Palliative care is the journey of care that you receive when you’re living with a life-limiting or terminal illness. Palliative care will exist alongside any treatments you are having for your illness and may continue for years – receiving palliative care does not mean you’re going to die soon. Our friendly and professional home care in Peterborough team can support you with all aspects of your care, whether as a standalone service or as part of your multi-agency palliative care team, and can care for you on either a visiting or live-in basis.
When your treatments are complete and it becomes clear that there is no more that can be offered to try and halt your decline, you may be placed on to end of life care. This is still part of the palliative care pathway but means that you are now entering your last few weeks or days. Our compassionate carers can be with you throughout the whole of your care journey, right to the very end if you would like them to be, and we’ve cared for many thousands of people to the end of their life over the last 30 years. Our fully-managed Peterborough service will ensure that you and your family are supported both physically and emotionally for what you are experiencing, and we believe in a person-centred, holistic approach to your care that ensures you will take into account your spiritual and social wishes for the end of your life too.
Remaining in your own home for palliative care will be beneficial on a physical and emotional level, as not only do you get to be with the people and pets you love, you’re also in the home that means the world to you, rather than an anonymous room elsewhere. You’ll be supported by a team of local carers who you’ll get to know and welcome as friends, and as your condition deteriorates you can also receive care from our team of clinical nurses, if necessary. It’s impossible to put a value on being in the place that means everything to you, and being able to look out of the window at a view you’ve enjoyed for years or smelling the roses that you planted decades before can make such a difference to living, and dying, well.
Our wholly managed care services will take care of every detail for you in a dignified manner; they’re also accompanied by a personalised support plan that will detail every aspect of your care and how you wish it to be carried out. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can always be confident that we’ll deliver the very highest standards of care. We also offer live in care in Peterborough.
Call us seven days a week to discuss care options for you or your loved ones, in Peterborough and the surrounding areas. If you’d prefer to contact us via our website then that’s no problem, and we’d be happy to call you back too.
