When a loved one is diagnosed with a serious illness and there are no curative treatment options left, palliative care can be a decisive factor in improving the quality of life and supporting the patient in the last days.
For many families, it is crucial that their loved ones can receive this care in a homely environment, and Privat Sygeplejerske ApS can help with that.
“Our mission is to provide quality care in the patient’s own home, where comfort and dignity are at the center”
By choosing private nursing care in the patient’s home, you and your loved ones ensure quality care. You have the option of choosing private nursing care in Copenhagen and elsewhere in Zealand, such as private nursing care in Gentofte or private nursing care in Hellerup. You and your loved ones can also choose private nursing care on Funen or in Jutland, such as private nursing care in Aarhus.
Palliative care at home
Palliative care at home is a caring approach that focuses on pain relief, symptom management, and support for both the patient and their family.
It allows the patient to remain in safe and familiar surroundings, surrounded by loved ones. This type of care can help reduce stress and anxiety and improve quality of life.
Palliative care is a specialized form of health care designed to provide comprehensive support and comfort to individuals suffering from serious, life-threatening illnesses.
The purpose of palliative care is not to cure the disease, but rather to improve the quality of life for the patient and alleviate their suffering both physically and psychologically.
This includes treating physical symptoms such as pain and nausea as well as dealing with the emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects of the disease.
Psychological and spiritual support
Palliative care often involves psychological and emotional support for both the patient and their relatives.
Many people who are confronted with a life-threatening illness experience fear, depression, and anxiety. Privat Sygeplejerske ApS specializes in palliative care and helps to deal with these feelings and offers therapeutic support.
For some patients, questions of existence, faith and spirituality may become important as they approach the end of life. Palliative care often includes spiritual support and help to address these questions and concerns.
Palliative care therefore also involves the preparation of individual care plans that consider the patient’s unique needs and wishes.
Advantages of palliative care in your own home
1. Safe and familiar surroundings: Being surrounded by one’s own belongings and loved ones makes a big difference to the patient’s well-being and comfort.
2. Personal care: Privat Sygeplejerske ApS offers tailored care that considers the patient’s unique needs and wishes.
3. Family involvement: Palliative care in one’s own home allows the family to be closer to and actively participate in the care of their loved one.
4. Pain relief and symptom management: Experienced private nurses from Privat Sygeplejerske ApS ensure that pain and discomfort are continuously monitored and managed effectively.
5. Psychological support: Both the patient and the next of kin receive psychological support to deal with the emotional burden that often accompanies a life-threatening illness.
Individual care plan
At Privat Sygeplejerske ApS, an individual care plan is drawn up for each patient based on their needs, wishes and diagnosis. This approach guarantees that the patient receives the proper care and attention. At the same time, this provides the opportunity to create a close and supportive environment where the patient’s comfort and dignity are the focus.
Individual care plans are a central part of palliative care and a key component in ensuring that the patient receives the most tailored and appropriate care according to their unique needs and wishes.
Privat Sygeplejerske ApS prepares these plans in collaboration with the patient and their relatives and considers a few factors, including the underlying illness, the patient’s physical and psychological condition and personal preferences.
Communication is the key in palliative care in one's own home
Our private nurses, who specialize in palliative care, are trained to engage in open and honest communication with the patient and their relatives. This helps create a sense of clarity and understanding about the patient’s illness, treatment options and care choices.
When a person is confronted with a serious, life-threatening illness, it is not only the patient who is affected. The whole family and close friends can experience stress, worry and other emotional burdens.
Palliative care can therefore also include practical help, such as medication administration or coordination of doctor visits and visits to family and friends. Our private nurses can help with this.
Communication and support for the patient and their relatives in palliative care is an integrated approach that considers both the physical and psychosocial aspects of – dealing with a life-threatening illness.
Home palliative care aims to create a caring and supportive environment that allows the patient and their family to manage the illness and prepare for the inevitable in a dignified and loving environment.
