Palliative care is the journey you commence when you are undergoing treatments or therapies related to your life-limiting illness, but did you know you could be receiving much of your care at home? If you are looking for palliative care in the Milton Keynes area then you need to ensure that whoever you choose is experienced in delivering efficient and professional care at all times. At Helping Hands, we have over 30 years of expertise in delivering care to our customers at home, and when it comes to the emotional care aspects of living with a terminal illness, our Milton Keynes home care will be there for you and your loved ones throughout.
When you are far along your palliative care journey and are approaching the last few weeks or days then you are said to be entering the end of life stage. This may not be for years after your diagnosis though, so in the meantime your team of medical professionals will be working on ways to prolong your quality of life and ensure any pain is managed effectively. Helping Hands’ team of compassionate managers and carers in the Milton Keynes area will be able to support both you and your loved ones to ensure that your wishes for your end of life care are carried out just as you want, which is comforting to know during such a difficult time.
Receiving palliative care in your own home is a beneficial form of support because it keeps you in the home you love, without the need for relocating to a residential home or hospice. This means you’re in familiar and comforting surroundings and not bound by rules about how many people can be around your bed or at what times they can visit. This also means that your faithful pets can be by your side or sitting on your bed, keeping you company until the very end. Whether you choose our visiting or live-in care service, you will always receive the same high standards of care you’d expect from us.
At Helping Hands, we value our carers highly because they are the people who make such a difference to our customers’ lives, every single day. We train them well so that they’re ready to support you, no matter what condition or illness you’re living with, and because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you can be confident in our exemplary standards of care delivery.
Call us today to discuss your care needs with our friendly customer care team, they’re available seven days a week for your convenience. Alternatively, contact us via our website; you’ll be very glad you did.
