End of Life Care at Home

We know and have experience that when faced with a life limiting disease or illness most people would prefer to remain at home where they feel comfortable, in control and surrounded by their loved ones and belongings. It is a very emotional time for everyone involved and our Care Companions are here to support you and your family at this emotional time. End of life care refers, not only to a person in the final hours or days of their lives, but more broadly care of all those with a terminal condition that has become advanced, progressive, and incurable. End of life care includes palliative care. If you have an illness that can’t be cured, palliative care makes you as comfortable as possible, by managing your pain and other distressing symptoms. It also involves psychological, social and spiritual support for you and your family.

At Ashwell Home Care Services, we appreciate that when time is limited there is a need to be in an environment which is warm, caring and safe, one which is full of the things that you want around you. We understand that this may be a time when difficult questions may have to be asked and you and your loved ones may be faced with difficult decisions. We also recognise that by talking about and identifying End of Life wishes in advance, plans can be made which ensure a peaceful and dignified passing.

At Ashwell Home Care Services, we will make sure that your days are dignified and will work closely with external agencies to make sure you are pain free. We will treat you and your loved ones with compassion, respect and empathy. We work closely with external agencies to ensure that your End of Life wishes are carried out in a way which respects both your spiritual and cultural needs.
