Palliative care at home

How does it work?

Hi JG1964,

Welcome to the Sue Ryder Online Community.

Palliative care aims to manage symptoms and improve quality of life and may be given by a variety of different healthcare professionals, depending on someone’s needs.

Here is some more information about palliative and end of life care and who provides them: http://www.nhs.uk/Planners/end-of-life-care/Pages/what-it-involves-and-when-it-starts.aspx

Could you tell us any more about your situation? Have you or a loved one been referred to a palliative care team?

Marie Curie have a helpline, which can give expert information about palliative care: 0800 090 2309. Today (Saturday) it will be open 11am-5pm.

I’m glad you’ve found our community, as there are lots of other members here with experience of palliative care. If you’d like to talk more about your situation, they will be really supportive and understanding.
