Over the past ten years, we have built an outstanding reputation within the Cumbria care sector for our range of services, but particularly for our end of life care. Our clients and their families value the fact that we deliver such a personal and caring service at this difficult and sensitive time.
It is always our ultimate aim that our palliative care service allows clients to maintain their independence, dignity and comfort within their own home during this time. We also understand how important it is to extend emotional support to our client’s families.
Some illnesses and conditions can change very quickly and our priority as a company is to ensure that our clients spend their final time in the way they wish.
The need to arrange palliative care can be very urgent, especially if someone is in pain or distress and awaiting hospital discharge. If a client is in hospital, we act quickly to get them home as soon as possible, so they may spend their last days in the comfort of their own home surrounded by loved ones and treasured memories.
Our emergency home care service can be arranged very quickly, usually within 24 hours of receiving the enquiry. This is especially useful for unplanned situations.
One of the main benefits of receiving palliative care at home is that it allows the individual to be in familiar surroundings. This can bring enormous comfort and peace and allows them to be in the company of people they know and trust, whilst receiving their end of life care.
As well as being reassuring for the person receiving care, palliative care provided at home can offer peace of mind to families and close friends too.
Choosing palliative homecare instead of a hospital or hospice can mean less disruption for everybody, enabling consistent round-the-clock care, provided by a small and trusted team. Any changes in condition will be noticed and responded to quickly by our team, who work closely with other health care professionals i.e. district nurses and hospice at home teams.
The wishes, beliefs and priorities of individuals are paramount in decision making and we are happy to work alongside other professionals to gain further advice and support for family members during those difficult times.
Our end of life care also includes care for individuals with a long term illness or a terminal diagnosis. We can put together a bespoke, flexible care package that is adaptable to the ever-changing needs of the client.
Providing the consistency of a small care team is reassuring to clients, who know that their carers will be there to nurse them until their final days.
With Heydays, you also have the peace of mind that your loved one is being cared for by a company with an outstanding local reputation, and company that is professionally managed, licensed and regulated by the Care Quality Commission.

“We want to say a big heartfelt thank you to the Heydays staff for looking after dad for those final months. You managed to put a smile on his face with your banter and made his life that much easier to bear. You became friends instead of just carers and your visits will be missed. Once again thankyou for the cards and lovely flowers.”
