Terminal Illness

Also known as Terminal Care or Palliative Care; this can be a very difficult time for the client and their family who are going through this profound experience. However, with sensitive, thoughtful care, it can be made enriching.

OxleyCare will send out carers with nursing backgrounds or extensive experience to care for clients at the end of their lives. Many of our carers have told us what a privilege it is to be with a client and their family at this time.

Our aim is to provide sensitive and gentle care, mindful of the client’s medical needs but also of the importance of enabling clients to reflect and communicate while staying in the comfort of their own familiar surroundings.

Our carers will work closely with the Palliative Care or Hospice team in providing a secure and loving atmosphere for the whole family.
