Reasons to consider live-in end-of-life care
The person doesn’t wish to die in a hospital, care home or hospice.
The person’s family want to support the person to die at home but feel that they need professional support to achieve this. They may want a long-term live-in care service, or they may prefer to try our respite care service first.
The person, and commonly their families too, feel they need hands-on, expert guidance through the days, weeks or months of end-of-life care that lie ahead.
The person lives alone and family members aren’t close enough to help them in their wish to die at home.
The person doesn’t want their end-of-life care to be provided by family members, preferring a live-in carer to support them, so that they and their relatives can concentrate on having family time together.
