End of life and palliative care in Scotland
Everyone should have the right to spend their final days in their own home with their family and friends. We make it possible for patients to be moved quickly and safely from hospital back to their home, and provide extra support at home if need be.
Whether you need clinical nursing or care support, our teams manage a patient’s needs while always respecting and maintaining their dignity.
Firstly, can I say that out of the 11 organisations I contacted in the area, SNG was the only one prepared to supply the support we required, even with little notice. We wanted to honour our mum’s wish to die at home, yet there was no-one who seemed to be available to help us. If you are ever in a position where you need to bring a loved one home for palliative/end of life care, I would recommend that you seriously consider using a professional, 24-hour nursing care provider. Yes, the cost may be higher, but it is most often only for a relatively short time. The peace of mind it provides is immeasurable and makes a difficult process much more bearable. SNG’s company motto is ‘when no-one else can’ – well, you certainly lived up to your company’s mission with us!
