Palliative care is about helping people living with a terminal illness and everyone affected by their diagnosis to achieve the best quality of life.

At Larchfield we have a dedicated unit in the home, staffed by a team of highly trained and professional staff. Our aims are to continue to look after the resident though their whole journey. We believe very strongly that every person should have absolute dignity in every form until that sad but inevitable ending we will all have to face.

Palliative Care improves the quality of life of patients and that of their families who are facing challenges associated with life-threatening illness, whether physical, psychological, social or spiritual. The quality of life of caregivers improves as well.

Palliative Care Nurses

In addition to providing care and support to patients, our Palliative Care Nurses help entire families through one of the toughest times any of us will face. They are invaluable to the work we do here.

Goals Of Palliative Care

The goal of palliative care is to relieve the suffering of patients and their families by the comprehensive assessment and treatment of physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs experienced by patients. Since it's based on individual needs, palliative care can be quite different from one person to the next.
