End of life care at a care home

If you live in a residential or care home, then the staff working there will be alongside palliative care teams in managing your end of life care with you.

You can create care plans together to make sure that your priorities are met. In a residential or care home you can receive care from staff twenty-four hours a day and have support with washing, dressing, toileting and meals.

Your friends and family are able to still support you with these tasks if they want to. It is important to communicate with staff so that you, your loved ones and staff all know what is important to you as you move towards the end of your life.
