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.
