What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is a service where people with life-limiting illnesses are provided with the care and support that they need with dignity in their final days. 

From clinical and medical treatments to providing friendly companionship, palliative care can take many forms depending on your loved one's personal requirements. 

Our carers will also ensure that you and your family members are also coping with your loved one's condition. 

We aim to give our clients the highest quality of life right until the end by providing them with all the care and support they need. 

We will ensure that they feel independent while receiving care, helping them remain active and doing the things they love to do while they still can. 

Our team of highly trained carers will oversee the management of your loved one's symptoms, including emotional support and psychological care. This can also include medication routines and pain management services. 

People with life-limiting illnesses are those who are likely to die. Such illnesses include advanced dementia, motor neuron disease and late-stage cancer. 

At any point in your loved one's life with their condition, they can receive palliative care. It does not mean that they are about to die, and many people receive palliative care for multiple years. 

Palliative care includes providing care and support to those nearing the end and is often known as end-of-life care. 

Depending on your loved one's specific conditions and their individual care needs determines the kind of care and support that our skilled providers will deliver. 

Our approach to palliative care ensures that your loved one's symptoms are effectively managed and enables them to fulfil their personal goals. Receiving palliative care as a form of home care allows our clients to remain comfortable in their final days. 

This can be a great benefit to your loved one, especially when combined with our team's compassionate and dignified palliative care services. 

What does our Palliative Care Include?

Palliative care takes many forms, as with different clients come different care plans, personally tailored to each individual case. The care received by our clients can include: 

 Overseeing Medication

Our highly trained carers are fully equipped to handle the administration of all types of medication. We understand that this can be a crucial part of palliative care, and a professional and compassionate carer is on hand to lend their expertise.

 Arranging Social Visits

We will help your loved one stay in touch with their group of family and friends, arranging social visits whenever they like.

 Safe Mobility

Mobility is an integral part of maintaining independence, and we understand how important this can be to those receiving palliative care at home.

 Preparing and Cooking Meals

Eating healthy is just as important at the end of people's lives as throughout. Our carers can create nutritious meal plans for your loved ones, prepare healthy food for them, and assist them with eating where needed.

 Specialist Clinical Nurse-led Care

We have a trained nursing care team who can oversee all of your loved one's needs while keeping an eye out for changes in their condition and reacting appropriately.

 Trips Outdoors

Our expert carers will be happy to help your loved one get outside and interact with their local community network. This can involve anything from a gentle stroll around the park to visiting friends and favourite spots.

 Dignified Personal Care

This can involve your loved one's ablutions and washing tasks, help get dressed, and maintain self-esteem through personal grooming. 

 Tasks and Chores

Any duties that need doing around the house, including cleaning, laundry etc., can all be overseen by our professional carers.

 Companionship

Our highly trained carers are on hand to provide both your family and your loved one with a friendly and compassionate person to talk with.

 Pet Care

A carer can even care for your loved one's pets, including feeding and walking.

Our professional team are on hand to provide your loved one with a comprehensive and compassionate care service. Besides being medically proficient at caring for your loved one's clinical needs, your carer will also offer friendly and understanding companionship. 

For some, this is a vital service, given that many of the conditions people we care for are living with can be stressful and emotionally straining. 

Our care and support services are all personally tailored to our client's individual care needs. We will conduct a personal assessment to discover exactly what your loved one requires from our specialist care team. 

In this way, we will be able to provide precisely the home care service that they need. This can vary from short-term companionship services to 24-hour, full-time, live-in care. 

When does End of Life Care Begin?

End of life care begins when our clients require it, and it can last for a few days, months or even several years. People living with different conditions can all benefit from end-of-life care, whether they are expected to live only for the next couple of hours or the next few years. People expected to die within the next 12 months are considered to be nearing the end of their lives, but it is impossible to predict this timescale accurately. 

People who may benefit from the end of life care include:

 Those with advanced, terminal illnesses, such as cancer and dementia 

 Those who suffer from frailty and a combination of conditions could die within the next 12 months.  

 Those with life-limiting illnesses are acute and are brought on by sudden changes, such as an accident or a stroke.  

 Those with pre-existing conditions mean they are at a higher risk of dying due to accidents or sudden medical problems.

Other Conditions We Care For

Companions Home Care are a comprehensive care service that can care for you or your loved one, regardless of what requirements you could have. Our team of professional and highly trained carers can provide care to anyone living with several conditions, such as: 

 Dementia 

 Parkinson's disease 

 Alzheimer's disease 

 Multiple sclerosis (MS) 

 Stroke 

 Cancer Respite 

 Mobility and Frailty
