Helen’s Trust is here to provide care and support to people across the Derbyshire Dales and North East Derbyshire, who are affected by a life-limiting illness.
Perhaps you have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and wish to stay in the comfort of your own home as you near the end of your life, or you are caring someone who is dying, and you need some extra support – we are here for you.
Referrals can be made to the service for a variety of reasons including:
- Respite sits so that a carer can get some much-needed rest or to run errands
- To get a patient home from hospital or another in-patient unit
- Crisis avoidance, where a family is in need of support quickly to help with a potentially distressing or emotional situation
- For end of life care when a patient is in the final weeks or days of life
