End of life care at a care home

If you live in a residential or care home, then the staff working there will be working 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 can still support you with these tasks if that is what you both want. 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.
