Home Care Assistance

Palliative Care

Palliative care is best at home. When a loved one reaches the stage where curative treatment is no longer possible, a Home Care Assistance Carer can improve their end-of-life experience and help keep them in their familiar, home environment.

Keeping Comfortable

One-on-one companionship in the familiar environment of the home helps bring essential comfort and peace to an individual in this stage of life.

Turning to Prevent Bed Sores

Close attention to personal care is of utmost importance. Our Carers manage frequent bed turning to minimise bed sores and ensure comfort is achieved as much as possible.

Providing Companionship

Simply having someone there with your loved one around-the-clock, or on an as-needed basis, provides much needed comfort and compassion.

Preparing Meals

It’s common that one’s appetite will decrease, so it’s important to maintain the nutritional value of the food your loved one will consume. Our Carers are trained to prepare healthy meals based on the individuals needs and preferences.

Maintaining Personal Hygiene

We are committed to a dignified palliative experience in which we help people stay clean, groomed and maintain their hygiene.

Mediating Depression

Palliative patients can often feel, and become depressed or even experience feelings of abandonment. Our Carers know how to provide the emotional support needed at this time.

Providing Status Updates

Our Carers support the family and any medical team involved by providing status updates on the individuals condition.

Support for the Family after their Loved One Passes

Our Carers and Palliative Care team are experienced in providing appropriate support and resources to families after their loved one passes.

Choosing the right Home Care Provider
Not all home care businesses are alike. Some may not offer all the services and support you require, so it is important to understand who and what is best for you and your loved one. Our Home Care Company Checklist will assist with due diligence and selecting the right care requirements
