Palliative Care

At Oakdene Care Home, we have created a palliative care service that supports not only our residents in their final stages of life but also their loved ones during a very difficult and stressful time.

Everyone at our care home is extremely proud to be making an impact in Wimborne Minster with our team of professionals. Our care team, always go above and beyond to ensure that our residents receiving palliative care are comfortable and get the care support that they deserve.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is end-of-life care and is provided to individuals that have a serious condition or illness. The people who require this care will be in the final stages of their life.

When receiving palliative care, it is important that our residents are comfortable. Our aim is to reduce as much pain as possible and ensure that someone’s dignity is maintained throughout their stay.

We understand seeing a loved one receive palliative care is upsetting and very difficult, so we make sure that their family and friends also feel supported during their time within our home.
