Specialist end of life or Palliative care

You are here

Why choose Agincare end of life care at home?

It can be one of the most difficult decisions deciding where you or a loved one will live out the rest of their lives, at Agincare we aim to make this process as simple and straightforward as possible during a very difficult time. By choosing Agincare palliative care at home allows you or your loved one to be surrounded by their own belongings and memories in a familiar and safe environment. We ensure that our bespoke service is flexible and we have a rapid response so we can often have a care worker in place within 48 hours of the initial inquiry. Our bespoke plans cater exactly to each individual in our care and our highly trained staff are on hand to offer peace of mind, advice and emotional support not only to those in our care but to the family and friends of the individual. We are also equipped to care for those with mobility impairments that may require a second care worker to ensure the wellbeing and safety of an individual. In these cases, we work with the local domiciliary care service to provide a secondary care worker or provide an additional live-in care worker to ensure that those in our care are properly and safely cared for.

The benefits of end of life care

At Agincare we understand that the decision to have end of life live-in care is one of the most difficult decisions to make. We want to be sure that anyone in our care is comfortable and looked after in the final days of their life. The biggest benefit of the palliative care that we offer is that individuals can spend their final days in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. They are not in a care home bed that is not theirs surrounded by a few of their possessions; they have everything they could want or need in their own surroundings. Being in their own home also means that friends and family can easily visit their loved one in a familiar environment and are not limited to certain times of the day or only allowing a certain number of people in a room. Our care team make sure that each individual receives a bespoke plan of care that is flexible as we understand that no two people are the same as so no two people require the exact same care. We are also on hand to provide peace of mind and support to the friends and family of the individual in our care.

Our end of life care services

Agincare provides care and support to people who have a terminal illness or a progressive, long-term condition, that have made the decision that they wish to live out the remainder of their life in the comfort and security of their own home, rather than in a hospice or hospital. We understand that end of life care is perhaps the most difficult subject to discuss for all those involved and approach this with professionalism, sensitivity, and empathy. We treat those in our care with respect and compassion, ensuring they are comfortable and free from any distressing symptoms while being in the comfort of their own home surrounded by memories and loved ones. We make sure that we cater each of our care plans to each individual's needs and ensure that they are happy and safe in their home. We can perform services including:

Bespoke end of life care plan

We offer a free, no obligation care assessment in order to understand the needs and wants of those that are to be entrusted to our care. From this initial assessment, we can then create a bespoke plan using the expertise of District Nursing Teams, Occupational Therapists, and Palliative care teams alongside the individual who will be in our care and their family. The care plan will fully take into account the individual's wishes, preferences, and spiritual beliefs as well as their medical and social care needs. We will ensure that comfort, companionship, symptom control, including pain relief, personal care and nutrition, is provided as part of our holistic care provision, by our experienced and knowledgeable staff team.

Training our carers

We at Agincare believe that our teams of dedicated care workers are our most important assets when it comes to providing top quality and personal care to all of the individuals in our care. We provide quality and thorough training to ensure that all of our carers are entirely focused and able to handle any situation in a respectful and caring manner. Specialist training is provided to staff through various means to enhance their skills and knowledge throughout their career with Agincare, to continually better meet the needs of the people we are caring for.

We believe in good care
