Palliative care is specialist care for people with serious, life limiting or terminal illnesses or conditions.
Help at the most difficult time
Care Matters can help with vital support for you or your loved one at the most difficult time in life. We believe that though you may have a terminal condition, you should expect to live as well as possible in the time you have left.
Palliative care is specialist care. Here, support might include managing pain and other symptoms, whilst also providing psychological, social and spiritual support – and allowing someone to die with dignity. Our care team are all highly trained to provide the broad range of skills required.
We understand that family and friends will also be hugely affected by the illness and it can be an extremely stressful time for all. Utmost sensitivity is paramount in our delivery of care in these circumstances. Individual Care Plans will completely respect personal choices and preferences for end of life care – including where this should take place.
"To the Care Matters team, you are wonderful! With my grateful thanks for the kind and helpful way you cared for Stuart. You all helped ease a very difficult situation."

A network of support for palliative care
All Care Matters care teams work alongside other healthcare professionals, such as District Nurses, Charities and Local Hospices, in our delivery of palliative care support services. We can provide 24 hour care where needed and at very short notice. This helps with providing close family and friends with some respite time, if required, and provides important continuity of care to you or your loved one.
