Palliative Care

Palliative care is about living for as long as possible in the most satisfying way you can, within the limits of your illness. It’s not simply about dying. Managing symptoms is an important part of this Values. Palliative care addresses physical symptoms such as pain or nausea as well as helping with emotional, spiritual and social needs.

At St. Sergius we offer a holistic approach to the care of those who have a terminal condition. Our aim is to provide support, to manage pain and improve quality of life and by addressibg any distressing symptopms, always showing respect and kindness.

We believe that the best quality of life possible becomes the priority and encourage all consumers to fulfil as many aspects of their life that they are able to manage both independently and with assistance.

While end of life isn't an easy discussion to have, it's always recommended to undertake advance care planning. Coming to the end of life has strong emotional and psychological impact, Advanced Care planning is an effective way to make difficult decisions that lie ahead.

Our Advanced Care planning process gives the family, doctors and our care team a clear understanding of the persons values, health issues and what they would take from their future care.
