Care in the Community
As well as visiting patients in their own homes you’ll find our Specialist Palliative Care Nurses in the Hospital and in care homes
The Specialist Palliative Care Nurses have extensive knowledge and skills in caring for people with life limiting illnesses. Their role is to provide advice and support with any physical, psychological, spiritual or social issues, supporting you and your family. Our aim is to enable people to have the best quality of life.
Listening to your concerns about your illness and those of your family/carer
Providing information about your illness and treatment
Assessing any symptoms that are troublesome and making suggestions of how these can be improved
Giving you that opportunity to discuss your care, what is important to you and what your wishes are about your future cares
Liaising with other health care professionals and teams involved in your care, be that in the community or hospital, as our involvement aims to compliment care provided by others
