Palliative care is a sensitive and often difficult topic to broach with loved ones. We understand that moving into a care home when living with a life-limiting illness can feel like giving up. In reality, we find it’s the opposite.
Our teams are trained to relieve the symptoms of a wide range of conditions, and it’s our express purpose to improve quality of day-to-day life.
We take a holistic approach. So, we’re not just alleviating pain and managing medication, we’re there to offer complete support for our residents’ emotional well-being, too. Making time to talk, demonstrating that everyone has real value; we’ve seen how these little details, the things that are all too easy to take for granted, have a real impact on residents’ outlook and feelings of fulfilment.
We design care plans around each individual’s physical, medical and emotional needs, and ensure their dignity is maintained at all times. That means making their priorities our priorities too. We foster a sense of community and encourage social interaction, lay on suitable activities and entertainment, and welcome frequent visitors from family and friends.

- My wife has suffered over recent years major health problems culminating in an inoperable back condition and dementia problems. Her medical doctor and hospital advised 24 hour care home as she would not get this at home. I had my son and daughter search very quickly to find a suitable home which was difficult. I has previous knowledge of homes as I had an elderly relation in one some time ago, but I must admit it did have failings. We fortunately had luck in locating a vacancy at the Kingswood Court Care Home which had all the facilities to meet ours and my wife’s criteria. She has now been in this home 5 months and we as a family have no complaints.
