We are a small residential home with 45 residents many of those living with dementia.
Our purpose, is to raise awareness, and highlight the importance of making plans for end of life care and afterwards.
We plan to have different themes for each day, i.e. day one funeral information, day two Hospice information. etc.
COFFEE MORNING 16th MAY: We have the Rev. Catherine Oldfield coming along to give a chat to our residents, and offer spirtual support and reassurance.
Catherine works with patients at Pendleside hospice, we have a Mcmillan nurse coming to give support & advice on cancer treatments.
We also have Louise a highly experienced nurse in Pallative care.
Louise will be there to give residents & families lots of advice on end of life treatments & preferred priorities of care.
The Preferred Priorities for Care (also known as PPC) is for anyone who wishes to plan for their future end of life care.
The PPC gives residents & families a chance to think about, talk about and write down what they would like to happen with the care they want at the end of their life.
