Palliative Care

At our care home in Lanark, we have created a palliative care service that supports our residents and their families during a difficult and extremely emotional time.

Our team of care professional are proud to support residents Beechgrove Care Home and always go the extra mile to ensure that they have a comfortable and well-supported stay.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, also known as end-of-life care, is a type of medical care provided to individuals who have a terminal illness or are in the final stages of their life, which can range from natural deterioration to more complex terminal conditions.

The primary objective of palliative care is to ensure that the individuals receiving care are comfortable, with a focus on reducing their pain and other symptoms, maintaining their dignity, and supporting their wishes.

In addition to providing care to the individuals, loved ones are also given support during this challenging time, allowing them to spend quality time together and receive the assistance they need.
