What is End-of-life Care?

End-of-life care is a specialist service provided to individuals in the final stages of life. It is typically offered to those with a life expectancy of less than 12 months. It provides a vital layer of additional support to those in the latter stages of Cancer, Dementia, Parkinson’s, or any other terminal illness. Its primary focus is on comfort and pain management with the overall aim of maximising quality of life.

Why choose End-of-life Care at home?

Receiving End-of-Life Care at home is often a far better option than moving into a hospice. It allows you to continue living where you feel most safe and comfortable, in your home surrounded by friends and family. Care at home can be highly personalised; you will receive a one-to-one service and only pay for the care you need.

Testimonials

Feedback From Our Customers

Our relationship with the carer, who comes every morning, is very good. She is always on time to bathe and dress my wife. She and her manager are always very helpful and can’t do enough for us. They are wonderful people, and a credit to Clarity Home Care.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

End-of-life care is typically provided when someone is expected to live for less than 12 months. This is often due to patients being in the later stages of a terminal illness or having experienced a traumatic incident like a stroke or heart attack.

Specialist End-of-life care is designed to make the final stages of a person’s life as comfortable and dignified as possible. Although end-of-life care is highly focused on pain management and comfort, it also caters to other vital needs by providing personal care, companionship, and support with domestic duties such as meal preparation and cleaning.

End-of-life care is more concentrated towards pain management and comfort. It is typically provided to individuals in the final stages of life. In contrast, Palliative Care can provide support at any stage of a life-limiting or life-threatening illness or injury. The type of care required will likely escalate from Palliative to End-of-life towards the final stages of life.

In most cases, End-of-life care commences when a person is estimated to have less than 12 months of life remaining. However, End-of-life care can last for as little as an hour or as long as several years, depending on how quickly the individual’s condition deteriorates.

The NHS typically funds end-of-life care in the UK through NHS continuing healthcare. This should be discussed with your GP or the doctor in charge of your treatment. If eligible for NHS funding, you can choose to have this funding as a personal health budget.

This allows you more control over how the funding is spent. For example, if you would like to receive End-of-life care at home, you can use your health budget to fund this.

If you are not entitled to funding from the NHS, the cost of end-of-life care can be paid for privately or potentially covered by a charitable organisation.
