Our compassionate and sensitive carers work throughout London taking care of the physical needs and emotional well-being of those approaching the end of their life.
We work closely with community palliative teams, local hospices, family and friends to make sure the care they receive is specifically tailored to their needs and wishes.
Their dignity and comfort are our priority. What they want and how they wish to spend their last days will guide the care we deliver.
Is your loved one’s illness becoming more advanced?
Are they becoming more frail, less responsive and in need of frequent assistance?
Are they dependent on you or others for all their personal care needs?
At Tiggo Care we’ll help to reduce the overwhelming coordination of care. We’ll work with you to address any concerns or queries you may have and design a care plan that meets your loved one’s specific needs.
Our end-of-life care team is specially trained to provide unobtrusive support where and when it is needed. They’ll tend to your loved one’s physical needs with sensitivity and compassion and ensure they’re made as comfortable as possible.
They’ll be on hand to support them emotionally too, to listen to their concerns, offer reassurance and ensure their wishes are acted upon. Whether they want to be surrounded by friends and family, engaging in their favourite past-time, or getting out in the fresh air, wherever possible and if their condition permits, our carers will ensure your loved one’s remaining days are spent doing the things they enjoy.
Rather than receiving care from whoever is available at the time, at Tiggo Care, we’ll assign the same small team of two or three carers to your loved one, who’ll understand their preferences, know their routine and take care of their needs. They’ll form a bond with your loved one, which will help to boost their well-being and overall quality of life.
Hospitals are often chaotic and confusing environments, which can add to the anxiety and overwhelm that many patients and their families feel. Our end-of-life care team will support and care for your loved one in their own home, surrounded by the things they love and all that is familiar to them so that they spend their final weeks and months in a place where they feel safe, comfortable and at ease.
As your loved one’s health starts to deteriorate, rest assured our end-of-life carers will be on hand to notice and respond to changes in their condition, however subtle. They’ll react quickly and calmly to any emergency and ensure that you are notified straight away.
With your loved one receiving care at home, should you wish to drop in and see how they are, you won’t be constrained by strict visiting times. Unlike hospitals, you’ll be able to visit your loved one whenever you would like and for as long as you would like.

Whatever your care needs and wherever your loved one is on their care journey, please contact us and let’s talk. We're here to help.
Our End of Life Care is based on personal experience
We understand, first-hand how important it is to secure flexible and bespoke home care for your loved one.
“Tiggo Care is born out of my own personal experiences, following my struggle to find suitable care for my parents, both of whom lived with rare diseases..."
Chris Williams - Tiggo Care Founder
At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.
We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.
Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.
We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice
At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.

Our care manager will arrange a free consultation with you at your loved one’s home to better understand your requirements, create a personalised care plan and pair your loved one with a suitable carer.
And that’s it. You’re all set! We’ll introduce you to your loved one’s carer and the whole team, who’ll be able to provide you with all the ongoing support you’ll need.
End-of-life care is the provision of support and treatment for those approaching the end of their life. It aims to ensure that people who are dying, live as well as possible until they pass away and that when they die, they do so with dignity and respect.
Palliative care is provided to those with an incurable illness. It aims to make people as comfortable as possible by managing their pain as well as providing them with psychological, emotional and spiritual support. Although it includes end-of-life care, palliative care can last much longer, sometimes for years.
Our carers will work with a multi-disciplinary team of palliative care experts to manage your loved one’s pain at home as well as look after their emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being. It’s a holistic form of care, dealing with the whole person rather than just their physical symptoms.
The main purposes of palliative care for cancer patients are to relieve their pain, improve the quality of their life and where possible prolong their life. As part of this care offer, support and comfort will also be extended to the patient’s family members and friends.
The duration depends on the type and severity of the patient’s condition. It can last a relatively short time, in the case of someone expected to die within a few days, or it could last months. In most cases, end-of-life care lasts between two and eight weeks.
