Palliative Care

The World Health Organisation describes palliative care as an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness. Autumn Aged Care believes that when it comes to palliative care, the prevention and relief of suffering can be achieved by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain. This methodology can also allow us to relieve the suffering of further problems of a  physical, psychosocial and spiritual nature.

We follow the palliative approach and aim to improve the quality of life for residents with life-limiting illnesses and to support their families. The usual time to start a palliative approach is when treatments given to cure a condition are no longer working or when the resident chooses to stop their curative treatments. The focus of a palliative approach is on comfort and maintaining or improving quality of life so that residents can live as well as possible until they die in an atmosphere of care and support.

We offer palliative care at all out homes and specialise in:

  • Offering dignity and control in the last months of life
  • Discuss end-of-life options
  • Offer ongoing medical care
  • Manage pain
