If you are living with a life-limiting condition your main fear may be that your life is coming to an end, but that isn’t necessarily the case, as some people can remain on the palliative care pathway for years before their condition deteriorates to such an extent that they are at the end of their life. Your condition will be managed as effectively as possible while treatment and therapies are offered, and these treatments are designed to provide you with the best quality of life for as long as possible.
Being able to remain in your own home for palliative care rather than uprooting to a nursing or care home is an option that many people don’t realise they have, yet it can offer the best possible opportunity for a high quality of life, considering that you’ll be around the people you love every day, along with pets who mean the world to you and surroundings that bring feelings of safety and comfort. Our dedicated Stratford-upon-Avon care team will be able to support you and your family through the difficult times ahead and care for you to the very highest standards.
Palliative care can last for years before the end of your life approaches, however, it’s important to think about how you would like the last few days and weeks of your life to progress, such as care options and the surroundings you would like to be in. Many people feel that they would like to pass away peacefully in the home they love, and this is always going to be an option when you choose palliative and end-of-life care from Helping Hands.
Our compassionate care teams across England and Wales have been supporting people to live and die with dignity since we began in 1989, so after more than 30 years delivering our visiting-care and live-in-care care services we really are the home care experts. Our compassionate carers promote a whole-person approach for your care that ensures your holistic needs are taken into account every single day, as well as supporting your loved ones emotionally at this difficult time.
Our care team in Stratford-upon-Avon consists of compassionate, dedicated carers and managers who will ensure you live as comfortably as possible in your own home, while also getting to enjoy the community you love. Our carers work tirelessly to ensure that you get to do the things you want to every day, and by remaining in your home for your care you reap the benefits that it brings to your emotional and physical wellbeing.
Staying in your own home for your care means you get to spend more time with those who love you, and because they won’t be subject to visiting times or restrictions your life continues as you want it to. At Helping Hands, we will support you with every aspect of your care, including ongoing medication, personal care and nutrition requirements, and because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones know you’ll receive a consistency of the very highest standards of care, for as long as you need us.
