End of Life

We endeavour to enhance the final stages of life for our residents through a compassionate and dignified approach to care. We encourage families to be involved in the decisions around physical, emotional and spiritual care, giving them an opportunity to prepare for the death of a loved one.

We provide:

  • Pain control in consultation with physicians
  • Spiritual support
  • Emotional preparation for death—grief counselling
  • Family support
  • Support from recreation, spiritual care, physiotherapy and dietary as needed
  • Trained volunteers and staff can be present with residents to support families. This programme is called 'No one dies Alone'
  • Ongoing education/training of staff
  • Access to a palliative care suite to allow family to stay on site with their loved one
