What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is there to make a person as comfortable as possible during serious and sometimes terminal illnesses. For you or a loved one, accepting a terminal illness diagnosis is difficult. In-home palliative care services are provided in order to ensure a person’s last moments are as comfortable and as pain-free as possible.
Palliative home care is there to help those suffering from severe illnesses, with physical, emotional and psychological specialist care plans. Though it can lead to end-of-life care, it is important to note that in-home palliative care is different. Palliative care is a much broader term and can continue much longer.
Palliative care’s main focus is to improve the quality of life, rather than extending it. Our palliative carers will work closely with the individual in question, and their loved ones, to find an effective routine that will best help with their emotions and physical needs. Whether this is managing the pain, working through any psychological damage through therapy, or simply days out to enjoy what time they have left. At Complete Homecare, we put all our patients first and provide tailored care plans to suit their individual needs.
