, comfortable and dignified as possible, right up until the very end. With Helping Hands’ end-of-life home care, your loved one will receive all the expert physical and emotional support they require, and they’ll be able to remain in the home they love, surrounded by the possessions, memories and people they cherish.
With over 30 years of experience in providing compassionate, dedicated home care to customers across England and Wales, Helping Hands are perfectly placed to meet your palliative care needs in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of your own home. Our Cheltenham palliative care team are fully trained and equipped to design a package of care for you or your loved one that will meet all your specific needs and wishes, and are able to adapt your care provision as your condition progresses. All of our carers are selectively recruited for their empathetic approach to their care, and we couldn’t be prouder of the dedication and professionalism that they demonstrate on a daily basis – they truly are our greatest asset. For your added peace of mind, all of our care services are independently monitored and regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can be confident that we’re absolutely committed to providing only the very highest standard of care.
