Palliative care is a branch of care that focuses on supporting people with a terminal illness, such as types of dementia or advanced cancer. People sometimes live with a terminal illness for several years, but as their condition progresses they require specialised, dedicated care to ensure they’re able to manage their symptoms and effectively reduce their pain levels. Palliative care is designed to help people be as pain-free, stress-free and comfortable as possible as they learn the limitations of their condition.
At Helping Hands, we’re committed to providing expert, person-centred palliative care to people in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own home. If you or a loved one have palliative care needs and would like to remain at home, rather than moving to a residential nursing home, then we’re perfectly placed to support you. Our friendly team of carers in Poole are able to you or a loved one with a flexible, bespoke package of palliative care that fits your individual needs and can be adjusted as your condition changes or progresses.
End of life care differs slightly from palliative care in that it is reserved for people who are entering the final months and weeks of life. The primary aim of end-of-life care is to ensure that the person receiving care is experiencing as little pain and discomfort and possible. End-of-life car provides dignity and peacefulness during what is often a distressing time. Helping Hands, we provide exceptional end-of-life home care that supports your loved one emotionally and physically in the home they love. Remaining at home for end-of-life care means that your loved one will be surrounded by people, objects, views and memories that they love, and can help to ease stress and confusion. Staying at home also allows for more flexibility around care plans, so whether you need someone visiting at several fixed points throughout the day or a live-in carer who can provide 24-hour support, you can always be fully confident that you’re receiving a level of care that is appropriate to your needs.
