Shipston Home Nursing work closely with your GP and District Nursing team and are experienced in helping to manage both physical and psychological symptoms. We also try and help to ease the emotional burden that patients and their loved ones may have, allowing them to make the most of their time together. There may be times when patients and their loved ones find it difficult to express their worries to a family member and it’s often easier to have these conversations with someone who is outside of the family unit. Our nurses are always happy to listen to concerns, help allay worries and where appropriate source specialist help through our network of healthcare professionals.
Our priority is to support the individual in the choices they make.
There is a wealth of information available on the internet, it may seem a little overwhelming but here are some publications we think are useful:
“What to do when someone dies” www.gov.uk
Dying Matters is also a helpful website, the resources section of this website has downloadable leaflets on lots of useful subjects such as:
We have created a leaflet which is intended to help guide you through the end of life process, please ask your nurse for a copy.
