Palliative Care in Portsmouth

What Palliative Care Services are Available in Portsmouth?

Being diagnosed with a life-limiting – or terminal – illness is a highly distressing time for both you and your loved ones, leading to many questions in all your minds while usually twinned with the desire to carry on as you always have, for as long as possible. When the question of care arises you may have already made up your mind that you want to remain in the home you love, surrounded by everything that represents a life enjoyed, and that’s where Helping Hands’ dedicated Portsmouth care team can best ensure you get to live out the rest of your life as you wish.

Beginning your palliative care journey does not mean you’re about to pass away; many people undertake treatments and therapies that sees them have months or even years of good-quality life before them, however, it’s important to put some plans in place while you’re feeling up to it, so that when the time comes you can be taken care of just exactly as you want.

End of life is the conclusion of your palliative care journey when you’re considered to be in the last few days or weeks of your life. It’s vitally important that you get to remain in the place that means the most to you for your end-of-life care, so that you can live your final days surrounded by the people, pets and possessions that represent your happiest times in life.

Our carers aren’t just highly trained towards your needs though, they are also on hand to emotionally support your family through what is a difficult time for everyone involved.
