What Blackpool Palliative Care Services are Available?
If you or a loved one are living with a serious or terminal illness, such as types of dementia or advanced cancer, it’s likely that at some point you’ll require palliative care. Palliative care is a particular branch of care that focuses primarily on managing the symptoms of your condition, reducing your pain levels and helping you to feel as comfortable as possible. Palliative care can often last for years, which is why an increasing number of people are now opting to receive it in their own home rather than move to a nursing home or a hospice. Remaining at home for palliative care allows you to stay enjoy familiar surroundings and gives you much more flexibility over what level of support you receive.
Our dedicated Blackpool care team are able to provide you with a bespoke package of palliative care that supports your specific needs and wishes. As your condition changes or progresses, we can adapt your care plan to suit, and receiving care from a private home care provider rather than a residential home or an agency means you have increased flexibility over things like meals, visitors and routines. Your care plan will be designed to your preferences to ensure you can feel as independent, comfortable and supported as possible.
