How?

Recognising when a person may be in the last days of life

Our team are trained to understand when a person has come to the end of their journey. As this happens, we will gather information on any final needs and wants along with symptom tracking.

High levels of communication

Respectfully and if possible, we involve our clients in all stages of your end-of-life care. And should they wish - we make sure there is always a loved one present while decisions are being made. Plus, unless asked not to, we will explain everything to our clients and their support system every step of the way.

Shared decision-making

With you or your power of attorney, we make sure elements of the care plan is followed and respected. Should any changes need to be made, they will be done so with you and those important to you, to make sure any changes are fully understood.

Maintaining hydration

To keep you as comfortable as possible and in the level of care you require, we will check for any difficulties you may have. Such as when drinking, assessing your hydration levels and helping with cleaning your teeth and dentures. We also provide any necessary aid and guide your family members so they can help.

Pharmacological intervention

Our experience enables us to constantly reassess your final wishes along with considering whether it is right or wrong for you to continue taking prescribed medications. We’ll go through all the positives and negatives, so you and your loved ones are involved in these decisions.

Anticipatory prescribing

To keep you comfortable and in respect of your final days, we will assess your level of pain and symptoms and consider the anticipatory medicine options available to you. We will review this continually and adjust based on your individual needs and wishes.
