Private palliative care Services at home

Providing compassionate, empathetic palliative care that enables you to stay at home with your loved ones.

What is Palliative Care at home?

With palliative care at home, our customers receive the additional support they need throughout their prognosis with visits from a qualified carer within the environment they feel safest, and closest to their loved ones. This is usually guidance and support with coming to terms with their diagnosis, emotional and spiritual support, and assisting with any tasks that may now be too difficult for the individual to complete. At-home palliative care will usually require regular daily visits from a private palliative carer.

Here at Mayfair Care Agency we cover the whole of Worcester and its surrounding areas.

What does Palliative Care mean?

Palliative care is a service that is provided to someone that has been diagnosed with a terminal prognosis. This is when a condition has become untreatable, and the hospital can no longer provide effective treatment to cure the illness. Common illnesses requiring palliative care include dementia, cancer, or Parkinson’s.

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.

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, palliative care providers will work to create a plan for ongoing care to provide support to the individual and their family. Palliative care generally requires the provider to offer emotional and spiritual support, as well as endeavouring to mitigate the symptoms of their illness.

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 care implemented towards the end of life and offer treatment, care, and support for the individual and their family, but there is a difference.

Palliative care can begin at any time after a diagnosis, with some palliative care providers plans being in place for years. Contrastingly, 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 is the same service as palliative care, but while checked into a hospice facility.  Palliative home care is offered to an individual within the comfort of their own home with round-the-clock support from a palliative care provider.

The same level of care in a care facility requires the individual to remain at the hospice, receiving care from a team.
