What is Palliative Care?

Also known as end-of-life care, palliative care is a service that supports individuals in the final stages of their lives, which can be due to old age or a terminal illness or disease.

This approach to care means our residents are provided with a comfortable environment and assistance around-the-clock. In addition to this, this tailored care service ensures our residents continue to have respect and dignity and that any of their wishes are met.

At Alexander House Care Home, we think it is important that not only our residents receive support for their wellbeing but also their families and our team of professionals extend their services to help our resident’s loved ones during this tough time.
