Support for adults with a terminal illness or long term condition, so you can stay in your own home 

Facing up to a terminal or long term illness is challenging. If you were born with the illness or developed it as a young child we can help you figure out a way to accommodate your illness or condition and live independently in your own home. If you have just become ill you will be used to living independently and will want to keep hold of that as far as possible.  

We work closely with professionals and family members to provide short and medium term care and support packages to aid in treatment and recovery programs or long term support. We support adults with a range of terminal illness and long term illness including 

  • Cancer
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The support and care we provide will be tailored to your needs and the demands of the specific illness or condition. Other types of support may be related to

  • Help with domestic tasks
  • Help with personal care
  • Being a supporting companion
  • Support with achieving daily tasks 
  • Support with doing activities you may find challenging
  • Managing medication and prescriptions

Through flexible care and support for people with a terminal or long term illness we'll provide as little or as much help as you need. You can continue living in your own home and everything we do will focus on cultivating your independence.
