Palliative care is a specialised type of care for people living with a progressive or life-limiting condition, such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease or dementia. It can be an emotional and difficult time for you and your loved ones, however, this doesn’t mean your life is coming to an end, it can be months or even years before you reach that stage. It all depends on the severity of your condition.
At Helping Hands, we have been supporting thousands of families in their own homes for more than 30 years. With palliative care from our Ely care team, you will receive therapies and treatments to help manage your symptoms. We promise to provide you with exceptional person-centred care and ensure you live life on your terms.
At some point, your condition may not respond to certain treatments and it may be difficult to cure it, which is when End of life care is needed – the conclusion of palliative care. End of life care allows you to pass away with dignity and respect in the place you feel safe and love most – home
Our care team in Ely, focuses on making you feel comfortable and at peace, providing you with pain-free and holistic care. Spending your final moments at home allows you to be close to your loved ones, cherished possessions and special memories. Our wonderful carers can also support your loved ones with household chores, personal care and grocery shopping, so they can focus on the things that matter most.
We can offer palliative care for as little as 30 minutes a week or longer with our visiting care package. Alternatively, if you need constant support through the day and night, then live-in care may be a better option. Whatever package you choose, we will ensure your final wishes are respected and fulfilled.
