It should always be your choice
Palliative care is a specific service we offer to patients who are critically or terminally ill. Our aim is to provide the best quality of life for everyone involved. As part of this, we recognise the need to provide pain relief both in terms of physical and mental stress.
Being at home also has distinct advantages not just for your family but for friends as well. It is easier for people to visit and will mean less disruption for everyone. The specialist care we provide is very flexible. If your condition does change, we can adapt the level of support you receive.
“Concerned for my wellbeing. Respectful, Friendly helpful to assist. Always ask if they can do anything else at the end of the call. If I had a complaint, I know it will be listened to and action taken from it.”
— P. Burnham
