Palliative Care

Palliative Care is an area of healthcare that focuses on relieving and preventing the suffering of patients. Firstpoint Homecare has a wealth of experience in supporting the treatment of those with curable illnesses and those living with chronic diseases.

Firstpoint Homecare aim to help manage the client's symptoms as well as promote dignity, comfort and choice. We ensure that our carers who look after our palliative care clients have suitable experience and offer them extra specialist training, to enable them to recognise and provide the care required.

To ensure that our clients receive the care they require we work closely with the client’s family, friends, support network and all healthcare professionals involved including: District Nurses, GP’s, Macmillan Nurses, Marie Curie and other specialists.
