End of life care at home means that you or a loved one is able to spend their last days in their own home, surrounded by familiar faces and memories in a peaceful environment. Here you can find out more about questions you may have and how to apply for care for yourself or a loved one.
What is end of life care at home?
End of life home care, also called palliative care, means that individuals are able to remain in their own homes while receiving round the clock end-of-life care. Palliative carers move into the home of the person they’re looking after and provide round-the-clock support. Our live-in carers are expertly trained to deliver end of life care at home to clients and, understanding what a distressing and fearful time it can be, they work closely with doctors, district nurses and the palliative care health team to provide professional and practical help, as well as emotional support and understanding. This makes it possible for someone to die at home as painlessly and peacefully as possible.
Our carers offer a tailored one-to-one service, helping to ease the stress on the family and allowing their relative dignity and comfort throughout. Being at home with live-in care means that there are no stressful hospital visits and family members can enjoy quiet, private time with their relative when they wish.
How to apply for care
We welcome calls from people who might be looking for palliative care and are happy to discuss individual requirements and create a personalised care plan specifically tailored to suit you and your loved one.
