What is End of Life Care?
End of life care is caring for someone during the later stages of a life-limiting illness such as cancer, motor neurone disease or dementia. At the earlier stages of diagnosis, you may have a developed an end of life care plan to ensure your loved one’s wishes are met and they can live as comfortably as possible in their final days.
End of life care includes looking after their physical and emotional wellbeing and ensuring they are treated with compassion and respect such as being kept clean, comfortable, safe and cared for with their pain managed.
End of Life Care At Home
