Comfortable and compassionate end-of-life care in familiar surroundings

Making the most of your time together

Many people wish to remain at home while receiving end-of-life care. Our skilled and compassionate care team is here to support you through the journey. We are dedicated to providing a comfortable, professional and compassionate care service for you or your loved one during the final stages of life. 

End-of-life care at home allows you and your family to make the most of your valuable time together. We take care of all the everyday tasks and look after you in the final months or weeks. Our Care Workers understand the importance of creating a positive, comfortable and homely environment for the whole family.

We offer both live-in and visiting end-of-life care at home, tailored to suit your own needs and circumstances.

“Abbots Care’s support has helped us cope”

Please pass our greatest thanks on to the team at Abbots Care. They gave our mum the best care ever especially during her last days, we can’t thank them enough. Our mum remembered all the names of her Care Workers without hesitation, and I could hear in her voice how she appreciated them. Abbots Care’s support has helped us cope over the past few days since our mum came home.

How we approach end-of-life care at home

Our trained Care Workers provide a holistic mix of compassionate support, practical help and expertise, meeting all of your needs in your home environment. We’ll make sure we understand and take into account your wishes at every stage.

This holistic approach extends to the whole family. Abbots Care home care services lift the load, so that family members can spend less time on daily tasks, and more quality time together. And if you are caring for your loved one in their home, we can give you some respite – so you know there’s always someone there if you need a few hours’ rest or some fresh air.

Our Care Workers are trained to support a range of needs and conditions, and can provide advanced, complex care services where needed, to ease pain and ensure comfort. Whatever your needs, you’re in the best hands with Abbots Care.

All of our home care is tailored to your unique needs. Find out more about the end-of-life care services we can offer:

What is end-of-life care and is it the same as palliative care?

End-of-life care is a term used to describe the care of a person with a terminal illness. Rather than seeking to cure the condition it involves managing pain, relieving any symptoms and ensuring comfort at all times. End-of-life care services at home can also include daily tasks and support such as cooking meals, housekeeping and taking care of pets.

Palliative care is another phrase that we often use to talk about care at the end of life. The main difference is that palliative care can be provided at any stage of an illness, from diagnosis to the end of life. It refers to any care that aims to improve the quality of life for people with a serious illness.

Why choose end-of-life care at home?

For many people, home is the most comfortable and familiar place to be. Most people we speak to wish to remain at home while receiving care, particularly towards the end of their lives.

Home care allows people to maintain their independence and dignity, to receive care that is centred around their personal requirements and preferences, and to be surrounded by their nearest and dearest. 

Having end-of-life care at home also means that professional Care Workers can provide both emotional and practical support for the wider family, helping them to cope with the stress of caring for a loved one who is ill.

At Abbots Care, our strong family ethos is placed firmly behind everything we do, and we treat our customers as if they were our own family, providing only the highest standards of home care.

Why choose Abbots Care?

Our palliative care service is ideal for those who could benefit from some one-on-one time with a Care Worker, but do not require around the clock care. We can provide assistance with medical conditions and post operative care for as long as you need us, and we also offer specialist care services for more complex healthcare conditions.



We come to you, providing assistance in the comfort and familiarity of your own home.
