Palliative care is a specialised type of care designed to support those with severe terminal illnesses. This type of care focuses primarily on the management of the symptoms, pain, and stress associated with terminal conditions such as cancer and heart failure. It also aims to improve the overall quality of life for the patient and their families.
We know how distressing it can be to see how terminal illness affects a loved one. As a result, we are committed to providing specialist palliative support designed to suit your needs and help you make the most of your time together. Our compassionate, one-on-one care will allow your loved ones to stay where they are most comfortable by providing a full-time live-in or visiting carer that will see to all their care needs.

The Benefits of Palliative Home Care
Palliative home care is also less disruptive, as it allows family members to carry on with their lives and makes it easier for family and friends to visit. The round-the-clock care also allows easier monitoring of and response to changes in the client’s condition. Contact us today to find out more about the benefits of our palliative home care services.
