If you mention palliative care to people they will probably think you mean care that is carried out in a nursing home, hospital, or hospice. However, more and more people in Liverpool and the surrounding areas are choosing to have palliative care delivered in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. Palliative care is not end of life care; being told you’re going to receive palliative care does not mean you’re about to die. While it’s true that end of life care comes at the very end of the palliative care pathway, there is a long way to go before you get to that point, with some people receiving palliative care for years before their condition significantly deteriorates.
Helping Hands can offer palliative care on both a visiting and live-in basis, and because we’ve been delivering the highest standards of homecare for over 30 years we really are the company to trust for your or your loved one’s palliative care. We also offer Live in Care in Liverpool.
When you are approaching the end of your life you want to know that your wishes for your care are being adhered to and your preferences respected at all times. With Helping Hands, you can be reassured that we have years of experience supporting people to spend their last days as they wish, whether that means quietly at home or fulfilling the last items on your bucket list!
End of life care usually refers to the last weeks or days of life, when it has become obvious that there are no more treatments to be offered to you and your condition is deteriorating quickly. Remaining at home until the end means that you get to be in familiar surroundings surrounded by the beloved people and pets that mean the world to you, as well as precious possessions and items that represent a life well-lived always. Perhaps you’d like to be able to see your garden or hear your favourite music at all times which is easy to accommodate when you’re in your own home, so talk to Helping Hands about our compassionate Liverpool branch team looking after you when the time comes.
Remaining in your own home for palliative care means different things to different people, but you can be sure it means you get to be in the place you want to be. Choosing our friendly, expert Home Care in Liverpool team to support you means you’ll receive exemplary levels of care from people who are naturally compassionate and want to do the best for their customers, every single day. Being in your own home can do wonders for your mental wellbeing as well as your physical symptoms, just because you’re in the place you love with the people who matter around you. Being able to smell the roses you planted years before, or hear your cat purring as they sit on your bed are things you can’t put a price on, and with our care visits starting from only 30 minutes per week there really is an option for everyone. You can even have one of our carers live in your home with you so that they’re available around the clock to care for you and offer companionship.
