Palliative care is the care of those with a serious or life threatening illness.
At Consultus the emphasis is on helping to improve the quality of life for those people facing ill health, whilst maintaining their dignity and self respect at all times.
Our Live-in Carers can offer:
Personal care - dressing/undressing, washing, showering, bathing, oral care, hair care, shaving, continence care and toileting
Supervision of medication – to gently remind and prompt Clients to take prescribed medication
Practical support - general housework, shopping, cooking, laundry and cleaning
Companionship – the round-the-clock reassurance and peace of mind of knowing that someone is on-hand should they be needed
