Palliative care is specialist care and support for someone living with a terminal illness. Importantly, palliative care also involves care and support for family and caregivers. Our nurses are trained in delivering the highest levels of comfort and support to those suffering terminal illness and their families. Our holistic approach to palliative care provides relief from pain and discomfort and aims to help the resident live as well as possible. Not everyone with a terminal illness will experience pain, but in almost all cases it can be relieved. Your loved one can also continue treatment aimed at curing their illness if they wish. The focus of palliative care is maintaining quality of life and meeting the needs of the resident and their families. We also have a dedicated room available if family members of our palliative care residents would like to stay overnight. The Lily Room provides a bed with ensuite bathroom and a small kitchenette.
