What Sheffield Palliative Care Services are available?
When you are living with a life-limiting or terminal disease you will most likely be offered palliative care, which will encompass any medications or treatments you’re offered to make your condition as manageable as possible. While there’s no ‘cure’ for the condition you’re living with, the palliative care pathway doesn’t mean you’re about to die; in fact, many people receive palliative care for years before they approach the end of their life. Previously, when people embarked on palliative care in Sheffield it was traditionally given in hospital, a nursing home or hospice, however more and more people are now electing to remain in their own home for palliative care, knowing they will be in the place they want to be for as long as possible. We can offer palliative care on either a visiting or live-in basis, depending on your care needs and the severity of your condition.
End of Life Care Options in Sheffield
As your palliative care journey progresses it will become clear to your healthcare team just how well you’ve responded to treatment and how long your journey may be. When it’s become clear that there are no more treatments or therapies to be offered then you may be considered to be approaching the end of your life, which will usually last from a few days to a few weeks. As this time approaches it may not just be you who requires extra support to come to terms with your prognosis but your loved ones as well. Our compassionate Sheffield care team will be able to support those around you emotionally too, as they try to imagine how life will continue, meaning that your practical and holistic needs are supported and so are your family’s.
