What Surrey Palliative Care Services are Available?
Palliative care can last for years before the person is considered to be at the end of their life, whereas end of life care is usually the last few weeks or days of life when it’s clear the individual’s condition won’t improve, no matter what measures are employed. Whichever stage you or your loved one is at, Helping Hands’ primary priority is maintaining quality of life for our customers and ensuring they get to stay in the home they love that means the world to them, around precious people, pets and possessions.
Palliative care in the Surrey area used to be traditionally in hospices or care homes, but thanks to Helping Hands, many people now choose to remain at home for their palliative care so that they can enjoy their time in familiar and beloved surroundings. We’ve been supporting people to have care at home since 1989, so it’s no exaggeration to say we really are the experts. We even have our own team of clinical nurses who can supervise complex care packages.Request a callback Email us
End of Life Care Options in Surrey
End of life care is a difficult time for everyone involved, and that’s why you need carers who can work alongside other multi-agency healthcare professionals seamlessly and calmly. It’s important that loved ones’ feelings are also taken into account and that’s why your Helping Hands carer will be compassionate and empathetic to all of the family, ensuring that the situation is peaceful, dignified and just as your loved one wants it. Our carers can be with you on both a visiting and live-in care basis, depending on your circumstances and requirements, and all of our care is fully-managed, with an operational team who is always ready to do what they can to assist. Visiting carers will be able to come as often as you need them throughout the day, whereas a live-in carer will be resident in your or your loved one’s home around the clock, meaning they are there to care day and night as well as offer companionship and emotional support to everyone involved.
Why Choose our Surrey Palliative Care Team?
Our professional and compassionate Surrey care team will offer palliative care on both a physical and emotional level. It’s important that the mental health aspects of a life-limiting disease are considered, and your personalised support plan will ensure that at all times, your emotional, spiritual and holistic wellbeing is also at the forefront of your care. While it can be difficult to bring yourself to talk to loved ones about what will happen at the end of life, it is important to consider how you would like things done and reassure loved ones that you are aware of what is happening and you have made plans to encompass every aspect of your care, and afterwards. Regardless of why you’d like to remain at home, Helping Hands can support you with every aspect of your care, as well as being a dignified and professional presence right up until the final moments. Our carers undergo specialist training to ensure that they can care for you with confidence and compassion until the end of your life. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which means you can be confident in us to deliver the very highest standards of care that we promise to.
