Palliative care is undertaken when you’re diagnosed with a life-limiting condition, however it doesn’t mean you’re about to pass away. Depending on your condition, it is possible to be on the palliative care pathway for months or even years before your condition significantly deteriorates.
While palliative care won’t offer the possibility of a cure, you will nevertheless be offered treatments, as well as therapies that will let you live as comfortably as possible. Our Cornwall home care team are dedicated and will ensure you live your best quality of life for as long as you can.
Your palliative care journey focuses on your holistic well-being, meaning your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are the priority. As you approach the end of your palliative journey, you are considered to be needing end-of-life care, which will focus on keeping you comfortable, peaceful, and pain-free.
By remaining in the home you love for your care, you can be in familiar and comforting surroundings, with family, friends and pets close to you throughout.
Sustaining our customers’ best quality of life for as long as possible is our carers’ main aim, and that is what they will do for you every single day. They’ll ensure your preferences and needs are met fully, thanks to your personalised support plan detailing exactly how you like things done.
