Watching a loved one go through a serious illness can be devastating, no matter how far along they are in their condition.
At LuxuryCare, we’re here to help families navigate the challenges of serious illness with respect, compassion, and understanding. By providing comprehensive support, we aim to help the person in our care live as comfortably as possible, for as long as possible.
Our nurse-led team supports the people we care for physically, emotionally, and spiritually, regardless of the stage or severity of their illness. We also support their loved ones through any difficulties they may be facing, helping them make the most of the time they have together.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is a type of medical care focused on improving the quality of life for people facing serious illnesses, such as cancer or heart disease. Its primary goal is to provide relief from the pain and stress that often accompany these illnesses.
Unlike hospice care, which is typically reserved for people with a life expectancy of six months or less, palliative care can be provided at any stage of a serious illness. It can be provided alongside curative treatment and is often used in conjunction with other medical therapies to manage symptoms and improve overall quality of life.
What Is LuxuryCare’s Approach to Palliative and End-of-Life Care?
Palliative care and end-of-life care, while closely related, serve different purposes within the healthcare continuum.
Palliative Care: This is a type of care focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of serious illness, with the goal to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative care is applicable at any stage of a serious illness, and can be provided alongside curative treatment. The objective is to alleviate pain and other distressing symptoms, provide psychological and spiritual care, and support patient autonomy and choice.
End-of-Life Care: This is a specific part of palliative care that focuses on the last days, weeks, or months of a person’s life, aiming to ensure the highest possible quality of life for a patient in their final stages. The focus shifts from curative treatment towards comfort-oriented care, including pain management, psychological support for the patient and family, and assistance in making difficult medical decisions.
In addition to our usual services, we also prioritise the well-being of families. Under certain circumstances, we can extend our support to provide necessities such as food and accommodation.
Our ultimate aim is to help individuals continue to enjoy the things that bring them happiness for as long as possible, whether that means spending time with family, engaging in hobbies, or simply enjoying the beauty of everyday life.
Our psychologists work closely with the people in our care to identify their emotional needs and develop a personalised plan to address them. They provide a safe and supportive space for people to express their feelings, process their experiences, and develop coping strategies to manage the challenges of their illness.
