We provide Palliative Care at Home. 24 hour care for total peace of mind.
WHAT IS PALLIATIVE CARE?
Palliative Care refers to the care for those affected by a terminal illness. It is distressing, watching how a terminal illness can change a loved one. We can help by providing specialist support with the day-to-day things, so your family can make the most of your time together.
Having the palliative care in the home means your family member or friend can stay where they feel most comfortable, surrounded by memories and the people they love. With the one-to-one support of a compassionate live-in carer, who has experienced in palliative care, your friend/family member will have that specialist support whenever they need it.
We provide the full range of live-in care services for palliative and end-of-life care. From personal care, medication reminders and cooking meals to merely sharing memories over a cup of tea, our support covers whatever you need. We will work alongside any hospice skilled care provided.
Palliative vs Hospice
Both palliative care and hospice care provide comfort. But palliative care can begin at diagnosis, and at the same time as treatment. Hospice care begins after treatment of the disease is stopped and when it is clear that the person is not going to survive the illness and does not have much time left. Palliative Care includes:
Palliative Care For Cancer
Palliative Care for Alzheimers
Palliative Care For Dementia
Palliative Care for Heart Disease
Palliative Care for Aids
