Make the most of your time with your family and friends while our dedicated team focus on the general day-to-day necessities. The effects of being diagnosed with a terminal illness are devastating, and at Cure Healthcare Services Ltd, we aim to relieve some of this upset by providing palliative care in a home environment. Palliative care allows you or your loved one to remain in your home surrounded by all your happiest memories.
As part of our comprehensive end-of-life care services, we provide specialist support 24-hours a day. Accommodating all requests, we provide full-time carers who provide round-the-clock care as well as visiting carers who are on-hand to assist with general tasks.
From administrating medication to cooking meals and reminiscing about your life, our dedicated team are always there when you need someone to talk to or help with daily living tasks. Working continually to provide the support you need, we provide palliative care whenever you need it.
The great advantage of palliative care is that you can remain in the comfort of your own home in the days preceding your death. Your beloved friends and family can also be at your side during this time. Palliative care also gives your family comfort as they know that you are in a place that you feel most content. Plus, it is usually easier for your friends and family to visit you at home as opposed to visiting you in a hospice or hospital. Furthermore, as one of our compassionate carers are always there to support you, you have peace of mind that any changes in your condition will be responded to quickly. In addition to this, our carers will also notify your family and friends about any changes in your condition so they can still carry on with their lives. Following the standards stipulated by the Care Quality Commission who regulate all health services, you can be confident that your carer possesses all the skills needed to deliver the highest level of care
Although you always want to be there for your loved one, it is also important to remember that you need to make time for yourself as everyone deserves a break from care commitments. To allow you to spend time on yourself, we provide a range of respite services. These include stepping in when you are embarking on a two-week holiday, a short break, or when you unexpectedly become ill yourself and need cover quickly. Our trained and qualified professionals provide one-to-one care whenever you require it.
Taking a break from care commitments is important as being a full-time carer can be both physically and emotionally demanding. With our respite care, you have peace of mind that your loved one is being cared for by a dedicated team of professionals. Plus, after your break, you will feel relaxed and refreshed.

Live-In Care – Where the Carer Lives in Your House, Offering Support and Company Day and Night
