Palliative care at home

What is palliative or end-of-life Care at home?

Palliative care at home provides families with the necessary support to care for their loved ones who have a terminal illness. The focus is on relieving symptoms, pain, and stress. This care service allows the patient to remain (or return to) their home environment, where they feel most comfortable, surrounded by cherished memories and family. 

All of our care professionals receive specialised palliative training, which covers pain management, medication, personal care, companionship, meal preparation, and support for the patient's family.

Who is palliative care for?

Palliative care supports families and individuals with severe or life-threatening health conditions who want to manage their symptoms with minimal stress and disruption at home instead of in a hospital or hospice.

We work closely with the family to ensure everything is perfect for the person cared for and work with specially selected care professionals who are not only trained but also have experience in palliative care and can provide the emotional support needed. 

How does palliative care work?

During your free assessment, we will seek to understand what is special to your loved one and how we can best care for them. We will then create a unique palliative care plan focusing on relieving any symptoms they may be experiencing, pain management and how to make them as comfortable as possible.

The benefits of Dog Therapy for palliative care:

We have been supporting the Hospice in the Weald with therapy dog visits. 

Dog therapy is a valuable resource in palliative care, providing comfort, companionship, and emotional support. Interacting with a well-trained dog reduces stress, promotes relaxation, and lowers blood pressure, enhancing the overall well-being of patients.

 

Moreover, dog therapy encourages social interaction, improves communication, and creates positive distractions, contributing to a higher quality of life for individuals in palliative care. Through the release of endorphins, petting or cuddling a dog can provide a natural mood boost, fostering a sense of emotional well-being and peace during challenging times.

What next?

Now is the perfect time to schedule your free assessment. During this informal visit, a member of our team will come to your home, meet with you and your family, and begin creating a personalized care plan that will help you maintain your independence and live comfortably at home.
