Palliative care

At Thornbury Nursing, our nurses and healthcare assistants deliver palliative care at home for those living across England and Wales.

We regularly support both private clients and public sector representatives. Our experienced nurses and healthcare assistants are available when someone is returning from hospital or a hospice, or when someone needs additional care at home to prevent admission, even at short notice.

Providing palliative care in the home

We regularly provide palliative care to people in their own homes, where they can be surrounded by those that they cherish.

As this time can be incredibly difficult for the whole family, our nurses and healthcare assistants are there to give the physical and emotional support that is needed. We take care of any clinical needs so that families can focus on spending time together.

As palliative care can continue for months or even years, we are able to support people in their own homes for as long as is needed.

Palliative care case study

We were contacted directly by the family of an individual requiring palliative care. They required nursing support to ensure their relative could still enjoy family time. Our client was still keen to retain as much normality to their life as possible and our nurses respected this, ensuring discreet and professional care always. We continued to support this client until they passed away a few months later. The family were extremely grateful for our support and that they were able to spend invaluable time with their loved one knowing that he was in the best hands.
