Palliative care

Palliative care is treatment, care and support for people with a life-limiting illness. It aims to relieve pain and other symptoms, easing pain and improving quality of life. Palliative care is often associated with end-of-life care.

Caring for someone with a long-term condition is a significant undertaking. You may need help with personal care and support, such as dressing, bathing and using the toilet. You may also need to take a variety of medicines at certain times in the day.

We can support you and your family with two kinds of palliative care:

  • A live-in care worker in your own home
  • In one of our comfortable care homes

Palliative care at home

If you want professional, compassionate care without the upheaval of moving to hospital or a care home, palliative care at home from an Agincare live-in care worker is the ideal solution.

What is palliative care at home?

Our highly experienced and qualified live-in carer workers provide fully-managed and regulated, palliative care in your home, tailored to your specific needs. Our care services cover:

  • Providing personal care
  • Helping with emotional and spiritual issues and any concerns you may have
  • Administering medication, oxygen, and managing pain and all other symptoms
  • Preparing meals
  • Washing, cleaning and shopping
  • Supporting family members and helping with any plans that need to be made
  • Looking after pets, so you don’t need to worry about them
  • Liaising with healthcare professionals

Our live-in carer workers are dedicated to providing high-quality personal care. All our carer workers are able to handle any situation in a respectful and compassionate manner. And we can arrange specialist training depending on a person’s needs.

“Alin and Dawn provided exceptional end of life care for my wife and made a very positive contribution to making a comfortable and happy home environment. Nothing was too much trouble.” Andrew.

Your live-in care worker will provide companionship too. And because you’re at home, rather than in hospital, friends and family can visit whenever they want, without the restrictions of hospital visiting times.

We work with community health teams so that everything is tailored to your needs. We can also get prescriptions from your GP or arrange a home visit if required. And if you have mobility issues we can work with occupational therapists and provide an additional carer at certain times if needed.

If you need our help urgently, our rapid response approach means we can provide emergency care within 48 hours.

Call us now on 0800 0121 247 to talk to our friendly and professional team about palliative care at home.

Palliative care in an Agincare care home

While each of our care homes has its own individual style and range of facilities, they all give security, independence, and the very best expert care. Some of our care homes are nursing homes where our residents have access to 24-hour nursing care.

At an Agincare care home you’ll find:

  • Expert, personal care 24-hours a day
  • Comfortable, homely accommodation
  • Daily activities to stimulate body and mind
  • A freshly-prepared, nutritionally balanced menu
  • Laundry and domestic services

Contact us for more information or to arrange a visit to any of our care homes.

Palliative care NHS funding

The Government is committed to every person nearing the end of their life receiving attentive, high-quality, compassionate care and for their wishes in their final weeks to be respected.

It may be possible to have the costs of palliative care at home covered by the NHS who are committed to funding care for those who need it in their final weeks and months.

You may think that you won’t qualify due to the value of your estate, but end of life palliative care is different and is generally funded by the NHS.
