Palliative Care at Home

When choosing elder care services for your loved one, you may need to choose between companion care and personal care. Because of this, it’s helpful to know the difference between the two services. With a home care companion, duties typically include activities such as doing laundry, making meals, and assisting with errands. However, this type of care does not include physical assistance with activities like dressing, bathing, or toileting.

Personal care covers the basic care duties of companion caregiving, while also providing physical assistance to clients. Personal care services can also include non-medical assistance for chronic health conditions, like diabetes or Parkinson’s.

What are my Palliative Care options?

Two thirds of people would like to spend their final hours at home. Palliative care can make this possible and there are several options to consider. These include: 

Personal & domestic care. Respite care.

Respite care

Why choose Palliative Care at Home?

Staying at home

Most people want to spend their remaining days in the comfort of their own home. Palliative home care is one of the best ways to do this. Our services enable people to spend their final days surrounded by loved ones with privacy and respect. 

Our clients appreciate being able to remain at home in a familiar environment surrounded by happy memories and their favourite things. Palliative care at home offers peace of mind.  

Choice

Another benefit of Palliative Care is that it can vary according to need. It can begin with modest care always delivered with dignity and respect and increase if needed as time goes on. This could mean clients are able to remain at home, without the need to go to a hospice or hospital.  

Normality

Facing a terminal illness is already difficult and moving away from home can sometimes make it even harder. That’s why our clients find receiving palliative care at home helps to maintain some normality and family and friends can visit without having to stick to specific visiting times.  

Continuity

Palliative care at home can mean continuity of care too with a dedicated team of carers assigned to clients so they get to know them and their preferences. 

Palliative care at home is not appropriate for everyone. Each person’s health needs are different and going to a hospital or a hospice may be unavoidable and the best place for someone with acute medical needs. We always work with families and relevant health professionals.
