Our brilliant care team are on hand for when you or a loved one require palliative care in Dartford or the surrounding area. At Helping Hands, our palliative care focuses on managing the symptoms of your condition to allow you to enjoy the best possible quality of life as you come to terms with a serious or terminal illness. Receiving palliative care at home, rather than moving to a residential care home or a hospice, allows you to have far more flexibility around your package of care and also takes away the stress of having to uproot your life. Our dedicated palliative home care is completely person-centred, meaning that your support plan will be fully tailored to your specific needs and wishes and can be adapted as your condition changes.
End of life care differs slightly from palliative care in that it is only given to people who are in the last few months or weeks of life. The primary aim of end-of-life care is to ensure that the symptoms of a person’s condition are managed, so that pain levels are kept to a minimum and the final stages of life can be experienced with dignity and comfort. There’s also a lot of focus placed on providing a high level of emotional support to everyone concerned during what can be a distressing period of time.
If you have a loved one who requires end-of-life care in Dartford or the surrounding area, our brilliant team of carers are fully trained to provide a bespoke package of end-of-life care that will meet their specific needs and wishes whilst allowing them to remain in the home that they cherish, surrounded by the people who they love. Staying at home for end-of-life care provides a platform for your loved one to receive a greater level of mental, emotional and social support, as they’ll be able to continue enjoying much-loved views, treasured memories and familiar faces. Receiving care at home also allows for a lot more flexibility when it comes to designing a care plan – whether your loved one requires 24/7 support from a live-in carer, or visiting care at several points throughout the day, our brilliant Dartford care team will be able to design a support package that is suited to your requirements and that can be adapted as your loved one’s condition progresses.
Our Dartford palliative care team are on hand to provide you with exceptional, compassionate palliative support that is fully tailored to your individual requirements. When it comes to caring for someone with a terminal illness, everybody has a different set of needs and wishes. At Helping Hands, our care is completely person-centred, which means we focus on ensuring that your physical and emotional wellbeing is at the forefront of every decision we make. We’ll take time to discuss your wishes and assess your condition before working with you to design a package of care that helps you to stay independent, confident and comfortable in the home that you love. All of our carers are hand-picked for their commitment to providing empathetic, expert care that truly makes a difference to our customers’ lives. Plus, we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, giving you full peace of mind about our total commitment to providing only the very best standards of care day in, day out.
