I’m a Health or Social Care Professional
Helen’s Trust can provide a variety of services to enable people to stay in their own homes or return home in the last months and weeks of life.
Helen's Trust will support individuals deemed to be in the last 6 months of life of any illness, who wish to remain in their own home. Support provided is in addition to statutory provision.
Our services can facilitate discharge from hospital until a package of care is in place, avoid unnecessary admissions to acute settings and provide much needed respite for carers. We offer both night and day sitting services. Night sits are usually funded in the first instance for 4 nights. We will consider subsequent additional requests for night sitting services.
Day sitting services will be funded at a maximum of 6 hours per week over a 6 month period. These hours will be flexible, to meet the needs of the patient and their carer.
