Palliative Care

Relieving the pressure on you and your family

Looking after yourself can be very difficult during an illness even if it only lasts a few days. If a condition is more serious and protracted, the effort of maintaining normal life becomes that much more difficult as a result. We offer palliative care to help you or a loved one through these difficult periods. It should be noted that palliative care is not treatment for an illness, it’s rather a way of helping to relieve suffering alongside treatment. 

Our carers offer full support and care, both to help you through the difficult period of illness and also to ensure that your family is set at ease about your safety. There’s really no need to struggle and put yourself in danger when we can help you make the best of a difficult situation.

End of life care

End of life care can help those with a terminal illness or condition that has become advanced, progressive and incurable. 

Providing care to a client at the end of their life is very personal to each client, our Care Managers will take into account the personal preferences of our clients and their loved ones and arrange care that will provide the very best support to the individual and to their loved ones. 

Universal Care can help our client remain as comfortable as possible at home. We are able to work alongside other health professionals to ensure a comprehensive level of care is provided. 

While we are based in Beaconsfield, our care services are available in nearby areas such as Marlow, Berkhamsted and Watford.

"As one of the families who have the benefit of your wonderful carers, I would like to say thank you for everything this year. Your carers are very special people and have made our lives much easier. With special mention to Debbie, Britt and Kadi, without whom our family would be in chaos. Thank you."
"I would like to say how very kind and caring your staff are towards my mother, their care is wonderful and she is very fond of both of them. It is a worry for me living 70 miles away but I know she is in good hands."
"We have used Universal Care for almost three years for help with care for my disabled son. The staff are all pleasant and helpful and the office staff do all they can to accommodate our needs. They even send clients a small gift and card at Christmas! They make us feel valued."
"I would like to thank Universal Care for all the help they have given me, first in looking after my husband, and then more recently over the last three months for me. With their professional, friendly and caring attention, I now feel strong enough to manage on my own. I would not hesitate in recommending Universal Care to anyone who is looking for care for a loved one."
"They were extraordinarily professional, caring and efficient, and each of them displayed a wonderful humanity and bond with my father that made his final years peaceful, comfortable, and even blissful. When it came to his passing he was able to do so in his own bed at home in a quiet dignified and relaxed manner."
"I am very pleased with the high standard of care my husband receives. My husband has dementia and is in a wheelchair. It is fair to say that he is difficult, especially for me! Having the carers has made a huge difference to my capacity to cope and survive."
"We were extremely pleased with the thoughtful care and attention shown over the 3 days we required help. She enjoyed having the carer to look after her and we would not hesitate to call on Universal Care again for their services."
"We have been very satisfied and happy with the service. Our current carer is a treasure and we are hoping to see a great deal of her in future."
"I found the response from the office team enthusiastic, coherent and wanting to help immediately. The visit for consultation at my home was very helpful and professional, and a carer was put in place for me on the date and the hour I requested."
