Some type of palliative care is given to 45,000 new patients each year in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
Morris Care provides palliative care to improve the quality of life for those living with long term illnesses, by relieving the symptoms, pain and stress which often goes hand in hand with these situations.
Anyone facing a life threatening illness will need a degree of support, and here at Morris Care we ensure we are here to provide this and make you or your loved one feel as comfortable as possible.
Available at our care homes
About Palliative Care
We offer sensitive and compassionate palliative care to help manage physical symptoms such as pain, sickness, tiredness or loss of appetite, together with emotional and practical support. Our team is on hand to help you or your loved one at every stage.
In each palliative care home, our nurses and carers are trained in the National Gold Standards Framework (GSF) which ensures that there is a plan and an opportunity to provide excellent care at every step of someone’s journey.
The framework ensures that we offer the highest standards of clinical and emotional care by up-skilling and training our team and allowing residents and families to make decisions about how they wish to be cared for at the end of their lives. The framework also encourages proactive management of end of life care so family members understand and respect an individual’s wishes in advance should health deteriorate.
We have a number of homes offering palliative care Shropshire and one home in Cheshire.
Our care programmes also support family members at this difficult time and through our links with local groups we are able to give you practical advice and further support if you wish.

March at Morris Care
As we look forward to spring, March brings some exciting social activities and clubs for our residents to enjoy.
How to keep warm in winter
Just as we thought spring was approaching, temperatures across Shropshire and Cheshire are set to plummet this weekend and over the course of next week, with temperatures reaching as low as -8°C in the middle of the day. A cold snap referred to as “beast from the east” is set to plunge temperatures in the UK below freezing as cold air makes its way over from Siberia.
Bilingualism and Dementia
Various studies state that learning a second language is much easier when you are younger and in the “critical period”, when your brain is more absorbent. This could be the reason why many of us shy away from taking on the challenge of learning another language in our later years, because we think it will be too hard or too time consuming.
