Palliative Care

Our palliative care service at our care home in Andover has been specially designed to holistically support our residents who are in the final stages of their lives, as well as the relatives of those residents during what is undoubtedly an emotional and difficult time.

It means a lot to us here at Harrier Grange Care Home that we are able to support those in our community in this way and our committed team of care professionals go above and beyond to ensure that our residents receiving palliative care do so in a way that is supportive, dignified, and comfortable.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, which in some circumstances may be referred to as end-of-life care, is designed to support individuals who have a terminal illness or who are in the final moments of their life, whether that be weeks, months, or years. Such illnesses can range from natural deterioration to more complex terminal illnesses.

For those receiving palliative care, comfort is of the utmost importance and it should be a priority that their pain and symptoms are reduced as much as possible, and their dignity and wishes ensured.

Palliative care doesn’t always just apply to those receiving it, but also to their friends and family. Loved ones of those receiving palliative care are given as many opportunities as possible to spend time with one another as well as receiving all the help they need to get through such a challenging time.
