What Sunderland Palliative Care Services are Available?
When you or a loved one are diagnosed with a serious or terminal illness, it’s likely that at some point you will require palliative care. Palliative care is a specialised branch of care that focuses on helping people to manage the pain, symptoms and stress that can occur as a result of a serious condition. Traditionally palliative care has been received in a residential nursing home or hospice, but recently an increasing number of people are choosing to instead remain at home for it, allowing them to stay in a place where they feel secure, comfortable and able to maintain many of their normal routines. At Helping Hands, we’re committed to providing expert palliative home care that gives people independence and confidence.
End of Life Care in Sunderland
End-of-life care is a specialised branch of care that is reserved for people with a terminal illness who are in the final few months or weeks of life. The main focus of end-of-life care is to manage the individual’s pain levels, symptoms and emotional wellbeing to ensure the final stages of life are as stress-free and comfortable as possible. We all want our loved ones to experience a dignified, peaceful death, and that’s ultimately what end-of-life care helps to achieve.
At Helping Hands, we offer specialist end-of-life care to customers in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own home, rather than requiring them to uproot to a care home or a hospice. This means you’re able to remain the place you love, where you have fond memories and feel secure, to receive all the physical and emotional support you require as your condition progresses. Our end-of-life care is fully tailored to your specific requirements and wishes, meaning you’ll always never feel isolated or unable to cope.
