End of life care, also known as palliative care, is the care of people with an illness where recovery is not expected.
At Nazareth House Glasgow we understand how difficult and emotional these situations are. We aim to provide respectful proactive care, both for residents and relatives and ensuring their physical and psychological needs are being met.
We hope to relieve suffering by managing physical symptoms such as pain, sickness, tiredness or loss of appetite. Emotional car and support are available, to help one cope with the complex feelings experienced around death and bereavement. Spiritual care addressing spiritual or religious needs of our residents and their families is also available at Nazareth House Glasgow.
Most importantly, we want to understand a resident’s wishes in advance should their health start to deteriorate.
