Palliative care … is specialised care for people with serious illnesses. It is focused on providing people with relief from their symptoms, the pain and the stress of a serious illness – whatever the prognosis. Our goal is to improve quality of life for both the person suffering and their family and loved ones.
We have had the privilege of coming alongside many people who needed help and support throughout this difficult time. We can, if requested, liaise with all those involved with caring including the doctors, district nurses, Macmillan Nurses, Occupational Therapists and family taking the strain off everyone as much as possible.
We can provide care from a half our call to 24 hour Wrap around care, as needs change. We are flexible to changing needs, and can respond quickly to these changes.
We can assist with personal care, medication, preparation of meals, shopping, taking to appointments and offer a support to family and friends.
We can arrange for night care, sleepovers, waking shifts to give peace of mind that there is a trained carer on hand when you need them.
We can also advise from our long experience, and offer our expertise in helping with choices, at a really difficult time.
