What’s Involved In Palliative Care?
Palliative care is a service available for individuals who find themselves with life-limiting illness or complex medical needs. Its aim is to make the individual as comfortable as possible by managing their pain and other symptoms. However, this care can also extend above and beyond pain management. Care homes now offer holistic approaches that include psychological, social and spiritual support.
Eventually, end of life care may be required to take over from palliative care. This tends to happen when residents move into the last months or years of their life.
What is provided with Palliative Care?
Here at Lovett Care Homes, our friendly, experienced and qualified teams are well prepared to deliver palliative care to the highest standard. We understand that every resident is different and therefore, may require different care plans. That’s why we ensure that the resident’s needs, wishes and beliefs are always represented by working with them to produce a personalised care plan.
To ensure that our team is living up to that and acting with the utmost respect and dignity, personalised care plans are also regularly updated and reassessed. When you choose Lovett Care, residents receive:
- Access to 24-hour nursing care from registered nurses
- Pleasant, comfortable accommodation
- Regular assessments by qualified nurses
- Medication support and management
- Physical assistance and personal care
- Social and emotional support
- Delicious, well-balanced meals
Lovett Care understands the importance and the impact of a holistic approach to palliative care. That’s why we strive to meet the emotional, mental and spiritual needs of each of our residents as well as managing their comfort. To do this, important aspects of day-to-day lives such as nutrition, companionship, exercise and mental stimulation are included in individual care plans amongst the management of their physical symptoms.
