Palliative/End of Life Care

End of life care – also known as palliative care – is the care of people with an illness where recovery is not expected.

We understand how difficult and emotional these situations are, which is why we provide respectful proactive care for residents and relatives in their last days of life, making sure their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are considered and met.

In particular, we focus on:

  • relief from suffering by managing physical symptoms such as pain, sickness, tiredness or loss of appetite
  • psychological care and emotional support to cope with the complex feelings experienced around death and bereavement
  • spiritual care addressing spiritual or religious needs of our residents and their families
  • understanding resident’s wishes in advance should their health start to deteriorate
