If you’ve been diagnosed with a life-limiting condition, you may presume that you’ll have to leave the home you love and relocate to a residential home or hospice. This isn’t the case however, and many people now choose to remain in their own home for their palliative care. As your condition progresses you may find that you are not able to live as independently as you once did, and that some assistance in your home is required. Our fantastic local care team can be on hand across the whole of New Milton area to offer visiting or live-in care to suit you and your needs.
These days, health care aims to be much more person-centred, focussing on a holistic or ‘whole-person’ approach, rather than just thinking about physical care needs. Being diagnosed with a life-limiting condition can be extremely stressful for both the person diagnosed and their loved ones, however choosing our compassionate carers to support you in your home, as part of your wider healthcare team, will give you a sense of control over your daily life.
Choosing to have your palliative care at home means you get to spend your time with the people who love you, the pets that are your constant companions, and the view from the window that’s so familiar. There’ll be no worrying about visiting times or potential restrictions when you receive your care at home, as you’ll remain in control of where you go and what you do daily. Your bespoke package of care will be designed especially for you and take into account your medical requirements, appointment schedule, and your household requirements. Our carers can support with everything from your nutrition, medication, housework, personal care, and so much more, and your personalised support plan will stay in your home so that all of your carers know exactly how you want things done.
Because Helping Hands offers a fully managed palliative care service as well as high quality home care in New Milton, we make sure we only choose the most compassionate and supportive carers to deliver it. All of the carers who join us are taken on because they have natural qualities of kindness and empathy, whether they are experienced carers or not. We respect the skills that our carers already possess but we build on them with superb training and development opportunities. We also like to promote from within whenever possible, and many of our managers originally joined us as carers. We’ve been delivering superb levels of care across England and Wales for over 30 years, and because our care services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission you know you’ll be well looked after.
