At Compassionate Herts we know that given a choice many individuals would prefer to remain in their own home right to the end, however for both them and their families the fear, emotional hurdles and practicalities of caring for someone at this stage of life can be challenging. Reflecting this, we provide an experienced Supportive, or Palliative, Care Service to support clients and their loved ones at home.
The Palliative Care Team recognises that due to medical advances, people with serious illnesses are often living in poorly conditions for longer. Compassion, dignity and respect in these circumstances is a priority in the care we provide.
We always provide the highest quality care and support possible, to mirror that of the highly respected Hospice movement. Our service has been designed to complement other palliative care teams and hospices often involved in the person’s end-of-life care.
Support from 2 to 24 hour care, enabling freedom of choice and flexibility in conjunction with the multi discipline palliative community care team.
With over a decade of experience, we aspire to add life to days and enable clients and their families to fulfil their choices.
As part of the training our team members receive, they are taught to respect and follow the differing cultural needs of clients approaching end of life.
Our highly committed team have a passion for making a difference to the lives of the people we support — alongside our robust induction training, our team also complete our specialist End Of Life Care training and are continuously mentored and supported.
