Palliative Care at Home
Delivery of palliative care in the home reduces unnecessary hospital admissions and the use of the NHS. It often enables the individual to remain in the familiar home environment or they may be better off in a hospice if nursing care is more a requirement. Funding can often be accessed if the patient remains at home as it is much cheaper than hospitalisation.
Palliative care involves a range of services delivered by a team of professionals that all have equally important roles to play – including the Deckchair home carers - physicians, nursing, support workers, paramedics, pharmacists, physiotherapists all in support of the patient and their family.
Person-centred Palliative Care
Deckchair care provide person-centered care with support from other health professionals, we pay special attention to the specific needs and preferences of the individual.
Why Palliative Care?
The majority of adults in need of palliative care have chronic diseases such as motor neuron disease (mnd), cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes. Many other conditions may require palliative care, including kidney failure, chronic liver disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, neurological disease and dementia.
Pain and difficulty in breathing are two of the most frequent and serious symptoms experienced by patients in need of palliative care.
