Our approach to heart failure end of life care

Congestive heart failure patients can experience shortness of breath, fatigue, and many other symptoms. We focus on alleviating discomfort, with a 24/7 care provided by an excellent nursing staff.

We have small, cosy homes, with limited bed numbers. It's one of the ways we ensure that everybody gets personalised care.

Frequently asked questions

What does cardiac failure end of life care involve?

Cardiac conditions, like congestive heart failure, can necessitate palliative care. When the disease is severe, full time nursing care is needed. MACG homes look after a person's emotional, psychological and physical needs with qualified 24/7 support.

Can you provide palliative care for conditions other than cardiac failure?

We certainly can. Our team is capable of providing excellent palliative care for a range of different conditions, and maximise quality of life.

What does palliative care cost?

There are several factors that go into determining the cost of palliative care. For example, we take into account things like:

  • The home that is chosen
  • Specific room feature
  • The sort of medical care required

To get a more precise idea of the costs involved, reach out to our team and they'll be happy to take you through our pricing.
