End of Life Care

When a loved one is suffering a serious or terminal illness it is inevitably an intensely emotional and difficult time for everyone concerned.

Right at Home can ensure that their palliative care is delivered sensitively and with dignity, helping to control pain and keep your loved one as comfortable as possible as they approach the end of their life.

At these trying times our carers can provide round-the-clock companionship, personal care, monitoring and help with medication.

We can also support family members by offering respite from daily tasks such as light housekeeping, laundry and meal preparation.

Right at Home will work closely with hospices, GPs and other healthcare professionals, and can also help loved ones access sources of emotional and practical support.

Information and Resources on End-of-Life Care

You can find information and support relating to end-of-life care on the Irish Hospice Foundation website.

Their End Of Life Care Guide explains what you can expect from end-of-life care and gives information about an individual's rights and choices, including refusing treatment, setting down their wishes for future treatment, and arranging to give someone the legal right to make decisions for them, if they are no longer capable.

The guide also contains information on discussing these issues with family and carers.
