What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care does not treat illness and it doesn’t offer a cure, rather it alleviates symptoms and suffering endured. Eden Care offers palliative care to help individuals and their loved ones through these difficult periods.

While all care is individual and particular to each client, there is a special intimacy being involved with clients and their families during end of life care. The rapport between client and carer and between carer and the family is more poignant, more personal.


Choice

Each of us has the right to choose where we wish to spend the last days of our lives. Many of us will choose to remain at home in familiar surroundings.  Eden Care facilitates that decision providing experienced carers to support you, enabling you and your family to make this choice.

We can design an end of life care plan with you and, where you wish it, your family or friends. Our care will then be tailored to meet your specific needs and preferences. We value and respect each client and their right to dignified care at this time of their lives.

Our trained and caring team will be with you every step of the way, working with health professionals and others involved in your care and support to manage your symptoms, maintain your dignity and keep you or your loved one as comfortable as possible.
