Palliative Care

What is palliative care?

Palliative care is perhaps best described as care provided to people who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. People often reach a point where they are receiving care and support which might well include a number of health professional teams including social care support.

What is “end of life” care?

End of life care is perhaps best described as the sensitive and considered care we provide to someone who may be in the very important last few days and hours of their life.

Our approach to palliative and end of life care

In what we appreciate is a very sensitive time and one where our staff will treat people and their families with respect and dignity. We will discuss the person’s wishes and do our utmost to honour those wishes. There may be times where residents' medical needs are very high that an admission to hospital may be required. In reality this rarely happens and we have many testimonials from families thanking our staff for their care and support. 

We recognise families wish to be with their loved one and we are happy for families to stay at the home for as long as you wish and will support you with food and if possible, a bed if available. Our staff will be available to talk to and answer any questions that you may have and we work closely with external professionals to ensure people are comfortable and pain free and they too can answer any questions you have.

Our homes follow the SWAN model when “Caring for adults in the last few hours and days of life”.

There may be times where residents' medical needs cannot be met in the Home and an admission to hospital may be required. In reality this rarely happens.

We regard supporting people at end of life as a real privilege and we will work hard to ensure we get each journey right at this most important time for people and their families.
