NHS End of Life Care
Commissioned by the NHS, we have provided End of Life Care across our diverse Communities of South London in their home settings and in partnership with Multi-Disciplinary Professionals
In line with our intrinsic ethos of caring in a culturally-appropriate and faith-sensitive manner with professional training and processes and procedures, this Service provides assurance to patients and families at a sensitive time.
We pride ourselves in seeking to assigning and matching Careworkers of the same cultural heritage and background in their languages and faith as much as possible. Our Careworkers are trained to note the changes that can take place with Service Users so that the service continues to be tailored around their changing needs.
Our Careworkers develop a warm, supportive and harmonious relationship that endorses self-actualization and empowerment which allows the client the freedom to be and express themselves, as to their desires and wishes. This is through person-centred practices in showing and demonstrating empathy and positive regard with compassion surrounding the person’s circumstances.
We find individuals at this stage gaining consolation through their own spiritual upliftment for which cultural and faith practices are endorsed.
When having to address such profound end of life needs and wishes, we ensure that a sense of trust, reassuring calm, touch and consent is an important component in communicating and appropriately caring for the person. Furthermore, in helping the individual to be able to live as well as they can, in the time they have left, with their dignity and quality of life intact.
