This home is committed to providing high-quality and compassionate care and support for service users and their relatives, carers and loved ones during the end stage of their life. The home will treat everyone with the utmost respect, compassion and dignity, supporting them where possible to make advance decisions relating to their care and treatment, and respecting their preferences. It will comply with all standards and regulations for high-quality end-of-life care as described below.
This policy sets out the values, principles and practices underpinning the home’s approach to the care of service users who are terminally ill and whose death may be imminent.
The current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has raised specific challenges for care home service users, their families and the staff with regard to End of life Care provision. Care home service users are particularly vulnerable to the infection and therefore outbreaks in care homes may prove to be devastating.
