Palliative care

Palliative care

One of the most sensitive areas in the health management is caring for a friend or loved one whose prognosis is grim. A comfortable family home allows the loved ones to spend their precious time in surroundings full of love and good memories. You & I Care Services LTD makes this possible whether as a respite to allow loved ones to take a break or as around the clock loving care. A You & I Services LTD worker is always there with passion.

You & I Services LTD provides palliative care as part of a comprehensive supportive care framework defined by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) enabling the patient and their family to cope with their condition and treatment of it  right from pre-diagnosis, through the process of diagnosis and treatment, to cure, continuing illness or death and into bereavement.

This helps the patient to maximize the benefits of treatment and to live as well as possible with the effects of the disease. It is given equal priority alongside diagnosis and treatment.

Our palliative care therefore encompasses;

  • Self help and support
  • User involvement
  • Information giving
  • Psychological support

All, aiming to;

  • Affirm life and regard dying as a normal process
  • Provide relief from pain and other distressing symptoms
  • Integrate the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care
  • Offer a support system to help patients live as actively as possible until death

Offer a support system to help the family cope during the patient’s illness and in their own bereavement.
