Tailored, one-to-one palliative care at home
We understand that having a support network in place is essential for people who have been diagnosed with terminal conditions. Hospitals and care homes are not the only option; tailored one-to-one live-in care enables palliative care at home to be delivered right through to the final stages of life. We understand that this is a highly emotional time for clients and their families and our carers assist with the practical aspects of daily life, as well as provide emotional support which is so important at this time.
Palliative care expertise
Our professional carers receive training in how to care and support clients approaching the end of life, supporting both medical and social care needs. We also work with nurses to ensure that our holistic service is tailored to support any complex medical procedures which may arise. Our extensive care planning process is designed to promote comfort and dignity, attending to a person’s needs and wishes.
Specialist nursing and medical care
Supported by our specialist nurse, Dr. Jane Pritchard, and our central senior management team (who are also nursing professionals), our professional care teams support clients with nursing care at home. All our professional carers are qualified to manage and administer medications and support with a number of complex medical interventions.
We understand that complex medical care can require equipment and other adaptations to the home. Our dedicated Occupational Therapist, Jackie Cooper, will not only liaise with doctors, district nurses and NHS OT’s and physiotherapists, she is also on hand to be able to conduct a thorough OT assessment to facilitate fast discharge from hospital when required. Our specialist nurse, dedicated central team, and OT will support our professional carers to ensure holistic and multi-disciplinary care is in place.
