About Us

It is a sad fact that while over 60% of people with a life-limiting condition express the wish to be cared for and die in their own home, in reality in Devon in 2015, only 24% were able to do so, while only 5% were able to be cared for in the Hospice. Over 50% died in the RDE and acute hospitals. TLC Palliative Care at Home will be a specialist, CQC registered care agency which will recruit, train and support carers to deliver expert end of life care in Exeter and East Devon.

We will be a Social Enterprise:

Allowing us to use all our income for the benefit of patients, families and staff.

We will be specialists:

Only providing support for palliative end of life clients. We aim to be able to provide intense support at short notice, when required.

We will work towards an integrated service:

By working closely with NHS and specialist palliative care providers.

About Michelle

Who will Benefit?

Patients
More people will be able to be cared for and die in their own home. They will be less likely to need admission to hospital in the last weeks of their life. They will be able to come home more quickly , if they do have to be admitted.
Family Carers
Will be better prepared and supported to carry on caring for their loved one. Our sitting services will provide respite and support, allowing them a break from caring and the reassurance of companionship at a difficult time.
Care Workers
We will provide specialist training in the physical and emotional care of the person and their families, increasing their confidence and competence in complex situations. We will pay a minimum of a living wage, pay travel time and reimburse travel costs. We will support them and make them feel valued.
NHS and Hospice
We aim to prevent avoidable acute admissions in the last few weeks of someone's illness. We will be able to provide double-handed CHC Fast-track funded packages of care, enabling prompt discharge from hospital or Hospice in-patient unit, saving in-patient costs.

Our Vision and Values

We believe that more people in the terminal stage of their illness should be able to choose to be cared for and die at home, knowing that they and their families will be supported by trained, skilled and compassionate carers.

"TLC Palliative Care at Home will work closely with healthcare professionals and specialist palliative care providers to ensure that the patient and their families receive the best supportive care."
