Palliative Care

Being able to deliver compassionate palliative care to those with a chronic or a terminal illness which is no longer responding to treatment forms a very important part of the service that we offer at Barchester Healthcare. Our specially trained palliative nursing and care staff use active care methods to improve pain control and quality of life.

Our staff work closely with the palliative care team in order to be able to give personal support to family, friends and carers throughout this time and because of the high standards of care, surroundings and privacy that we can offer, we feel that our nursing homes provide the ideal environment for the delivery of high quality palliative care.
