End-of-life Home Nursing Care
If your loved one is terminally ill, your loved one may opt to spend his final days in the comfort of his own home.
7 in 10 Singaporeans want to receive end-of-life care at home while fewer than 3 in 10 managed to fulfill their wish of doing so.
It is about making dying more comfortable,
saying goodbye in a place of familiarity...
The home setting is a familiar place for the terminally ill loved one, surrounded and cared for by family members and friend.
It can help make the dying loved one feel more comfortable psychologically.
Being in a familiar environment, a dying loved one is able to live by his own pace and schedule, follow his own feeding schedule and choice of food rather than the need to follow the facility's policy and routines.
It can make him feel that he is more in control over his life in his final days, making him feel better emotionally.
Home setting can provide more privacy and dignity, maximising the remaining quality of life and providing a dying loved one with better personal closure
Caring for a dying loved one can be emotionally stressful and the absence of direct medical supervision as opposed to being in a hospital or inpatient hospice can be daunting.
Our home nurses can provide up to round-the-clock end-of-life nursing care by your dying loved one's bedside, providing you with an available medical personnel at all times. We work closely with your home hospice care team to ensure that your loved one's care needs are well looked after. Our home nurses will remain by your side, following the passing of your loved one, to provide you with the necessary assistance and emotional support.
