Forward Planning

Forward planning is vital and contrary to belief Palliative care can be implemented before the last year of life when considering degenerative conditions such as dementia. 

We provide Palliative care for many conditions including, but not limited to:

Dementia 

Cancer

Age related frailty

COPD

Our Care Team

Our highly trained, specialist staff are here to ensure  support plans are implemented and medication prompting, personal care and eating and drinking are enabled.  Our support team also support with psychological, emotional and spiritual needs at this time. The support required for the loved ones of the person we are supporting is also integrated into  personal support plans. 

The support provided at this time may be dictated by the condition or illness and as such the support we provide it tailored to the individual’s needs. Our interventions and support can help to keep the people we support at home with loved ones and family as they near the end of their life, instead of having to move to a residential facility or hospital.

 

Homecare Scotland meticulously screen and select our staff for their experience and qualifications and their caring dispositions. It is vital that the people we support feel comfortable with the staff provided and as such you will have a say in who is chosen to support you.
