Care provided in the last twelve months of life is regarded as end of life (palliative) care. Some people will benefit from palliative care before this time.
We can support you and your family to cope with the difficult days to come, from diagnosis through to the end of life.

Here is what one of our client’s family had to say:
“The support and care they provide for families coping with a loved one requiring one to one companionship and/ or nursing care is excellent. We had their help recently when my husband was diagnosed with dementia and Motor Neurone disease, He was given amazing and thoughtful care and, importantly, respect was shown to him throughout his illness. We could not have coped without them, they were with us until my husband passed away and we all were so much stronger because of the support we were given. They go the extra mile and then some. Thank you.”
