Embarking on a journey of palliative care can raise many questions about the future for both you and your loved ones. Thoughts of potential therapies, keeping you comfortable, and where your care will take place are at the forefront of everyone’s minds, as well as how you will manage while your journey progresses. Remaining in your own home throughout your palliative care journey and not having to relocate to a care home is as easy as talking to Helping Hands’ local care team in Widnes.
Palliative care is the care you’ll receive for a life-limiting – sometimes called terminal – condition. You may have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, or an existing condition may have deteriorated, but regardless of the circumstances you’ll be in a position to need some assistance to live your daily life. This assistance will ensure you remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible in comfortable and familiar surroundings.
Palliative care can last for years in some cases; however, a time will come where you’ll probably need some extra help to live independently, and you should be able to choose where that care takes place. If you’d prefer to remain in your own home rather than relocating to a care home or hospice, our bespoke packages of care can be tailored to your exact requirements. We’ll design a package of care around you and your exact needs, whether you need occasional visiting care or around the clock, live-in support. We’ll also provide you with a comprehensive support plan that will detail every aspect of your preferences and routine, which will ensure your carers always know how you like things done.
Our compassionate carers can support you with every aspect of your palliative care, including making sure your medication is taken on time and helping you with your mobility. We choose our carers to join us because they are naturally caring people, and we build on their existing skills so that they’ll have all the knowledge they’ll need to support you at home. All our carers undertake a programme of instruction whether they’re highly experienced or new to care, meaning you’ll always get consistent standards of care from our local team providing home care in Widnes. Our fully managed services are also regulated by the Care Quality Commission across England, providing reassurance for you and your loved ones that you’ll always be well supported.
