British Home offers personalised and appropriate end of life care for people living with neuro-disability. Whether this is for a few days or over a much longer period of time, we provide a positive, comfortable environment that supports people to die with dignity.
Palliative care at British Home, which has been awarded the Platinum Care Hallmark by the Gold Standard Framework, is delivered through a multi-disciplinary team that brings together nurses, therapists and other professionals involved in a resident's care under the direction of our Director or Care and Home Manager. All residents for whom it is appropriate have an End of Life Care Plan which is followed by all staff and volunteers involved in their care and other activities at British Home.
We work with residents and carers to manage chronic pain and ongoing symptoms, and to provide as many opportunities for positive experiences for residents and their families as possible. This is supported by a programme of pastoral and emotional support for residents and their families and carers.
