Palliative and End of Life Live in Care

Independent People Homecare specialises in providing palliative live in care services.

When approaching the end of their life, the majority of people will prefer to remain in their own home. Filled with warm memories and brimming with happy nostalgia from years gone by, the home is a safe place that’s free from threats and distressing distractions. If you are looking for a high level of support without the typical restrictions of a hospital or care home, we would highly recommend choosing a live in carer to deliver palliative care for your loved one.

All of the palliative live in carers employed by Independent People Homecare have been extensively trained in how to deliver the best possible support to those who have been diagnosed with terminal conditions. They can of course assist with routine domestic tasks, including meal planning, cleaning and laundry, but they are also on hand to provide companionship and emotional support to the service user.

 

Having a calm, compassionate professional available around the clock can provide invaluable reassurance to those approaching the end of their life, and the chosen carer will understand the importance of preserving the individual’s dignity and privacy during their palliative care – something that can make all the difference.  

In some cases, specialist medical care will be required in order to ensure the service user is as comfortable as possible. If necessary, our team can also help you organise any necessary adaptations to the individual’s home. All you need to do is ask and we’ll be happy to assist. If you are looking for a live in carer in response to an emergency care escalation then we are very often able to help at short notice.

Supporting Friends and Family


Our home carers recognise that this is a challenging time for friends and family. As well as carrying out all manner of duties around the home to keep the environment clean, safe and calm, your palliative care assistant will be on hand to provide emotional support for all of those affected by the circumstances.

Our palliative live in care solutions are highly flexible and can be tailored to your precise needs. If you or another member of your family is the main care-giver, but would like respite from their duties, we can provide end of life care on a short-term or temporary basis. In essence, we can be here to plug in the gaps and help primary carers cope with the demands that have been placed on them.
