Supporting your psychological, physical and spiritual wellbeing – and your family – at this incredibly sensitive and emotional time will always be our key priority. Through expert pain management and advanced care plans we follow the Gold Standards Framework to ensure peace and tranquility – and the highest possible standard of end-of-life care.
All of our staff receive in-depth dementia awareness training enabling them to help our residents to live life to the full. We welcome relatives and friends to our training, to help them understand why their loved one behaves differently.
