• Advanced & Palliative Home Care

    Pain relief and complementary solutions

Palliative care is aimed at improving the quality of life of patients suffering from life-limiting illnesses such as ALS, multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart failure, COPD, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, or Parkinson’s disease.  This type of care is appropriate at any stage of illness and for patients of all ages. It is not limited to terminal illnesses, and care is available alongside treatments aimed at curing you.

Here’s what you can expect from palliative care 

Our palliative care team will help you to manage your condition and your treatments, with the aim of providing you with

  • Relief from symptoms such as pain, fatigue, shortness of breath,  problems with sleeping, numbness and constipation, nausea, loss of appetite
  • Information to help you understand and manage your condition and make educated choices regarding your care
  • The strength to continue with your daily life with as few restrictions as is possible
  • The ability to better tolerate your medical treatments

When can I start palliative care?

Palliative care is not related to your prognosis and there is no reason to wait; you can receive it alongside the treatments for your illness. Symptoms, especially pain, can lower the quality of your life and the stress can impact on your and your family’s happiness. We are here to help you manage your symptoms and to be as comfortable as possible.

Can I have ventilator care at home?

Our home-care nurses are trained to provide specialty care to patients with medically complex needs. Some of our patients require the use of a ventilator to maintain adequate breathing and sustain their life. It is extremely important that the nurse in these cases are competent and have both up-to-date knowledge and experience with the latest medical technology. We ensure our nurses are properly trained in all aspects and that they are able to work well with patients and their families facing the challenges associated with life on a ventilator.

Many of our ventilator-dependent patients cared for at home are children, meaning there are additional challenges in creating an environment that nurtures normal growth, socialization and development. Often our nurses are employed to accompany a child using a ventilator to school and to their other activities.

At Novomed Home Care, we are dedicated to providing exceptional personalized medical care in the comfort of your own home.
