Palliative care is a highly specialised form of medical care focusing on providing pain relief and management of symptoms from a serious or terminal illness. It is often required as a person nears the end of their life and can be provided in a hospital, hospice or home setting. We offer high quality palliative care services, undertaken with dignity and compassion and in full partnership with the patient and their loved ones. Our teams are dedicated to providing this additional layer of continuing care at what can be a very difficult time for people living with serious medical conditions.
Our palliative care team will support you or your loved one during the last months or years of life, working with you to help you live your life as well as possible, to make arrangements for after your death and to support you and your loved ones in your grief and concern. We can help coordinate your care, liaising with doctors, nurses, therapists and other medical professionals involved in your treatment.
As a family, we had never even considered placing my mum into a care home, and I can honestly say it was one of the most difficult decisions to make. Due to Covid restrictions, we were not able to visit Mum, but the staff were kind and compassionate and always there to reassure us that Mum was being cared for well. I would initially call daily and was never made to feel this was inconvenient. Prior to being able to visit, we were able to set up Skype calls with Mum, and this allowed us to see her and also witness the care provided. Now we can visit, the care taken to avoid cross-infection is commendable, and seeing first-hand the loving care Mum receives is heart-warming. The carers all work at a high standard, and their passion for their work is clear to see. The staff at Oatlands feel like one big family, and the dementia care they provide is outstanding. Many thanks to the amazing carers and lovely reception team for their continued hard work in these extremely difficult times.
