    FirstCol supports the clients’ choice to remain in their own home whilst receiving palliative care. Our dedicated team work closely with Continuing Healthcare (CHC) professionals and multidisciplinary teams to arrange packages of palliative care right across the UK, typically within 48 hours of enquiry. Upon enquiry, we can organise a telephone assessment to be conducted by one of our Senior Registered Nurse specialist and a member of our Care Management team. Following assessment, final costing is established and the package of palliative homecare can start straight away. We have demonstrable ability to organise and resume care for palliative care customers quickly within one day, assigning an experienced and knowledgeable Homecare Support Worker to each case. Our carers will arrive at your home with a good understanding of your physical and psychological requirements. We have a good number of Homecare Support Workers with palliative care expertise who regularly work alongside hospices, Macmillan support groups, and District Nurses to maintain client comfort and dignity in the later stages of life. Our Homecare Support Workers are trained in complex care, including pain management, ventilator care, administration of medication, nebuliser care and bladder/bowel management are available to support palliative cases.
