What Malvern Palliative Care Services are Available?
Palliative care is usually referred to as the time when a person who is living with a life-limiting illness is embarking on a course of treatments and therapies that will enable them to live their best quality of life for as long as possible. While unfortunately not usually a cure, therapies received will enable the person to live a better quality of life and they’ll receive treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy which may enable them to live for much longer than originally anticipated. Indeed, people receiving palliative care can often do so for years before any significant degrading of the condition takes place. More and more people in the Malvern area are looking to receive palliative care at home nowadays, mainly because it enables you to remain in the home you love, surrounded by family and pets and precious memories. It is certainly a positive alternative to having to leave your home and reside in a hospital, hospice or care home environment and receiving palliative care at home will still see you receiving the highest quality of care, delivered by a multidisciplinary team of community care specialists. These can include your GP, community nurses and your Helping Hands carers, who can come to you on either a visiting or live-in basis.
