Support when you and your family need it most

Palliative care is similar to end-of-life or hospice care. In these scenarios, a healthcare team offers support to people living with serious or life-limiting illness. At Guardian Angel Carers, our trained CareAngels have the necessary training to assist our clients and their families at home. Performing tasks with the necessary compassion, you get the support you need during this difficult season in life.

Care that benefits patients

  • Your palliative care may require multiple healthcare professionals, but our clients know the value of including CareAngels in that team.

    We work with your other healthcare professionals, to ensure the patient receives the best care possible. And if your needs change over time, we can adjust our care plan.

  • Our trained CareAngels can provide palliative care at home for patients suffering from a range of different illnesses. Allow us to support you and help you manage, while you live with your condition.

    Our home care service allows you to do this without losing all independence, while being at home in the environment you love.

Feel good about help at home

Quality of life
is still possible

Some refer to palliative care as ‘supportive care’. For one thing, providing support to handle psychological and emotional stress is an essential part of this type of care. This type of stress is common for patients receiving diagnoses of serious illnesses.

In addition, you may need support facing physical discomfort and pain your condition causes you.

For this support and more, you can trust Guardian Angel Carers to provide friendly, compassionate care, at home. Working with your medical team, we offer emotional and practical support in the environment you feel comfortable in. As a result, patients can enjoy more quality of life despite facing a serious condition.

For assistance from diagnosis and as the condition progresses, talk to Guardian Angel Carers. We tailor your care plan to suit you.

When should you consider Palliative Care?

If you or someone you love receives a diagnosis of a serious illness, it can have an immense impact. Apart from your own life, it can change the lives of those around you.

While the illness affects your abilities, family members may have to provide more support.
Palliative care is a valuable resource in these situations, because it minimises some of the challenges everyone faces. Serious illnesses where patients often require palliative care include:

  • Dementia
  • Advanced forms of cancer
  • Motor-neuron disease
  • Lupus
  • Some blood disorders
  • Disorders of the liver and /or kidneys
  • Lung disease
  • Paralysis

The importance of nutrition during palliative care

One important element to palliative care involves nutrition and sustenance. Guardian Angel Carers can address your loved one’s nutritional needs.

For example, loss of appetite is common because of nausea, feeling anxious, being sad or becoming disinterested in activities they loved before. We understand when a client may need more support.

CareAngels will provide companionship and encouragement at mealtimes while being attentive to eating patterns that might indicate a deeper concern.

One carer helping with multiple tasks

Our skilled Guardian Angel Carers assist with a host of challenges common to patients with serious illnesses.

If someone is able to do less, we assist with essential tasks around medical care. This includes communication with health providers, explanation of treatment details, medication management and more. We also provide:

  • Transportation to and from appointments.
  • Emotional support.
  • Help around the house and in the garden.
  • Companionship.

Compassionate care during challenging times

Our CareAngels all possess caring personalities and sensitive listening skills. We will provide warm and genuine companionship while providing support in various forms.

For each patient, we tailor the care to suit your needs. Contact us to learn more about the customised care Guardian Angel Carers can provide.
