What is included in Private Palliative Care Services?
The tasks included in palliative care services range from light housekeeping, meal preparation and medication assistance to personal care, continence care and mobility assistance.
We advise speaking to your GP regarding the specific duties your carer will need to undertake, but generally, all of our palliative care patients can expect the following from Mayfair and other associated healthcare professionals:
A flexible care plan tailored to you
Emotional and spiritual support
Support for both the individual and their family
Support with coming to terms with the diagnosis
General support with tasks they may find too difficult
Help with easing the symptoms related to the illness
Offering comfort as little or often as required
Bereavement support for the family
When should someone be offered Palliative Care?
A person will be offered palliative care after a healthcare professional has concluded that a condition is no longer treatable. From there, our private palliative care services are available to you to help work directly with you to create a plan for ongoing care and provide the necessary support for the individual and their family.
End of Life Care vs Palliative Care
Palliative care and end of life care are often confused and do generally have similarities. Both care forms focus on support that’s implemented towards the end of life and offer treatment, care and assistance for the individual and their family, but there is a difference.
Palliative care can begin at any time after a diagnosis, with some of our palliative care at home plans being in place for years prior to passing. Contrastingly, our end of life care is usually implemented within what is expected to be the last year of an individual’s life.
Palliative Care vs Hospice Care
Hospice care offers the same service as palliative care, but while only checked into a hospice facility. Palliative care at home is offered to an individual within the comfort of their own home with additional support from a qualified carers and other Healthcare Professionals.
At-home palliative care for the elderly tends to be more personalised and tailored to the individual, with the same level of professional and compassionate care you’ll find in a hospice care facility. The latter often has a team of carers but requires the individual to remain at the hospice.
