What Essex Palliative Care Services are available?
Palliative care is the journey that you begin on when you are living with a life-limiting or terminal illness. It doesn’t however mean you are going to die soon. Palliative care is the acknowledgement that the condition or illness you’re living with won’t be ‘cured’ in the traditional sense, however you’ll still receive treatments and therapies that may well ensure you live a comfortable and pain-free life for many years to come. If you are looking for care and support in the Essex region and you’re embarking on your palliative care journey you should consider Helping Hands for your palliative care needs. Our caring and compassionate teams in Essex support many of our customers with varying conditions to ensure they get to live the most comfortable and enjoyable life possible, within the home they love and with the people and pets they adore.
End of Life Care Options in Essex
When your palliative care journey has gone much farther, which will take a different amount of time for everyone, it may be mutually decided that you’ve received as much treatment as you want or need to, and you may be moving towards the end of your life. This is the final stage of the palliative care journey and is usually considered to be the last few weeks or days. Our carers have supported so many customers right along their care journey and will support you, your family and loved ones both physically and emotionally until your life is coming to its end. Having the same small team of carers from the Essex branch nearest you can be so comforting for both you and your loved ones, as it means you’ll get to know each other well and they will really be invested in you and your care journey.
