Palliative care for the dying is an important service that aims to improve the quality of life for patients and their relatives in the difficult phase of life. As life draws to a close, there is nothing more important than ensuring that the patient and their loved ones receive the best possible support and care.
With palliative care from Privat Sygeplejerske ApS, you will experience peace, security, and presence in the final days. Palliative care for the dying focuses on relieving physical, psychological, social, and spiritual pain while considering the patient’s quality of life and their last wishes.
Palliative care for the dying
Palliative care is a specialized form of care that aims to improve the quality of life for patients facing serious illnesses. At Privat Sygeplejerske ApS, we understand the importance of relieving pain, fulfilling the patient’s last wishes, and supporting the relatives through the process. Listed below are some of the most important aspects of palliative care:
1. Relief of physical pain: Pain is often a central concern for patients in the last phase of life. Palliative care focuses on effective pain relief through medication, therapy, and other methods. The goal is to ensure that the patient is as comfortable as possible throughout the entire procedure.
2. Psychosocial support: Palliative care for the dying also involves psychological and social aspects. This may include counseling and support for both the patient and their relatives. It’s normal for both patients and families to experience anxiety, depression, and grief during this period.
3. Spiritual care: Some patients seek spiritual comfort and support in the last phase of life. Palliative care respects and meets these needs by offering spiritual guidance and comfort.
4. The patient’s last wishes: It’s important to understand and respect the patient’s wishes for the last time. This can include decisions about life-prolonging treatments, where and how they want to die, and where they want their final moments to be.
Our most important focal point in palliative care is the patients and their relatives, who often experience an emotional burden and thus need support during this difficult time. Our goal is to create a safe and dignified ending for everyone, regardless of where they are in the country.

Focus on the patient's quality of life and last wishes

At Privat Sygeplejerske ApS, we attach great importance to understanding the patient’s individual needs. We believe that it is important to take the patient’s last wishes into account and help achieve them. This can include anything from spending time with loved ones, arranging visits from friends and family, or helping to meet spiritual needs.
Palliative care for the dying is very much about honoring the patient’s individuality and helping them experience the last days on their terms, surrounded by love and care from our nurses and their families.

The role of relatives in palliative care
In the last phase of life, it can be challenging for relatives to support their loved ones. They may experience a wide range of emotions, including sadness, fear, and helplessness. It’s important to recognize and support the patients’ families during this time.
At Privat Sygeplejerske ApS, we are aware of the importance of involving relatives in the decision-making process and ensuring that they also receive the necessary support and advice.
Our talented nurses offer both practical and emotional counseling that can help the family navigate the difficult choices and decisions that must be made in the final phase of life.
Private hospice in your own home
Creating a safe and familiar atmosphere is essential for the patient’s comfort and well-being in the last phase of life.
At Privat Sygeplejerske ApS, our palliative care includes the option of establishing a private hospice in the patient’s own home. This gives a feeling of security and presence, as the patient is surrounded by their surroundings and loved ones.
Often the home is a place where the patient has spent many years of their life, and it’s often filled with memories. By spending the last time in the safe confines of the home, the family also can be there for the patient at any time. This can be a great comfort to both the patient and the family. At the same time, it can give the patient a sense of security in having self-determination and control over their surroundings and daily routines.
When Privat Sygeplejerske ApS creates a private hospice in the patient’s home, it allows the patient to say goodbye on their terms. Our palliative care is available 24/7 to ensure that the patient and their relatives always have access to the necessary support in a time of uncertainty and grief.
