Palliative care focuses on providing physical and emotional support to people living with terminal illnesses. The main goal of palliative care is to ensure a better of quality of life by alleviating pain, relieving symptoms and reducing stress, and is often extended to loved ones who might also be affected by what can be a particularly distressing time.
At Helping Hands, we have extensive experience in providing compassionate, person-centred palliative care to people in the comfortable, reassuring surroundings of their own home. Our palliative care focuses on ensuring you or your loved one are as comfortable, independent and dignified as possible by supporting you in whatever way you need around the house. Whether you just need someone popping in a couple of times a day or a live-in carer for full-time assistance, we’re able to offer you a flexible, personalised care plan to suit your specific needs and wishes and give you just as much support as you’d receive in a residential care home. And, as your condition progresses, our superb care team can work with your or your loved ones to adapt your package of care accordingly.
End of life care plays an important role in the final few months and weeks of a person’s life. People living with a terminal illness such as dementia or advanced cancer will almost always require a high level of care, especially as the condition progresses. End of life care is designed to relieve pain, reduce symptoms and provide dignity, emotional support and physical support to those living through the final stages of a terminal illness. A terminal illness can also be greatly distressing for friends and family, so at Helping Hands we take a very holistic approach to end of life care because we want to ensure that everyone who needs support receives it. Our end of life home care focuses on increasing comfort and peacefulness whilst reducing pain and confusion. Receiving care at home gives you much more control over your care provision, as well as allowing you to spend as much precious time with loved ones as possible. Our brilliant Helping Hands end of life carers are trained to provide dedicated, compassionate care for people with a wide range of conditions, both straightforward and complex.
