Palliative Care at Home
You will face many difficult decisions as you near the end of life and those decisions will include what kind of care you'd like to receive and where you'd like to receive this care. You will also consider who will make decisions about your care should you not be able to make decisions yourself.Ask for Care
Devoted & Experienced Palliative Care
You deserve comfort, quality of life, and respect for your personal treatment decisions and cultural or spiritual concerns at every stage. Nurse Next Door promises to provide you the necessary family support at home or in a care facility through our end-of-life care program.
It’s our mission to ensure this passage of your life is as burden-free as possible. That is why our professional aged care team will communicate closely with you and your family to ensure your continuity of care is seamless and stress-free. We want you to maintain as much dignity as possible throughout the entire process and will provide you with around-the-clock emotional and physical support with each day.
Your professional aged care team will discuss your wishes and preferences with you and take these into account as they work closely with you to plan your care program. We will also take your family and loved ones’ wishes into careful consideration so that everyone is on the same page going forward.
Nurse Next Door will put your needs first. We want to know where you would like to receive your care and where you want to spend your remaining days. You can receive end-of-life care at home or receive hospice services in a care facility, depending on your needs and desires.
We recognise that the best end-of-life care is based on the understanding that this phase of life is natural and inevitable but can also put a tremendous emotional toll on you and your loved ones. Nurse Next Door’s main goals are to maintain your ultimate comfort, carefully explain the choices available to you and support your individuality to the best of our abilities.
We respect the psychosocial and spiritual needs of you and your family and aim to reduce any inappropriate and stressful decisions regarding the setting of your care, providing you with the option of home care whenever possible. Nurse Next Door’s comprehensive health care team will look after your preparation for the end-of-life, your relationships with your family members and healthcare providers, supporting you in achieving a sense of completion to the best of our ability.
Palliative Care Where & When You Need It
Our greatest goal is to support you and your family’s acceptance of your end-of-life care phase and to discuss any changing aspects of your care process openly and honestly. Most importantly, we guarantee you will never be alone. Your caregiver, Nurse Next Door care team and other health care providers will remain in close communication and contact with you and your family at every stage to ensure this chapter is as comfortable and peaceful as possible.
