What is Palliative & End of Life Care?
Palliative care is for anyone with a life-limiting condition. This means a condition, illness or disease which is progressive and cannot be cured. Depending on what kind of palliative care you require, you may be offered palliative care at home, in a hospital, a nursing home or a hospice, by the specialist palliative care team.
If you or your loved one decides to avail of palliative care services at home, you one will require medical support, emotional support, and practical support. Palliative care is a term that covers a variety of care needs which can be identified at the assessment stage, using the Palliative Care Needs assessment guidance. A clinical manager from Comfort Keepers will visit you or your loved one in the comfort of your own home to assess and discuss how we can best support you at this time.
A home support plan will be tailored to your specific needs and will be centred around maintaining dignity and comfort. At Comfort Keepers we understand the importance of practical care such as providing personal care- washing and dressing and practical care such as shopping and light housework.
Our carers understand the emotional needs of our palliative care clients and can offer support and companionship to our clients at this important time. At Comfort Keepers, we regard it as a privilege to support you and your loved ones at this crucial time in their lives.
