Palliative Care in the Home
Be Independent Homecare palliative care services aim to provide the best quality home care support services for a terminally ill patient and their family.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines palliative care as ‘an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.’
