Palliative Care

What is Palliative Care?

If you have an illness that cannot be cured, palliative care makes you as comfortable as possible by managing your pain and other distressing symptoms. It also involves psychological, social and spiritual support for you and your family or carers.

Care planning & assessment

Every client that joins the Caritas Family is met by a member of our management team who will put together a care plan based on they requirements and will be personalised to the service user. Also, clients will receive regular phone calls and visits from management to ensure the service being provided is meeting expectations.
