If we were able to choose, most of us would opt to die peacefully in the familiar, friendly surroundings of our own home, comforted by the presence of those we love and those who are close to us. The end of life care offered by Respectful Care makes it possible to pass away peacefully at home, rather than in a hospice or residential care home. For someone with a terminal condition - and for their family and friends - sensitive, personalised end of life care at home makes the whole process more comforting and less distressing.
For those with a terminal illness that has progressed to an advanced stage, it can be reassuring to know they will be cared for in their own home. Respectful Care can plan and organise a care programme that efficiently deals with issues such as healthcare tasks and all other associated end of life needs.
We can also take care of any related needs that your loved one may have during such a difficult period – everyday activities such as washing and toilet arrangements, helping clients in and out of bed if they are sufficiently mobile, carrying out light domestic duties, shopping, cooking and so on, all needs to be taken care of. Respectful Care staff can ensure that these duties are carried out, leaving the client to spend their final days doing what they want to do with the people they love. A member of our care team can even live in, if required, so that 24-hour assistance is always at hand.
Everything is dealt with according to the specific wishes of our client. We can deal with any healthcare requirements, and communicate fully with all other people involved, such as relatives, friends and medical professionals. We strive to ensure that our client's dignity is maintained at all times; our overall objective is to provide the very best care we can, in order to make the closing stages of our client's life as comfortable as it can possibly be.
