To be able to provide care and support to residents at any stage is a privilege, but we are proud to be able to help support those in our community and their loved ones during an emotional and difficult time. Our team of highly-skilled nurses and care professionals go above and beyond to ensure residents receiving palliative care feel as comfortable, supported, and dignified as possible.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care, also often referred to as end-of-life care, is designed for those with terminal illnesses and those who are in the last weeks, months, and years of their life. Such illnesses and conditions vary from natural degeneration to complex terminal pathologies.
When receiving palliative care, individuals should be made to feel as comfortable as possible, with the primary goal being to minimise pain and symptoms, ensure dignity, and support the individual’s wishes.
Support is also given to the loved ones of those receiving palliative care, enabling them to spend time together and also providing them with the help they need to face such a challenging time.
