There are many things to be considered as one comes to the end of life and palliative care is not simply about pain and discomfort relief but about paying attention to all things small and large which may be important to those concerned.
At Petworth Cottage Nursing Home we pride ourselves on giving time to ensure that the final weeks and months are as physically and psychologically comfortable as possible. We have close contact with palliative care specialists and our senior nurses are qualified in many aspects in addition to the straightforward nursing.
Visiting is open and as much time as is wished and appropriate for our residents' care may be spent at the home. Within our holistic approach relatives and those who are close are also supported.
