Our live-in and visiting home care service offers a positive alternative to the clinical setting of a hospital or residential home, where a person can remain in the relaxed surroundings of their own home and family visits are not restricted.
Whether help is required a few times a week, overnight, or on a live-in basis, we ensure that care at home is flexible for when it is needed and that it is fully tailored to individual requirements, and our carers will:
Respect dignity, privacy and choice at all times.
Provide person-centred care respecting the individual’s wishes at all time.
Provide practical, physical, emotional and spiritual support – incorporating the client’s beliefs, preferences and wishes into their daily routine.
Keep pain managed, monitored and under control.
Work closely with other key health professionals involved in the care – doctors, district nurses and palliative health teams to ensure that the end of life is as painless and peaceful as possible.
Enable the individual to remain as active and independent as possible.
Remain calm, reassuring and professional.
Our dedicated care management team have many years of experience in tailoring Hospice at home care for individuals at the end of their life and will be there every step of the way to ensure the care received is personal to you or your loved one.
Hospice at home care is an end of life care service, a type and philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of a chronically ill, terminally ill or seriously ill patient’s pain and symptoms, and brings the skills and practical care associated with the Hospice movement into the home environment.
Our Hospice at home service offers dignified end of life care and support to people who wish to spend their final days or months at home. Supported by fully trained, knowledgeable and empathic carers, this type of home care means they are able to remain in a comfortable, familiar environment surrounded by a lifetime of warmth and happy memories.
We know this is an incredibly difficult time for families and offer not only practical help, but also emotional support and gentle companionship, advice and reassurance at a time when they need it the most.
Our fully trained carers can provide day or night time visits to the home, from just half an hour a day, or can move in to the home of the client and provide full-time live-in care and support according to the personalised care plan and the client’s specific needs. This allows families to be safe in the knowledge that their relative’s days will be as free of anxiety as possible under the expert care of a patient and understanding professional.
