What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care embodies a compassionate approach dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for individuals grappling with critical illnesses. The primary objective of our team at our Hospitality Lodges is to alleviate discomfort and tension by addressing physical, emotional, and psychological needs. This supportive care can be seamlessly integrated at any stage of an illness and is designed to complement other medical treatments.

In collaboration with medical professionals, our team at our Hospitality Lodges focuses on pain management and provides comprehensive support to both our guests and their loved ones. Recognising the often underestimated physical, emotional, and practical challenges faced by patients during times of illness, we understand that home care for palliative patients can be financially burdensome and may compromise privacy and dignity. Consequently, our dedicated team diligently follows precise instructions from healthcare specialists, ensuring adherence to prescribed medications and attendance at follow-up appointments. We closely monitor your health, recognising the uniqueness of each individual’s situation, and strive to uphold the highest standards of care.

At our Hospitality Lodges, our proficient team brings extensive experience to our palliative care, encompassing:

  • Delivering dignified care when curative interventions are no longer available.
  • Ensuring precise administration of medications.
  • Managing severe symptoms, particularly for non-mobile patients requiring round-the-clock pressure care.
  • Providing emotional and mental support not only to the patient but also to their families, friends, parents, and children.
  • Offering dedicated care during critical episodes that demand the expertise of an experienced staff.
  • Facilitating communication among various stakeholders, including family members, therapists, and other professionals.

Our Approach

At our Hospitality Lodges, our team is dedicated to providing outstanding care, ensuring your comfort throughout your stay. Beyond addressing the medical aspects of palliative care, our experienced team prioritises the emotional needs of patients, families, and friends in a respectful manner.

In situations where palliative care becomes necessary, we strive to be a guiding light for families facing unexpected challenges. Recognising the difficulty of losing a loved one, our focus extends beyond supporting the patient to caring for their loved ones as well.

We understand the profound impact of losing a loved one and, at our Hospitality Lodges, we accommodate the diverse ways in which families choose to navigate the end-of-life journey. Whether it involves visits, the presence of fur children, or saying final goodbyes, we encourage families to choose the approach that works best for them. Embracing an unconventional perspective, we believe that everyone can experience a peaceful, beautiful passing, making the most of those precious final moments.

Upon getting to know you, our team ensures a personalised understanding of your unique needs and wishes. From helping you settle into your room to learning about your requirements, we prioritise your sense of control and ease during your stay.

Once settled in, our experienced team attends to vital signs, schedules treatments, and meets ablution needs. Importantly, we approach your care with kindness, dignity, and compassion, addressing your emotional and psychological well-being. Nutrition is a key focus, with attention to fluid intake and inspiring meals to keep you energised. With a call button available 24/7, we aim to eliminate anxiety, ensuring you never feel alone or vulnerable.

Our overarching goal is to create an environment where guests feel safe, loved, and in control. With no restrictive visiting hours, you have the freedom to decide when friends and family can visit, empowering you to determine your needs on your terms.
