Being occupied and having your time fulfilled is an important part of everyone’s life. A social event is always something to look forward to, to enjoy at the time and then look back on and reflect on. We have a dedicated activities co-ordinator whose mission is to help residents maintain existing interests and develop new interests as needs change.
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.
