End Of Life/PALLIATIVE CARE
At Gold Care Homes we also provide End of Life as well as a Palliative care tailored to suit each resident’s requirements and requests.

Our nursing staff and their team at each care home provides day to day help like washing, dressing, having meals and moving around the home. Special activities are also offered to help residents to stay mobile, active and independent. We also provide a more specialised care service on request to suit residents who have a severe disability, a serious long-term condition or very restricted mobility.
Requests can be made by residents at any time during a residency to introduce End of Life care so that we can work together with other medical professionals and therapies to treat residents’ medical condition until such time as it can be changed to End of Life care where we try to help manage a resident’s pain levels but we also try to ease other distressing conditions, while providing psychological, spiritual and social support for them and their family members.
We provide all our staff opportunities for learning and polishing their skills and development to ensure that the care they give is not only the best possible, but is also delivered professionally and keeping up to date with research and changes that improve the care industry every day.
