I became, in my own mind, part of this family. And they've looked after me with all my needs and it's made me very happy.
At MACG, we offer the best possible palliative care, also known as end of life care. We provide the best medical and emotional support we can for residents and their families.
We offer respite care, because the carers of people in palliative care are prone to emergencies too, and also long term end of life care. Our ethos is to be there when you need us, with personalised help.
Have any questions? We'd be happy to answer them.
People nearing the end of their life are prone to experience health emergencies. In these times, it is important to have expert medical professionals nearby to perform palliative care emergency medicine.
But at MACG, we don't just provide the medical help that you'd expect from palliative care in the emergency department. Quality of life has a number of different factors, from the physical to the emotional and spiritual. We focus especially on fostering small, caring homes with a warm, personal touch.
