Being cared for at home is a preferred choice for a lot of people with long term or terminal illness. The choice to die peacefully in familiar surroundings of your own home, comforted by loved ones and experienced clinical staff.
For someone with a terminal illness it is a difficult time for themselves and for their friends and family. Therefore personalised end of life care at home makes the whole process more comfortable rather than distressing.
Our carers can help you manage your symptoms and any treatment side effects, such as nauseas, fatigue, shortness of breath or difficulty sleeping. Many people with a terminal illness that has progressed to an advanced stage may be cared for at home.
It’s a matter of planning and organising a package a care to to suit.
Bluewood Healthcare will also work closely with your doctors, nurses and any other health professionals to make sure you receive the best care possible.
