Palliative

Diginifed, experienced and professional palliative care in the home

It is one of the life’s certainties that one day, each of us, will pass away. For some, circumstances may mean that families and friends can make the necessary arrangements to ensure that loved ones are as comfortable as possible in familiar surroundings during this final stage of life. When a person makes such health care directives for themselves it is known as an Advanced Health Directive (AHD).

Palliative care is a particular type of end of life care. It is provided for people who have a progressive, active and advanced illness, with little or no prospect of cure. The aim of palliative care is to achieve the best possible quality of life for the person, their family and carers. It focuses on 'living' well until death regardless of whether the person has an AHD or not.

DIAL-AN-ANGEL® offers assistance to those who choose to spend their last days in their own home. Our highly experienced Angels® ensure that your loved one is as comfortable, peaceful and reassured as possible whilst also providing support for families and loved ones. Our services are available over long and short-term periods and include providing feedback on the person’s pain-levels to assigned medical practitioners.

We are able to tailor services to meet your specific requirements, DIAL-AN-ANGEL provides end-of-life support to people of any age that have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Some of the more common illnesses requiring palliative care include cancer, HIV/AIDS, motor neurone disease, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and end-stage dementia. Our Angels aim to provide physical, emotional and spiritual support for those at the end of life in order to make the process as comfortable as possible.

Support for carers

Caring for someone approaching the end of their life can be emotionally draining. It is very important to take time to look after yourself, to help you stay fit, healthy and relaxed. That’s where our respite care services can help carers as well.
