St Catherine’s provide specialised Palliative Care for residents who have an advanced illness with no likelihood of recovery.
Treatment addresses management of symptoms, ensuring the resident is as comfortable and pain free as possible. Our professional and skilled team provide high-quality compassionate care, supporting the resident to be as comfortable as possible whilst ensuring family members and loved ones are included, supported and encouraged to be involved in decisions affecting end of life care.
It is important upon admission that nursing staff are aware of the resident’s wishes with respect to treatment of a deteriorating condition. Advance care planning is one of the ways this can be done.
At St Catherine’s we endeavour to ensure a resident is treated with the upmost dignity and compassion throughout their stay.
