Palliative Care Services
If your parent or loved one has been told that they will need end of life care, also known as palliative care, we can provide support to enable you and your family to make the appropriate choices. Palliative care includes providing treatment to manage pain and other physical symptoms resulting from a terminal or complex illness.
At Yorkshire and Humber Healthcare Alliance, we believe people have a right to choose where to spend the last days; for many, this will be at home in familiar surroundings. Within our Palliative care service, we provide specialist and professional support; we want you to have full reassurance that we can take care of your loved one.
Retain Quality of Life
Putting your loved one’s care in our hands can be daunting; however, we are able to develop a custom health plan to ensure specific needs are met, and both you and your loved one are entirely comfortable. Palliative home care is becoming a more and more popular option among those looking to stay in their home environment during their final years or months, without disruption or upheaval. The type of care we focus on enables us to provide physical and emotional support to someone living with a terminal illness; our main objective is to relieve symptoms and improve quality of life. We aim to help you achieve the best quality of life for your loved ones whilst supporting you during this emotional period of time.

Supporting Your Family
Included within our palliative care service, our team will strive to make sure you are comfortable with the care provided. We also communicate and support you and your family throughout this difficult time; we understand the need for extra emotional support or even respite time to process the situation. We also offer a respite care service, which can benefit you and your family, especially when providing palliative care at home, which allows you to take an emotional break or have some time for yourself for as long as you need. Our service involves directing people to the relevant people for chaplaincy, bereavement support and financial support, should it be required.
