Palliative Home Care in Adelaide - Supporting Your Choices
Palliative Home Care Allows You To Choose The Way You Want To Live Toward The End Of Your Life
This is a sensitive time for you and your family and one that we understand very well. Our motto "You live life until you die" comes from our experiences with people at the end of their lives and supporting both them and their families to make this transition phase as sweet and serene as it can be.
We have more than 20 years experience in Palliative Care in Adelaide. When you stay in your familiar surrounds with your loved ones close by, Palliative Care will help make this time more intimate and personal. It is a time where the right balance of empathy and a practical approach to caring is needed for everyone involved.
"The care my husband received from the staff at Home Nursing solutions was incredible, he was able to stay in our home right up until the end. I will never forget the kindness and professionalism we were given."
Our Palliative Care Approach
Our team's palliative care approach is delivered with the understanding that “you live life until you die”. We will help you to manage these last weeks with your care being directed by you and guided by us, providing a program for pain management and easing symptoms so you can continue to live life as well as you can until your last moments.
Advanced Care Directives
You may wish to consider an Advance Care Directive which is a legal form that allows people over the age of 18 years to write down their wishes, preferences and instructions for future health care, end of life and living arrangements. It also allows them to appoint one or more Substitute Decision-Makers to make these decisions on their behalf when they are unable to do so themselves. An advanced care directive form will provide that additional comfort knowing that your wishes will be carried out to the end of life.
