What is palliative care at home?

Palliative care at home is specialised medical care for people living with a serious illness. Our palliative care service focuses on relieving and preventing the suffering of patients, to improve the quality of life for patients and their families, no matter the diagnosis or stage of the disease. Palliative care at home is provided by a team of doctors, nurses and other specially trained people. We work together to provide you the support you need, whilst enabling you to maintain the place you feel most comfortable, your home.

What do Firstpoint Homecare palliative carers do?

Firstpoint Homecare aim to help manage the client’s symptoms as well as promote dignity, comfort and choice. We ensure that our carers have suitable experience and offer them extra specialist training, to enable them to recognise and provide the care required for your individual needs.
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. An important part of palliative care is the patient talking about their diagnosis, treatment and needs and working together with your family and Firstpoint Homecare so that we can ensure you get care that works for you.
