End of life care at home

Whether a person is approaching the end of their life or dealing with a life-limiting disease, we believe everyone deserves to receive the care they require in a place they feel most safe and at ease. For many people, this means in the comfort of their home. That’s why we provide end of life care at home. 

In this blog post, we explore home care in Manchester and the surrounding area, focussing on the benefits of receiving end of life care at home. Read on to discover how end of life care at home can support you and your family during this difficult time.

What is end of life care?

End of life care is professional support provided to those nearing the last years or months of life. It allows a person to live as well as possible during their final moments and then die with dignity. We believe every person has the right to receive care and spend their final moments where they want to be. Rather than moving into a care home, hospital or hospice, many people prefer to remain in the familiarity of their home, surrounded by pets, memories and loved ones and that’s why we provide end of life care at home. 

To support you, our compassionate carers will create a care plan that takes into account your needs, desires and preferences. Each person’s journey is unique and we believe there is no one size fits all solution when it comes to caring. Our bespoke packages ensure you receive the care you deserve in the place you want to receive it. 

Benefits of end of life care at home

There are many benefits that end of life care at home provides. One of the key advantages is that it eliminates the need to move into a hospital or care home to receive the care required. This eases the process for all involved, allowing your loved one to enjoy the time they have left surrounded by those dearest to them, including beloved family, friends and pets.

Our services support people through a challenging and perhaps distressing time, helping them live their final moments with dignity. The ability to remain in the comfort of home while receiving respectful and professional care can bring peace of mind and provide a level of privacy that hospitals and other institutions simply can’t compete with.
