Helen's trust ethos is that everyone should have the opportunity and choice to die in the familiar surroundings of home, if that is their wish.
We seek to remove the barriers that may prevent a person with a terminal illness from staying at home. Each person and their circumstances are looked at on an individual basis and appropriate support is offered.
In many cases a family member takes on the role of main carer and can become tired or feel isolated. Helen's Trust can support them by providing night sits and day sits in the home. This gives a few free hours for them to have a rest or enjoy an activity which they have been missing and a good nights sleep safe in the knowledge that their loved one is being cared for in their own home.
