We know how distressing it can be to experience the terminal illness of a loved one. Our compassionate team will support your service users, and their families, through one of life’s toughest challenges with expert and sensitive care at home.
What is palliative care?
Palliative care is specialist end-of-life support. Carers, specifically experienced in palliative care, will provide 24-hour care at the service user’s home. This can often be referred to as hospice at home.
The steadily increasing pressures within most ICBs won’t be making your job any easier, but we can. Following the highest standards of compliance, our dedicated team provides exceptional complex care within the comfort of people’s homes, helping to save costs, reduce waiting lists and free up vital hospital beds.
Why choose NLG?
Our team of highly-trained specialists will make the final days of the individual more comfortable and lessen the strain on the family. Importantly, our care enables the service user to remain in their own home, with family and close friends at their side.
As soon as the need arises, we step in to help, providing specialist support and quickly solving your problems. You can always rest assured that every expert carer supplied by NLG has been assessed to the high standards of the Care Quality Commission.
Even at such a difficult time, there can be many moments of light-heartedness and joy. That’s what we endeavour to bring by adding the human touch to day-to-day tasks, so all involved can make the most of this precious time together.
Support for the family
Care at home means less disruption for everybody. Round-the-clock support reduces the burden on family members who know they will be contacted as soon as the need arises.
What level of care do we provide?
With our unique tailored packages, we provide the precise level of support you need. This can range from a little extra help at certain times to full-time palliative care including administering medication, cooking meals and sharing memories over a cup of tea.
How quickly can palliative care be arranged?
How quickly would you like it? The need for palliative care can be sudden and urgent when circumstances change and an individual is in pain. In most cases, we can begin arranging care within 24 hours of you getting in touch.
Funded packages through the NHS
We regularly work with Continuing Healthcare (CHC) commissioners, including clinical leads and nurse assessors, to arrange full-time or visiting care for complex needs. Contact us for a no-obligation consultation to confirm final costs, with no hidden charges.
