Palliative Care

A guide to Palliative Care, advance care planning
and the services we offer to support
someone at this time in their life

We understand how upsetting it can be when you or a loved one receives the news that they have a terminal illness or that there are no further treatment options available.

Whether this news comes out of the blue or following a long period of treatment, or even remission, it can turn your whole world upside down in a second.  At this time it is important to have the right care and support network in place to support you and your family.

Our bespoke Palliative Care packages are tailored to our clients’ specific requirements and can change as their needs evolve, ensuring we can continue to deliver personal care and support to them, in their own home in the final stages of their life. Our advanced carers are specifically trained to support even the most complex of medical needs as well as assisting with the practical aspects of daily life, promoting comfort, independence and dignity at all times.

Our team of friendly and compassionate carers will be there every step of the way, supporting both physical and emotional needs and making life more comfortable for everyone involved.

 

Paying for care

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care is designed to offer care and support to someone with a terminal or life-limiting illness  when there are no further treatment options available. Palliative Care can help to manage physical symptoms such as pain or injuries, support emotional, psychological and spiritual needs, fulfil practical needs such as washing, dressing, personal care or eating and provide support for family and friends.

Palliative Care can be accessed at any stage of an illness and doing so does not mean that the person is likely to die soon. In fact, some people can receive palliative care for years – every case is unique. Palliative Care aims to improve the quality of life and can be delivered alongside other treatments, therapies and medicines that can help to control the progression of an illness.
