Our palliative approach to care aims to ensure quality of life, comfort and support for loved ones and their family and friends. Palliative care is about providing support, care and love for a person whose illness means that they are unlikely to recover.
We aim to improve our residents’ quality of life to ensure a comfortable stay during this period. We have registered nurses and Nurse Practitioners with palliative care expertise and we also partner with local doctors to ensure best practice in symptom management of pain, provision of comfort and respect. Emotional, physical and social support, is also provided as part of our palliative care nursing approach.
