End of Life Care Services
Knowing what to expect when someone nears the end of their life is really important - both for the person who is ill and for their family and friends. Feelings of pain and loss are, of course, unavoidable, but having professional help and support can go a long way in helping prepare for the physical and emotional changes ahead.
Here at Direct Health we are committed to providing flexible, responsive and individually tailored end of life care to people in their own homes. Our Care and Support Workers play a vital, helping people to approach the end of their life with compassion and respect, maintaining their dignity whilst receiving care that is focused on their own choices. They are also invaluable to family and friends for much needed support and respite.
We understand that everyone’s needs are different and constantly changing and our care and support services are individually tailored to the needs of the customer and their carers. Our service can also be called upon at short notice to support people to return home from hospital as soon as possible.
Our end of life service will support you or your loved one to live at home, as comfortably as possible for as long as possible, and to die with dignity. Our Care Workers have received Specialist Training and work very closely with health professionals – our service also includes much needed emotional support and training for family members and informal Carers.
