Palliative care enables you to stay in your own home whilst receiving treatment, living with an illness or receiving end of life care 

Our specialist carers can help you stay in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home at a time when you need it most. We'll work with you to relieve and prevent symptoms and pain. We will also help you feel safe, secure and comfortable. We'll support you through the challenges, changes and difficult decisions you and your family are facing. We will focus on giving you the best possible quality of life at home. Care focuses on comfort, dignity and helping you do the things that are important to you.

Who is palliative care for?

We support adults who need palliative care and end of life care at home. We can care and support you if you 

  • Are suffering from a curable or terminal life threatening illness
  • Are receiving treatment for an illness or condition at home
  • Need support to manage pain, symptoms or disabilities from an illness or condition

Is palliative care and end of life care at home right for you?

  • You prefer to receive support in your own home
    You have a choice about where you receive the care you need. If you want to receive palliative care and support at home rather than in hospital or a care home then no matter what the complexities of your situation we can work with you, your family and healthcare professionals to make this happen.
  • You need help managing pain, symptoms and disabilities
    A curable or terminal illness or condition may cause pain, symptoms or disabilities that you need help with. Our palliative care teams can help you be as comfortable and independent as possible within your own home.
  • You seek tailored flexibility
    Care and support that is tailored to your individual needs, routines and ways of doing things, and that is provided by the same people, is far more fitting during such difficult times.
  • You want to be cared for by people you know and trust
    When you are feeling vulnerable it is likely that you want to be supported by people you know and trust. With palliative care and end of life care at home you will have the same carer or carers visit your home. They will get to know you personally, truly understand your individual needs and desires and most importantly, they will become your friends.
