Private palliative care in London
SweetTree’s End of Life Care service was created to provide a tangible and high quality choice for those who wish to spend their last moments amidst familiar surroundings, rather than move elsewhere.
We understand that although staying at home is the preference for most, the fear, emotional hurdles and practicalities of caring for someone at this stage of life can be challenging.
Reflecting this, we have a dedicated palliative support service for not only our clients, but also their loved ones.
Our End of Life services champion dignity, compassion and respect as an absolute priority in everything they do.
The ethos behind this service is to mirror that of the highly respected hospice movement. It is designed to actively join up with all involved in the palliative journey, whether it be another care team, a family or a hospice – to ensure the very highest quality of care is provided at such an important time.
Our End of Life care service includes:
- Support from 2 to 24 hour care, enabling freedom of choice and flexibility
- Pro-active partnerships with community palliative care teams, other specialists from the multidisciplinary team as well as family and friends
- Enablement to fulfil choices for our clients and loved ones wherever possible.
SweetTree discussed people’s wishes regarding care at the end of their lives and dying as part of the initial assessment of their needs. Specific wishes and needs were recorded in people’s care plans. Staff received training in end of life care to ensure the best support for people at their home at the final stages of their life.
