Welcome to your PHH Team
PHH provides all of our clients and their families with individualised support that is delivered according to their needs.
Our team aims to develop meaningful connections and resources to help improve your quality of life and provide comfort, strength and hope.
We recognise that often there are many demands on your time, including medical appointments, treatments in hospitals, family needs and life in general. Our aim is to help you maintain your chosen commitments with as much or as little support you feel you need.
Our team of palliative care specialists are experienced in providing support, answering questions and offering holistic care in your home.
Why do I need it?
Palliative care helps you to live well with a serious illness that is likely to shorten your life. It aims to make you comfortable, improve your quality of life, and support family and friends caring for you.
It also provides choices and helps you to make important decisions about your care.
Palliative care offers expert care to relieve a person’s pain and suffering, and to respond to their social, emotional, cultural, and spiritual needs. Support is also available to family and friends providing care.
Referrals to PHH can be received from a variety of people including your GP, Specialists, your hospital or even a family member.
After receiving your referral the intake nurse will call you and will need to ask some questions as part of a compulsory risk assessment for visiting people in their homes.
Don’t be alarmed, these questions just helps us to keep our staff safe as well as ensuring we have adequate information to make safe decisions regarding your care.
"You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all that we can not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die"
