Palliative live-in 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 care staff 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 care staff are dedicated to providing high-quality personal care. All our care staff 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 care worker at certain times if needed.

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

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.
