This policy sets out the values, principles and practices regarding our approach to service users who die while in our care, or in hospital, while still a resident of this care home.
The policy should be used with reference to other policies on end-of-life care, including the policy on advance care planning. It is written in line with Regulation 9: Person-centred Care of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. This regulation requires service providers to ensure that the care and treatment of service users must be appropriate, must meet their needs and must reflect their preferences, including at the time of their death.
