Palliative Care

Palliative care at home means that your loved one does not have to move into a residential facility. Being in a familiar environment, among home comforts improves mental health and morale, which are paramount to care.

Everyone is uniquely different and has differing priorities and preferences.

How we can help

Palliative care is for people living with a terminal illness where a cure is no longer possible and who are in the last weeks, months or years of their life. End of life care aims to allow people to live as well as possible and to pass away with dignity.

How can home palliative care can help?

Palliative care at home means that your loved one does not have to move into a residential facility. Being in a familiar environment, among home comforts improves mental health and morale, which are paramount to care.

As health deteriorates, mobility diminishes, and the level of support from family and friends needed increases a home palliative care team can provide physical, psychological and social support for your loved one and your family. Our support workers are all trained in providing care at the end of life and understand the nature of support and care that is needed at this time.

Your loved one can receive end of life holistic care tailored to their needs and preferences, surrounded by familiar faces and memories in a peaceful environment.

We work closely with doctors, district nurses and the medical palliative care health team to provide not just professional and practical help, but also emotional support and understanding. This makes it possible for someone to die at home as painlessly and peacefully as possible. It can be very reassuring to have a consistent team of support workers throughout this time, who can also provide invaluable support to relatives and loved ones.
