Palliative Care

For when the person will not be getting better, our Palliative care Assistants are specially trained in palliative nursing to make sure that the patient is comfortable and supported at all times.  Supervised by our lead Clinical Nurse,  personalised care plan will be created with the aim to treat and manage pain, as well as any other physical symptoms. This plan can also support with any psychological, social or spiritual needs and can encompass End of Life Care when the time comes.

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family.

Good palliative care is not just about supporting someone in the last months, days and hours of life, but about enhancing the quality of life for patients and those close to them at every stage of the disease process from diagnosis onwards.

A palliative care approach should be considered alongside active disease management from an early stage in the disease process.

The term ‘palliative care’ is often grouped together with other similar terms such as ‘hospice care’ and ‘end-of-life care’ and are sometimes thought of as the same type of care. In reality, all three are different; palliative care is an umbrella term that also includes end-of-life and hospice care within it.

Palliative care focuses on the person, not the disease, and applies a holistic approach to meeting the physical, practical, functional, social, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and carers facing progressive illness and bereavement.

Studies show that patients want to be treated as individuals, with dignity and respect, and to have their voices heard in decisions about treatment and care.
