What Greenwich Palliative Care Services are Available?
For more than 30 years, we have been supporting thousands of families to live an independent and content life in their own homes. We provide different types of care to support our customers with their conditions, including palliative care.
Palliative care is designed to support people who are living with a terminal or life-limiting condition. Those who may require palliative care include people living with cancer, dementia or heart failure. This specialised care allows us to provide you with a better quality of life, for as long as possible.
We understand that living with a terminal illness can be distressing for you and your loved ones, which is why our Greenwich care team is here to support your family too. So, whether you live with your partner, parents or children, our carers will be by your side every step of the way – no matter what.
End of Life Care Options in Greenwich
When your palliative care journey comes to an end and your condition begins to deteriorate, end-of-life care can be arranged. This is when someone is approaching the final weeks or days of their life. It is naturally an upsetting time for you and your loved ones, but end-of-life care allows you to pass away with dignity and respect in your own home.
Spending your time at home allows you to remain in a safe and comfortable environment. You’ll be close to your family, friends and cherished possessions – all of which will help benefit your wellbeing.
Whether you choose our visiting-care package, with regular home visits or 24-hour care with our live-in care package, our carers will work hard to make sure your care is carried out the way you want. So, whether you want to ensure your room is kept the way you like or need help with pain relief, we will be there to provide you with the support you require, whenever you need it.
Why Choose our Greenwich Palliative Care Team?
Our Greenwich care team will be by your side throughout your care journey, so you can feel at ease and concentrate on spending time with your loved ones. Our local care manager will be on hand if your symptoms change or need attention from the medical team. Our care plans are flexible, so any changes can be made to suit your requirements.
Our carers go through an intensive training programme and there are specific carers that are provided with palliative care training, so they can provide you and your loved ones with the emotional and physical support you need.
We are also regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales. This simply means our care services are regularly monitored and inspected to ensure we are delivering the highest quality of care.
