Palliative care is the journey you begin when you’re diagnosed with a life-limiting condition, and while this can make many people’s thoughts turn to the end, in reality, the palliative care journey can last for years in some cases. With Helping Hands at your disposal, you will be offered treatments and therapies where possible throughout your palliative care journey with a view to making sure you live your best quality of life for as long as possible. When the conversation turns to care and how you will receive it, you need to know that Helping Hands have been supporting people on their palliative care journeys since 1989 and we are therefore the palliative care at home experts. Staying at home can be the preference for many people who love where they live, and by choosing our local Kingston upon Thames care team you’ll be supported compassionately, as will your loved ones.
Although thoughts understandably turn to the end of life when you’re on your palliative care journey, it’s a fact that many people live for years before their condition seriously deteriorates and end of life becomes a reality. End of life care is the conclusion of your palliative care and as that approaches it’s important that you have a care team in place who can follow your wishes and ensure your requests for the end of your life are followed. It’s important to think about what you want from your end-of-life care while you’re still well enough to plan it, and while you can have care in a number of locations, it’s so beneficial to remain in your own home, with people you love around you and views you’ve always enjoyed looking at.
Our Kingston upon Thames palliative care team will look after you from the very first moment you contact them, guiding you through your care options and making sure the care you choose suits you perfectly. We provide care on both a visiting-care and a live-in-care basis, meaning that whatever service you choose, your care will be built around your exact requirements. Our carers are amazing and regularly go above and beyond to ensure you live as well as possible at home, supporting you with daily tasks such as medication, personal care and meal preparation. They’ll also be able to help around the house and accompany you in the community if you wish, and they’ll always promote your independence and make sure your care is carried out with dignity and compassion. Also, because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can always be reassured that the care we promise is the care we’ll deliver.
