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.

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.

Choosing the right home
Choosing which residential care home is best suited for your loved one is something that demands careful thought.
One of the ways Morris Care help is by offering trial stays, which aim to give peace of mind and allow you to experience our care first hand. During the trial stay you are able to come and visit the home whenever you like to ensure that your loved one is comfortable and happy and importantly, being cared for just how you would like.
