Palliative care at home allows you to stay in the place you feel most comfortable, surrounded by people and pets in the place you love. With one-to-one support from a compassionate carer, you can have specialist palliative care support in the Exeter area while you undergo treatments and therapies which will assist you to live your very best life possible. When you have been diagnosed with a life-limiting or terminal illness you will usually embark on palliative care, some people can remain on the palliative pathway for years before their condition significantly deteriorates.
End of life care traditionally refers to the last few weeks or days of life, usually when all treatments and therapies have been exhausted and the focus is wholly on managing pain, maintaining quality of life and supporting the emotional and holistic needs of the person and their loved ones. Our Exeter team are well-placed to support anyone in the local area with their palliative or end of life care, as at Helping Hands we have been delivering the highest standards of bespoke, flexible visiting and live-in care for over 30 years.
Remaining at home for your palliative care as opposed to moving into residential care or a hospice, means that you stay in familiar and comforting surroundings, in a place full of memories, photographs and mementoes of a life well lived. Your loved ones will also be able to spend as much time with you as you would like, without being subject to visiting times or restrictive numbers being around your bed. If your beloved pets usually sit on your bed or lie at your feet then you can also have them close by, giving you emotional support and bringing comfort to both you and them. Our carers are well trained and especially chosen to work with our palliative care customers to ensure that they will be able to provide the high levels of support you and your loved ones will need. Our fully managed service is also regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can be sure of the very highest standards of care delivery at all times.
