Palliative Care At Home
Depending on the needs and preferences of the individual and their loved ones, palliative care can be carried out a home, in a care home, in a specialised hospice or at the hospital.
Receiving palliative care at home is a popular option for many people. They feel most happier in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by their loved ones. If an individual is receiving end of life palliative care, they usually want to make the very most of the time they have left with their family and friends.
If you or your loved one opts for palliative care at home, a team of healthcare professionals, such as a GP and community nurses will provide basic palliative care.
This care will aim to manage the physical symptoms of the life-limiting condition. Specialist palliative care may also be provided for people with complex illnesses, such as cancer.
In many circumstances, family members and loved ones will also be on hand to provide other types of care, such as emotional support, personal care, meal preparation, help with mobility, household chores and more.
However, for many families, it is not possible to provide round the clock care for a loved one due to other responsibilities, such as work commitments and children. That’s where we come in.
Palliative care is specialist care tailored to someone living with a serious illness.
Palliative care does not always mean end of life care. In many circumstances, palliative care is provided alongside treatments and therapies aiming to control a serious illness. Some people receive palliative care for years.
In other circumstances, palliative care is provided to ensure an individual is comfortable in the last few days, weeks or months of their life.
In both instances, palliative care aims to improve the quality of life of the induvial, whilst helping the individuals loved ones through an extremely difficult time.
