In which areas do you provide home care services?

While our Draycott Nursing & Care’s headquarters are based in Kensington & Chelsea in the west of London, the company is large enough to provide care across the UK whilst also being intimate enough for members of the senior nursing team to be personally involved in the care of all our clients.

What does palliative and end-of-life care include?

Our nurses and carers are trained to support those who are nearing the end of life. The services we provide include monitoring symptoms, administering medications, pain relief and supporting your emotional and psychological needs. Our aim is to ensure you are in a supportive, relaxing and compassionate environment and that your choices and wishes are met.

Bespoke care tailored to your needs

Our approach is person-centred, we ensure that your spiritual, emotional and cultural needs guide all decisions. Our communication is straightforward, appropriate, timely and is delivered sensitively.

Palliative and end-of-life care is provided in close collaboration with practitioners to ensure seamless care and support. Needs are met in ways that are appropriate to your circumstances and priorities.

We take into account your unique circumstances, needs and wishes of you and your loved ones.

Review, reassess, refine

Regular reviews and effective communication ensure that care and support is coordinated effectively and responsive to your changing circumstances.

An End-Of-Life Care Case Study by Marianne Jack-Lamont, Head of Business Development

We were contacted by a local GP with whom we sometimes work.  They had a long-time client who was being discharged from hospital and needed end-of-life care.

Unfortunately, the client was not well enough to return to their primary residence in continental Europe but they also owned a house in London.  However, as a European national, they were not entitled to NHS funds for care at home.

The first step was for one of our clinical nurse managers to visit the client in hospital.  They spoke at length with the client’s family and medical team in order to fully assess the situation and to determine the client’s immediate nursing needs.  Together with a Draycott clinical nurse specialist, they planned every detail of the client’s discharge from hospital.  This included ordering all the equipment needed to ensure the client received the care they needed at home.

Within a few days of being contacted by the GP, we were able to bring their client back to their house in London where all their nursing and care needs were taken care of round the clock by a team from Draycott.  We received very positive feedback from the family who were extremely appreciative of the work we put in to ensure their loved one received the very best care.
