We completely understand how difficult it can be to see a loved one being affected by a terminal illness, which is where we can help by providing specialist palliative care and support to ensure your loved ones experience a quality of life and enjoy time with the family.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative Care is when specialist care and support is provided to yourself or your loved ones that have a terminal illness, also to support friends and family.
WHO reports that each year an estimated 40million people require palliative care at home, worldwide only 14% of people who need palliative care currently receive it.
The aim of Palliative Care at home is to ensure you have a good quality of life, which includes you enjoying your time that you have left with your loved ones and being as active as possible.
Palliative care is offered to people with the following illnesses:
* Heart disease
* Blood and bone marrow disorders
* Cystic fibrosis
* End-stage liver disease
* Kidney failure
* Lung disease
* Parkinson’s disease
Home care Palliative Care
ONS stats show that ‘80% of people would like to spend their end of life in their own home. We work alongside medical teams to try and make this possible. With a majority of the people wanting to spend their remaining days in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by their loved ones, our services accommodate this important need and we appreciate that our clients want to remain in a familiar environment, surrounded by happy memories and things they enjoy.
Personal and domestic care
Individuals that have a lifelong condition may seek support and care to help with day-to-day tasks. Support could range from bathing, washing, meal preparation, household chores, and assisting with movement around the house. We are always here to support yourself or your loved ones.
Around-the-clock support to assist yourself or your loved ones in your own home, whether that is to provide support at any time of the day or night. The benefit of a live-in carer is that they understand the needs of individuals and get to know routines. Live-in-care can be provided as long as it is required. This can ease day-to-day responsibilities, so individuals can spend precious time with family and friends.
Care and support delivered on a short-term basis, as an individual’s loved ones may be busy with other commitments, or could be on holiday, and if an individual has come home from hospital, you may require extra support to help your loved ones recover.
