Palliative Care - Northleach Court
Our palliative care service is for residents with a terminal illness who are close to the end of their journey. Dealing with things such as pain and other physical symptoms is important, but when providing palliative care at Northleach Court we believe that maximising the resident’s overall well-being and supporting them emotionally is extremely important.
The decision to begin palliative care is a collaboration between the healthcare team, family members and wherever possible, the individual. If someone has received all the treatments that might change the course of their illness or deterioration, the next step is to focus on comfort and quality of life.
Our goal is to achieve the best quality of life for residents and their families during a difficult but very important time.
