Our palliative care team work in partnership with the child, young person, family and allied professionals, supporting varied complex health conditions.
Palliative care can be provided at any stage of illness and along with curative treatment. It improves the child or young person’s ability to go through medical treatment and help the family to better understand the condition and the choices for medical care.
Acting as an advocate, Focused Healthcare aims to ensure that all parties know and understand what the family want giving them more control over their care plan. Our nurses spend as much time as necessary communicating with the family and supporting them every step of the way to improve quality of life and achieve positive outcomes in all circumstances.
End of life care is provided by our specialist and experienced team of community paediatric nurses. On request they can prepare care plans and enable a quick transition between hospital discharge and arrival home ensuring best care for the child and their family including bereavement support.
