Palliative Care aims to improve the quality of life of patients and their families facing long-term or life limiting illnesses. At Clannad Care, our ultimate aim is to enable every person with an illness to live as well as possible, for as long as possible and to support their loved ones in that process. Research has shown that early referral to palliative care not only led to significant improvements in a patient’s quality of life and mood, they also survived longer compared with patients receiving standard care.
What is Palliative Care?
The ultimate aim of Palliative Care is to improve the quality of life of patients and their families facing life-threatening illnesses by the prevention and relief of suffering. Palliative care focuses on the treatment of pain and other problems, integrating the physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs of care. Palliative care offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible and also offers a support system to help the family cope during the patient’s illness
Benefits of Palliative Care
Our palliative home care team’s ultimate aim is to provide a tailored homecare services to that the patient can be assured of the best quality of life while living with their illness. To ensure the best possible plan is put in place, our Care Services Manager will meet you to discuss your individual needs and create a service plan to fit those needs.
Once the care is agreed our Care Services Manager will introduce a suitable carer to you based on the needs identified.
We understand that the family of the patient also needs support. With this in mind our palliative care team also makes family support a priority. As the patient’s illness progresses, the caregiving may need to be adjusted – we will consult the family for guidance and proceed with sensitivity as agreed.
