Our home care in Stoke-on-Trent team have got over 30 years of experience in providing specialist palliative care at home, so we understand how distressing it can be to see a loved one trying to come to terms with a life-limiting illness, or to have to come to terms with one yourself. Our aim is to give you the care and support you need to allow you to have a good quality of life for as long as possible in the comfort of your own home, in familiar surroundings and with the people you love.
During your final months you deserve to feel supported, comfortable and dignified. It’s really important that you receive a level of care that addresses all your needs and relieves you and your loved ones of any unnecessary stresses. Some choose to receive end of life care at a residential nursing home or a hospice, but an increasing number of people are discovering the benefits of having access to end of life care at home.
Home care provides a reassuring, stimulating environment where you can receive all the support you need whilst maintaining your independence and routine and staying close to loved ones. Whether you need live-in care in Stoke-on-Trent, daily visits or intermittent support, we’re able to provide a full range of packages that cover all aspects of care. And, if your care needs change or you need a response from your medical team, you’ll have a local care manager just a phone call away.
Our palliative care focuses on ensuring you or your loved one are able to live as well as possible in the comfort and familiarity of your own home. Our palliative care team are highly trained in providing care for a wide range of conditions and needs, including dementia care, personal care, continence care, medication support, pain management, assistance with mobility, meal preparation, housework, running errands and caring for pets.
We can also provide live-in care, giving you 24-hour support from a specially trained carer who will support your specific requirements. Our live-in carers are chosen to complement your personality; we want you to be matched with someone who fully understands you, and whose companionship you’ll enjoy.
Our carers in Stoke-on-Trent are all carefully recruited to ensure they share our values of empathy, compassion and dedication. Additionally, we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW), so when you receive care from Helping Hands you know it will be of a very high standard every single day.
