Palliative Care

We are proud to provide palliative care to our community of Longfield, Kent. This care service has been created to support not only our residents in the final moments of their lives but also their loved ones who are of course going through an extremely difficult time.

Hazelwood Care Home are able to support our local area because of our team of committed care professionals who all go the extra mile to make sure that our residents receiving palliative care have a comfortable stay.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, often referred to as end-of-life care, is provided to individuals who have a terminal illness or are in the final weeks, months, and years of their life. The range of conditions requiring palliative care can vary from natural deterioration to more complex terminal illnesses.

The utmost priority in palliative care is to ensure comfort for those receiving it. The primary objective is to alleviate their pain and manage other symptoms while preserving their dignity and respecting their wishes.

Furthermore, palliative care extends support to the loved ones of those receiving it, allowing them to spend quality time together and providing the assistance they need during this challenging period.
