Stay With Us > End of Life Care
End of life care is intended to help those with advanced, progressive, incurable illness to live as well as possible until they die. This care supports the spiritual, physical and mental needs of both the individual and those close to them with compassion and respect. A key aspect of end of life care is the management of, and comfort from symptoms arising from an illness.
“May I thank you and all the staff of Alexandra Wing for the tender care given to my mother during the last weeks of her life and the sympathetic support offered to myself when I was with her during the last few difficult hours.” Resident’s daughter
An individual may also need strong emotional support to help them to cope with the progression of their infirmity. Care for Veterans prioritises the wishes of all its residents should the situation arise where a resident requires palliative and end of life care.
This is a major achievement for Care for Veterans, which has been delivering care of the dying for many years. This award recognises and publicly acknowledges the standard of care of the dying that is prevalent at Care for Veterans.
Our Chaplain works closely with residents who are nearing end of life, and can provide any support they may need. Find out more about our chaplaincy service.
