When you are suffering from a life-threatening illness, it can be a painful time for both you and your loved ones. Our palliative care service aims to support you during this difficult time, making life more comfortable for everyone involved.
Palliative care service supports adults, young people or children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, whether that is terminal or curable, who wish to remain living in the comfort of their own homes. This service can be provided at all possible stages of illness, including pre-diagnosis, diagnosis, treatment, cure, death and bereavement.
The main objective of our service is to achieve the best quality of life for you, as well as your family. We understand that your family and friends may have strong feelings about your condition and it may be difficult for you to express your feelings for fear of upsetting them.
We can help you and your loved ones to discuss your feelings and provide extra support, should your loved ones need to take a break. In addition, we can provide support through periods of bereavement.
As part of our sensitive palliative care service, we ensure that you are treated as an individual, with dignity and respect. We will provide you with a personalised care plan that will take into account your needs, preferences and choices. We also like to ensure continuity of care, which is why we only select a small amount of Carers to work with you and get to know your personality and preferences.
