Palliative care at home

Looking for end of life or palliative care at home? Then our highly experienced carers are here to help.

What is palliative care at home?

If you or a family member are suffering with a terminal condition or illness it is often a difficult time for both you and your loved ones. For those with a life threatening illness, being at home within familiar surroundings, having the opportunity to be close to family, friends and pets and enjoying favourite meals can provide contentment and happiness at the time you need it most.

Novus Care’s palliative care at home service aims to support you during this challenging time and ensure that you remain comfortable within your own home environment. Our palliative care workers, through their experience and sensitivity, will work to support you and your loved ones through the end of life experience to ensure you receive the highest quality of life possible. We will work with you and your family to put in place a flexible care plan that adapts to your requirements as and when they change and will work in partnership with other health care professionals to ensure a consistent & seamless approach to your care.

What is the difference between end of life and palliative care?

End of life care is for care and support for those who are in the last few months or years of their life or if their treatment hasn’t worked. End of life care ensures loved ones enjoy the highest quality care and support and spend their remaining days living with dignity all in the comfort of their own home.  They may receive palliative care before this over many months, but they are likely to need the most care as they are approaching their remaining time.

What are the benefits of palliative care at home?

Research has proven that given the choice the majority of us would choose to remain in our own home rather than a hospice or nursing home. After all, home is where the heart is and one of the main benefits of private palliative care at home is allowing you or your loved one to spend their remaining days at home with the care and support of a professional live in carer who is specialised in providing palliative care.

  • Helps loved ones live as normal a life as possible
  • External care professionals are able to visit
  • Reassuring for families as someone is there 24/7
  • One-to-one personalised care
  • Palliative care at home provides, privacy, confidentiality and ultimately peace of mind
  • They are in a familiar surroundings rather than a foreign environment which can cause stress and anxiety
