Can my loved one receive end-of-life care at home?

Yes, end-of-life care can take place in the comfort of your loved one’s place of residence. 

Receiving care in a familiar environment, as opposed to a hospice facility or a hospital, can make a significant difference to your loved one’s experience and your journey as a caregiver. 

However, while over 3 in 4 of Singaporeans wish to spend their final days at home according to a Lien Foundation study, fewer than 1 in 4 were able to do so.

What we offer

End-of-life care aims to maximise a person’s quality of life in the remaining days that they have. During this time, our licensed nurses and certified caregivers will do their best to ensure that your loved one remains comfortable and to support you. 

Apart from pain and symptom management, our Care Pros can assist with and provide:

  • Nursing care
  • Night care
  • Vital signs monitoring
  • Companionship
  • Emotional and psychosocial support
  • Medication administration
  • Meal preparation
  • Personal hygiene care, including grooming and bed-sponging
  • NGT and PEG feeding
  • Catheter and urinary bag care
  • Support with daily living activities

With so many uncertainties, taking your loved one’s care into your own hands can be daunting and challenging — which is why Homage’s Care Pros are here to journey with you and your family.

Reviews from Our Customers 

Great nurses who handled loved one with care

One of the best home care services! All the nurses are great and handled my loved one with care, they are detailed when taking care of my parent-in-law. They focus on hygiene and make sure my father-in-law stays active, which I feel very delighted by when seeing him in good hands.

Excellent service that eases the load of family caregivers

Excellent service provided by the professional nurses. Very prompt follow up and arrangements made once you have created an account with them. I would strongly recommend Homage to those who need home personal care and nursing as they ease the load of family members.

Great care for bedridden loved one after a hospital discharge

A very good option for an extra hands to care for elderly. My mum was discharged from hospital & she needed extra hands on top of my helper as she is bedridden. So far all carers are very patient and helpful. Will definitely need them in future and will recommend to my family & friends.

When should I consider engaging end-of-life care for my loved one?

According to LifeSG, most people choose to start end-of-life care, or palliative care, when they have received a prognosis that they are approaching the end of life within the next 12 months. Typically, care recipients begin receiving end-of-life care under the advice and referral of their healthcare team. 

However, end-of-life care can begin whenever when your loved one needs it. It can begin in the hours, days, weeks, or months before your loved one passes.

You may also consider professional care support when you feel physically or emotionally overwhelmed and are facing difficulties as a caregiver to your loved one.

Need support with your loved one’s care? We can support you in this journey.

On average, hospice or end-of-life care cost approximately $7,000 per month, but care packages and subsidies are available to offset some of the cost.

Top questions about End-of-Life Care

Service FAQ

What is end-of-life care?

End-of-life care is provided to those who are at the end of their lives and are no longer receiving treatment to cure a life-limiting or terminal illness.

Care providers aim to reduce and control pain, as well as other symptoms of the illness, so that the individual can remain as comfortable as possible during their remaining days. 

Are palliative, hospice and end-of-life care the same?

While palliative, hospice and end-of-life care provide comfort and aim to improve the quality of life of those battling life-threatening illnesses, they are not the same.

Hospice care, also known as end-of-life care, happens when the goal is no longer to treat and help an individual recover from the condition, but to improve their quality of life and to support them as they live to their fullest for the remaining days.

Palliative care encompasses end-of-life or hospice care, but isn’t limited to people who are terminally ill. A person can be undergoing treatment to cure their condition while getting palliative care at the same time. This can help them to cope with the symptoms of the illness or the side effects of treatment.

How long can end-of-life care last?

The length of end-of-life care varies from person to person. This stage of care may last a few days, months or even years. 

If in doubt, please consult your loved one’s healthcare team as they will be better able to assess your loved one’s condition.

Does Homage provide 24/7 end-of-life care?

Yes, we do provide round-the-clock care services. Two Homage Care Professionals will be scheduled for the visits, and care will be split into 12-hour shifts to support you and your loved one round-the-clock each day.

Who are Homage's Care Professionals?

Homage’s Care Professionals are individuals who are passionate and dedicated to delivering quality elderly care to families and care recipients. 100% local, they are trained caregivers, licensed nurses, and professional therapists from all walks of life.

How quickly will I be able to receive the care service?

We aim to match a Care Pro to your requested visit within 2-3 days. For bookings made 1-2 days before the visit date, we will try our best to match a Care Pro.

Does Homage offer care packages for multiple visits?

Yes, we offer short to long-term care packages with varying care durations so that you can find a care package which best fits your loved one’s needs and preferences. You can also save up to 20% for multiple care sessions with these care packages. Reach out to our Care Advisors at 6100 0055 for more details.

Are there subsidies for Homage’s end-of-life care service?

Yes, you can apply for a financial subsidy to defray the cost of home nursing care services. Here is a list of Financial Assistance Schemes in Singapore, such as the Home Caregiving Grant, CareShield Life, and Interim Disability Assistance Programme for the Elderly (IDAPE) that might be helpful for you.

What is the shortest duration for a care visit?

The duration of a care visit starts from just one hour, and the length of the visit will depend on your family’s preferences and your loved one’s needs.

What are the signs that the end of life is near?

When someone is nearing the end of their life, you may notice the following signs:

  • Significant decrease in activity
  • Excessive sleeping
  • Cold feet and hands
  • Eating and drinking less
  • Weak pulse
  • Yellowish, greyish or purplish skin, especially in the extremities
  • Mental confusion
  • Brown, red, or dark-coloured urine
  • Noisy or irregular breathing

These signs can last for days, weeks, or months. However, the duration of these signs differs from person to person.
