Palliative Care Homes and End of Life Care

What Is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, which includes end of life care, is support for people with a life limiting illness to relieve their symptoms and improve their quality of life.

We understand that this can be a sensitive time, which is why our caring and compassionate teams at our palliative care homes offer support to residents’ families and friends, providing advice or an opportunity to talk.

As well as managing clinical needs such as pain, sickness, tiredness or loss of appetite, we look at a person’s overall wellbeing including emotional, social and spiritual support.

The home works together with the resident, family and friends, to create personalised care plans and get to know the individual and what is and isn’t important to them to make their stay as comfortable as possible.

When Should Someone Be Offered Palliative Care?

Palliative care can be used at any stage during a terminal illness and alongside treatments, therapies and medicines that control symptoms.
