What our residents have to say

Frequently asked questions

How will you support my family?

Our care teams work with you to establish a care plan you are happy with. This includes guardianship and advanced care directive, as well as offering support for your family, relatives, or representative. We support families at the end stage of life.

What conditions qualify for palliative care?

Many people believe palliative care is only offered at the end stage of life, but this is not true. For some people, a palliative approach may be beneficial from time of diagnosis with a serious life-limiting illness. You will undergo an assessment by the relevant medical service to understand if you, or a family member, requires palliative care.

Who will be involved in my care?

We will work with your medical team and designated representative or family member and—most importantly, you—to establish and deliver your care plan. Your medical team can include your GP, your illness specialist, a psychologist, and any other qualified medical professionals involved in your treatment.

Can my relative stay overnight?

Yes, we can provide space for family members to access for overnight stays. We will make arrangements with you at the appropriate time.
