Palliative Care

Our palliative care service at our care home in Aberdeen has been designed to fully support our residents who are in the final days, weeks or months of their lives, as well as their loved ones during what is understandably an emotional and difficult period.

We are proud to be able to help support individuals in our community in this way and our dedicated team of care professionals goes out of their way to ensure residents receiving palliative care experience the most dignified, comfortable, and supported time possible.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, which is commonly referred to as end-of-life care, is provided to those who have a critical illness or health condition and who are in the final weeks, months, and years of their life. Such illnesses can vary from natural deterioration to more complex terminal illnesses and conditions such as Cancer or Motor Neurone Disease.

Comfort is crucial for those receiving palliative care, with the main goal being to lessen an individual’s pain and other symptoms, ensure dignity is not compromised, as well as support them with their wishes.

Family members of those receiving palliative care are also supported by care home staff, allowing residents to spend time with their loved ones and giving them the support they need to help them get through this difficult time.
