Hands on top of one another comforting

Palliative Care

At Westerton, we provide palliative care at our care home in Glasgow which has been designed to provide around-the-clock, compassionate care for people who are in the final days, weeks or months of their lives. We also support their families during this time in what is understandably an emotional time.

We provide comprehensive care and support for people in the community and our care staff go above and beyond to ensure residents receiving palliative care have a dignified and comfortable experience.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, also referred to as end-of-life care, is a care service offered to those who are living with a critical illness or health condition and who are nearing the end of their life. This could be due to natural deterioration that comes with old age or because someone has a terminal illness or life-threatening health condition.

Ensuring a person is as comfortable as possible is the main goal when palliative care is provided in a care establishment, by reducing an individual’s pain and symptoms, as well as ensuring dignity is maintained, and any wishes are fulfilled.

Loved ones are also supported by care staff, and residents can spend time with their families whilst everyone receives adequate support to help get them through this undeniably difficult time.
