Cancer care is a dedicated branch of care that focuses on supporting those living with cancer through symptom management, practical and emotional support, and light medical relief. Since 1989, Helping Hands have been providing empathetic, transformative home care to customers up and down the country. In that time, we’ve helped tens of thousands of people to continue living in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes, where they can retain their independence and live life on their own terms. Our cancer care focuses on allowing you to maintain as much normality as possible, and live a longer, healthier life.
If you or a loved one are living with cancer, there may come a point when you would benefit from a bit of extra support from a friendly pair of hands. A cancer carer can provide physical, practical and emotional support for you and the family, helping you to manage your symptoms, tackle the challenges of day-to-day life and live with the often overwhelming news of a cancer diagnosis. However straightforward or complex your needs might be, our carers can provide you with a wide range of care services – including visiting care, live-in care and palliative care.
At Helping Hands, we adopt a person-centred approach to home care, which means that you and your needs are placed at the heart of every decision. From your very first phone call to our friendly team, we’ll make sure your wishes are being respected, and your local care manager will visit you at home so that they can work with you to design a care plan that offers the holistic, flexible support that our customers love. We know that cancer care needs are largely dependent on the type and stage of cancer you’re living with, which is why we’ll never adopt a one-size-fits-all approach to your support but will instead ensure we fully understand the specific ways in which we can best help you.
When you partner with Helping Hands for home care in Swadlincote, you can be assured that you’ll be looked after by the very best carers in the industry. We have a very stringent carer recruitment process that means we only hire people who are aligned with our company-wide values of being compassionate, kind and family-focused. We provide every new carer with our comprehensive training, which equips them to offer a wide range of care services to people with different support needs and conditions, and they’ll continue to undertake regular refresher courses to ensure their knowledge and skills are kept up to date. And, for extra reassurance, we’re independently regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know your care will always be of the very highest standard.
