Getting end of life / palliative care at home

Delivering expert, compassionate end of life care which allows you or a loved one to remain at home

If you are nearing end of life or you are diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, you may think that you have to move away from home.

This is not necessarily the case, as both palliative care and end of life care can be provided to people at home. However, the same services you would be able to receive in a hospital or hospice may not be available in your own home. Receiving care at home allows you to stay where they feel most comfortable and safe, surrounded by memories created over the years and the people you love.

Anyone approaching the end of their life is entitled to high-quality care, whether they want to be cared for at home, in a care home, hospice or hospital. You have a right to be cared for where you want, and where you want to spend your final moments.

End of life care and palliative care are tailored to the wishes of the individual to help the dying person live as well as possible until their last moments and die with dignity.

Palliative care at home

After someone has been diagnosed with a serious or terminal illness, palliative care focuses on managing the physical and emotional symptoms of the condition for both the patient and their loved ones.

Palliative care takes a holistic approach and aims to improve the quality of life as much as possible for both the person with the illness and their family and friends. When you start to receive palliative care, a team made up of your GP, community nurses, social care workers and specialists will be the ones visiting you regularly.
