When a loved-one reaches the stage where treatment is no longer possible and moves into the phase of palliative care it can be a very difficult time for the patient and the family. Home Care Assistance understands this and offers an option to help make this transition easier for everyone.
Home Care Assistance’s caregivers provide continuous one-to-one palliative care in the comfort of the patient’s own home. In doing so, they promote quality of life and dignity to the client while bringing peace of mind and respite for the family.

This familiarity of home can make the last days of life more enjoyable and fulfilled.
