Palliative care/ end-of-life

End Of Life Palliative Care in Nottingham

Palliative care involves assisting with treatment and supporting patients who have ongoing or long-term illnesses such as dementia, cancer, cardiovascular or respiratory disease, AIDS, diabetes, and other life-threatening or fatal diseases. It is a method that increases the quality of life and attempts to keep a person pleasant and respectable during illness while being supported by other health care experts, such as physicians and nurses. This form of care focuses on improving the standard of living for the person and their loved ones. Palliative care differs from end-of-life care in that it is provided to patients of all ages and does not necessarily occur at the end of a patient’s life.

Although some people choose to get palliative end of life care at an inpatient hospice or a residential nursing home, having access to palliative care in the comfort of one’s own home is becoming an increasingly common alternative. A growing number of people are opting to receive palliative care in the privacy and familiarity of their own homes because it is important to them to stay in the setting in which they are happiest.  And we are well qualified to provide such care.
