Palliative Care

Social and Practical Help at Home

Adult care teams based at local councils can organise::

  • Personal care
  • Aids and adaptations at home
  • Social support

Patients are assessed at home or in hospital to decide on what the needs are. They will either be able to arrange care, or advise the patient and family on where the appropriate care may be obtained.
