The Anglian CarePromise

It is hard when deciding on a care company to look after our advocate or loved one and it is not one we take lightly.

Anglian Care was founded in 2008 as our Founder Des wanted to ensure that his grandmother was looked after by caring, professional and dedicated carers. After founding Anglian Care his mission was to give ‘peace of mind’.

With over 10 years of experience we have learnt what the word ‘care’ truly means. 

Our carers are special people, not everyone can become a carer. Ensuring our care values are at a heart of everything we do, our best practice is making you happy which makes us happy. 

We want to give you the knowledge that our loved one is safe, happy and well looked after, so you can ho back to popping in for a cup of tea and spending some quality time together, knowing the rest is taken care of. 

Thank You! Care Workers!

Frequently Asked Questions About Palliative Care Essex

What is palliative care?

Palliative care, often misunderstood as end-of-life care, is an approach that enhances the quality of life of individuals facing problems associated with life-threatening illnesses. The core philosophy of palliative care involves providing relief from distressing symptoms, pain, physical stress, and mental anxiety associated with a serious ailment. This approach goes beyond medicine, considering the broader emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of the patient and their family. It is applicable at any stage of a severe illness and can be offered alongside curative treatments.

Can palliative care be provided at home?

Yes, palliative care can be provided at home, reflecting the preference of many individuals and families to spend this period in a familiar and comfortable setting. Home-based palliative care allows our service users to be surrounded by their loved ones in a non-clinical, personalised environment. This care includes professional medical supervision, symptom management, and emotional and social support.

How can palliative care support family and loved ones?

Palliative care offers holistic support to the entire family unit, recognising that those close to the person receiving care also face emotional distress and challenges. The palliative care team offers emotional support, helps family members understand the condition and prognosis, assists in decision-making processes, and provides bereavement support, if needed.

What should I expect from palliative care?

Palliative care aims to enhance your comfort and promote your quality of life. This entails managing physical symptoms such as pain, nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, breathlessness, and insomnia, but also extends to addressing psychological issues like anxiety and depression. The palliative care team can help navigate the healthcare system, facilitate communication with healthcare providers, and assist in decision-making concerning treatment options. You can also expect the palliative care team to provide spiritual care and offer guidance on advanced care planning, including legal and ethical issues related to your care. At the heart of it all, palliative care focuses on respecting your personal values and choices, aligning the care you receive with your unique needs and life goals.

How long can someone receive palliative care?

The duration of palliative care is not limited to a specific time frame. It is an approach that can be employed as long as a person is living with a serious or life-threatening illness. From the time of diagnosis, palliative care can be provided alongside other treatments aimed at managing the illness. It continues for as long as it is needed, adjusting and adapting to the person’s health condition and their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Palliative care is designed to enhance the quality of life for individuals living with serious illnesses. It does so by managing symptoms, relieving pain, offering emotional and spiritual support, and ensuring that the care provided aligns with the person’s life goals and values. It also eases the stress of family members by offering support and guidance. Multiple studies show that people who receive palliative care often have improved quality of life, better satisfaction with their care, and in some cases, longer survival times.
