Benefits of palliative care
Having palliative care within your own home can ease the strains of treatments and difficulties living with long-term illnesses. Staying within your own home for most individuals is a more preferable method of receiving care as, home comforts and normal routines do not have to be disturbed. Individual personalised care packages will be arranged for your loved one ensuring that the most appropriate and best quality care can be provided. Pain management and medication administration can be easily provided within your loved ones own home and can help alleviate unnecessary stress and discomfort that may develop from moving out of their own home. Our carers aim to help your loved one to lead the highest quality of life that they are able to for those needing palliative care. We achieve consistency of care by ensuring that your loved one has the same carer for at least 4 weeks and have a maximum of two carers in rotation. This means that a regular routine can be developed ensuring that pain relief and medication prompting can be managed accurately.
Arranging Palliative Care
Palliative care can be arranged within a week of your initial enquiry. You will speak with our specialist care coordinators to arrange the best type of care for your loved one, whether that be 24 hour live-in care or hourly care once a day.
