Palliative Care

Palliative Care is provided to individuals who need additional support during the final stages of their lives and allows them to spend their final moments with their loved ones. Our care home in Hinckley, Leicestershire takes pride in the support that we are able to offer our local community and our team of committed professionals always go the extra mile to make sure our residents receiving palliative care are treated with respect and are in a comfortable environment throughout.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, also referred to as end-of-life care, is a form of support given to individuals with a terminal illness or those in the final stages of their lives, which may be due to a gradual decline in health or complex medical conditions.

The primary objective of palliative care is to provide comfort, assistance, and relief from pain and other symptoms experienced by the person. The care delivered ensures the preservation of the individual’s dignity and the utmost respect for their wishes.

Moreover, palliative care extends its support to the loved ones of those receiving care, enabling them to spend quality time together and offering the necessary assistance and support to navigate through an emotional and challenging period.
