Palliative Care

Choosing palliative care in the home has become an increasingly popular choice for people with a life-limiting or terminal illness. When people express their desire to avoid hospitalisation, palliative care can be provided by the team at Care1 to ensure their best quality of life.

What is palliative care and why is it a popular choice?

Different from end-of-life care, palliative care can be beneficial at all stages of an illness and does not mean that there is no hope for recovery. Many people are engaging with active care at the same time they are having palliative care.

The familiar home setting provides clients with a sense of familiarity, security and independence, which are all important factors in high-quality care outcomes.

At Care1 our palliative care aims to look after the emotional, spiritual, physical and social needs of a person with an incurable illness. We recognise that it is a time where choices about the types of treatments available are incredibly important and personal, and we support our clients with whatever those choices may be.
