About us

The term “end of life” relates to care that supports a person and their family in the last 12 months of their life.

Our aim is to provide individual patient focused care to support patients, relatives and carers within their home environments during a Crisis situation, Palliative / End Of Life Care, to prevent hospital admission and allow patient choice where possible.
