End Of Life Care

Nearing the end of life, or being diagnosed with a chronic or terminal illness, is a traumatic time for you and your family. Choosing end of life care with Silver Stream can ensure that you continue to receive care that meets your physical, spiritual, emotional and social needs whilst respecting your care choices, dignity and autonomy.

When you are nearing the end of your life, one of the most empowering things you can do is make plans for your care. Advanced care planning ensures that you are aware of the options and opportunities available to you. It allows you time to discuss your wishes and preferences in relation to your care with your loved ones.

Including residential care as an option offers an additional support tier when coping with your illness. All care options can be adapted and developed depending on your needs. Your care team will work in consultation with the multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals involved to ensure that the most appropriate level of care and assistance is provided at all times.

A step away from the clinical hospital setting, we can continue to provide quality medical and nursing care, but in a private, homely and caring environment. At Silver Stream we have care procedures in place so that the resident is only transferred to an acute setting when there are specific or advanced medical requirements that are outside the care practices of the nursing home. All end of life care will be provided by your personal care team, ensuring that your care is provided in a personal way, by people who know you, and understand the decisions and choices you have made in relation to your care.
