Palliative care is a branch of care that is generally reserved for people living with a progressive or terminal condition. The length of time for which palliative care is required can vary between a few weeks and a number of years, depending on the severity of the patient’s condition and the rate at which it develops. Our Chester care team are fully trained and equipped to provide you or your loved one with empathetic, specialist palliative care in your own home.
We’ve got over 30 years’ experience in helping people to remain independent, confident and secure at home, so it’s safe to say we’re experts in the care industry. When you partner with Helping Hands for palliative care, you’ll receive person-centred, one-to-one care that focuses on helping you manage your condition and giving you the best possible quality of life.
If your loved one is living with a progressive condition and is approaching the final months or weeks of life, they might require end-of-life care. End of life care is specialist care that allows people to spend their final weeks with as much dignity and comfort as possible by helping them to manage their symptoms and alleviate pain. We know that this is a period of time that can be highly distressing for both the person concerned and their loved ones, so our end-of-life care focuses on providing emotional and mental support to the family as well as all the compassionate, expert care that your loved one deserves. Being able to stay at home to receive end-of-life care can be a source of great reassurance to your loved one, as they’ll be surrounded by the comforting sight of familiar furnishings and views – as well as being able to spend more time with friends and family.
Our Helping Hands Chester branch comprises of a wonderful team of carers who truly are the heart and soul of our organisation. They go above and beyond every day to ensure our customers receive the empathetic, expert care that they expect from Helping Hands, and we really believe they’re the very best at what they do. We selectively recruit our carers based on their empathetic personalities and their dedicated approach to their roles, and we also perform rigorous background checks to ensure they’ll be a great fit for us and for you.
When they start with us, every carer receives our award-winning training and will continue to enrol in regular refresher courses which keep them up to date with the latest best care practices and industry standards. And, to give you total peace of mind, we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know our care will always be of a very high standard.
