Private Palliative Care Services for the Elderly at home

Stay surrounded by memories and familiarity at home, with our private palliative care. As distressing as a terminal illness may be, we ensure that you find comfort in being in your own home with the right level of care that’s compassionate and professional, supporting you and your loved ones to make the most of your time together.

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 often includes guidance and support with coming to terms with their diagnosis, any necessary emotional and spiritual support, as well as assisting with any tasks that may now be too difficult to complete unaided.

At Mayfair, our palliative care at home includes aiding in creating a plan for the various palliative care stages to better support each individual in making the most of every day and living as best they can. This includes regular daily visits from one of our qualified carers.

We cover the whole of Worcester and its surrounding areas, to ensure that you receive the best private palliative care possible.

What does Palliative Care mean?

Palliative care is a unique service that is provided to someone that has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. It’s a form of end of life care that is needed when a condition has become untreatable or the hospital can no longer provide effective treatment to cure the illness. Common illnesses that require palliative care include Alzheimer’s and dementia, cancer and Parkinson’s.

 

The Benefits of Palliative Care for the Elderly

Private Palliative care can provide relief from pain and other symptoms caused by a terminal illness or injury. It can also help improve the quality of life for individuals and their families by addressing and supporting their emotional, social and spiritual needs.

Palliative care for the elderly can also improve communication and coordination of care among doctors, nurses, carers and other health professionals who are involved in the care process. With Mayfair, our private palliative care can bring peace of mind to patients and their loved ones by supporting them to retain a better quality of life, right up until the very end.

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:

  • Mayfair care logo

  • Mayfair care logo

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.
