Palliative Care

Living In The Comfort Of Their Own Home

Lotus Home Care provides palliative care services across the UK for those suffering from a life-threatening illness.

The Lotus Home Care palliative care service provides support during this very difficult time ensuring that life is made a little bit easier for all the family involved. The Lotus Home Care palliative care service provides support for individuals (adults or children) across the UK who have a life-threatening illness and who would like to remain living in the comfort of their own home surrounded by their family and friends.

Happy = Healthy

We often associate elderly care with those suffering from illness, general old age, or disabilities. However, one of the most crippling conditions elderly people find themselves enduring is loneliness.

It’s not difficult to see how isolation is common for elderly people whether that be friends passing away or loved ones living far away. As a result, loneliness can lead to depression, decline in physical wellbeing, and a heightened chance of developing complications like Dementia. That’s why we offer our companionship service; to show our clients that there is still a reason to wake up in the morning and live a healthy and happy life.

What’s Included?

With our Palliative Care service, we provide:

  • Support after treatments
  • Ensuring you are comfortable at all times
  • Allowing you to remain as active as possible
  • Supplying personal care
  • Providing social companionship
  • 24 hr care or calls as and when required dependent on your illness requirements

We’re Proud To Be
Dementia Friendly

At Lotus Home Care, we recognise the challenges faced when dealing with Dementia. We provide a safe environment for our patients who suffer from this illness; ensuring they carry on living their lives independently and to their full potential.

Hear It From Our Palliative Care Client’s Family

Lotus Home Care Client

"I cannot thank Lotus Home Care enough for the support they provided through what was the toughest period for our family. My father was suddenly diagnosed with terminal cancer and wasn't given long to live. We wanted Dad to be comfortable in his final days and Lotus provided us with staff who were so caring, gentle and sensitive. They made sure that Dad had all that he needed. Even after his death, the staff check to see that we are ok. It really is the small things that makes a big difference".

Lotus Home Care Client

"Losing a loved one is never easy and you don't truly realise the help you need until you go through it. Lotus Home Care worked closely with the hospice to ensure that all needs were met for my son and took away the pressure from me so I could enjoy quality time with him".

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What kind of care can you provide?

    At Lotus Home Care, we are passionate about delivering a high quality person centred approach. Our carers are what makes us succeed in what we do. So ensuring all our carers are not only fully trained in all aspects of care delivery but many different training opportunities are provided on an ongoing basis too.

    This means we have highly skilled care staff that can safely deliver a multitude of different tasks.

    • Overnight care
    • Dementia care
    • Alzheimer’s care
    • Respite care
    • Bariatric care
    • Palliative care
    • Physical disabilities care
    • Live-in care
    • Learning disabilities care
    • Personal care
    • Convalescence care
  • Do you accommodate overnight calls?

    At Lotus Home Care we strive to provide a service that suits all individuals. Delivering a good care service is not always just during the day, this includes providing a high-quality service during night time hours as well.

    We provide waking nights, where a carer will be alert to any care duties and available for the full night-time period to assist with care. We also provide sleeping nights; this is a great service if yourself or family member needs support during the night but only occasionally.

    This also gives individuals the reassurance that there is someone else there for them if needed, it also gives relatives that peace of mind.

    • Overnight care is when a carer stays in your home overnight to attend to your normal activities of daily living.
    • Care needs don’t stop at the end of the working day and fortunately for many who need help, neither does caregiving.
    • Having access to trained staff through the night is essential for many complex medical conditions or when an individual is recuperating from an illness.
    • For families, knowing that a loved one has to spend the night alone can be a concern.
    • If a situation occurs during in the small hours, and no-one is present to act quickly, it could easily lead to an emergency situation.
    • Loved ones may not always have a personal care alarm to send an alert for assistance, but with professional support present, such fears are put to bed.
    • The primary benefit of overnight care is that individuals who may be anxious or lonely are able to rest well and get a good night’s sleep.
