Palliative care is for people living with a terminal illness where a cure is no longer possible and who are in the last weeks, months or years of their life.
End of life care aims to allow people to live as well as possible and to pass away with dignity. A carer can help support the client’s family and other people who are important to the client during this time.
How home palliative care can help?
Many terminally ill patients wish to spend their final few weeks or months in their own home and home carers enable this to happen. Your loved one can receive end of life care tailored to their needs and preferences in their own home.
End of life care aims to make your loved one as comfortable as possible by managing pain and other distressing symptoms. This is a holistic approach, providing physical, psychological, social, and spiritual support for your loved one, your family, and their carers.
Additional palliative care can be provided by consultants trained in palliative medicine, specialist palliative care nurses or specialist palliative occupational therapists and physiotherapists, with whom your carer will work alongside at all times.
All care givers at Midian Care have palliative care expertise, and have worked with terminally ill clients, in their own home, alongside other palliative care professionals. The carers work to maintain client comfort and dignity throughout these latter stages of life.
