Palliative care is the active holistic approach to care for residents with advanced progressive illness. Management of pain and other symptoms and the provision of psychological, social and spiritual support is paramount.
We respect each resident’s right to make informed choices about their care and treatment. We understand that this can become increasingly difficult to manage on their own as their health deteriorates. Our nurses are here to support and assist with all their nursing and medication needs and be a voice for them when they are unable to speak for themselves.
We understand that each elderly person who has nursing and care needs would like to remain in their own home for as long as possible. By offering respite care we can provide a service that allows the resident and their carers to have regular breaks, so that they can then return to their own home refreshed to help maintain their independence for longer.
The following are just some of the positive things that our clients are saying about Sandown Nursing Home and our team or qualified staff. We are pleased to find that our service is such a success and can be so beneficial to so many individuals
