Palliative Care at Home
We understand the intricacies and challenges of supporting a loved one with an advanced or life-limiting illness. Every day, our palliative care teams support clients and their families during this difficult time by giving them the opportunity to spend their last stages or final moments in their own home, surrounded by the people and things that they love.
Understanding the Palliative Care available to you or your loved ones
At Prestige Inhome Care, we can help facilitate the same level of support you would receive in a hospice or in a hospital, but provide you with more flexibility and choice. We do this by working alongside your GP and community palliative care team to provide a level of care that helps people stay at home.
Fulfilling a loved one’s wish to live out their days at home can be stressful, demanding and often overwhelming. The team at Prestige Inhome Care take care of everything so you can focus on things that are most important to you.
