It’s a common myth that people needing Palliative Care will need to go to a hospice; Roxton care for people with a terminal illness and those who might be nearing the end of their life and require hospice care, but prefer a more comfortable and homely setting, such as our care home.
We have a holistic approach to palliative and end of life care, supporting both Residents and their loved ones throughout. Our focus is on providing quality of life through upholding and respecting individual choice and delivering effective pain and symptom management to enable Residents to live their last days in a dignified manner.
The care given during this time is entirely focused on the needs and wishes of the individual and their wider support network so that they can all feel as comfortable as possible.
Palliative and terminal care delivery will often include partnership working with community health and social care professionals, local knowledge leaders including St Giles , Macmillan and local religious leaders.
