Supporting patients and families through life-threatening illnesses
Palliative care is the active holistic care of patients with advanced, progressive and life-threatening illnesses. The goal of our palliative care service is to achieve the best quality of life and comfort for patients and their families.
Our District Nurses embrace the core elements of supportive care, including the management of pain and other symptoms and the provision of psychological, social and spiritual aid. We provide support for treatment and condition management from pre-diagnosis, through to the process of diagnosis and treatment, to cure, continuing illness or death and bereavement.
We are passionate about offering a support system that integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of care and allows our patients to live as actively as possible until death. We also believe it’s vital to provide support for families that helps them to cope with the illness process.
