  • Preparation for the end of life
  • To be comfortable in your own home
  • To die well and with dignity
  • Achieving a sense of completion
  • To neither hasten nor postpone death
  • Your psychosocial and spiritual needs, as well as your families
  • To provide support to enable you to live as actively as possible until death
  • To have support for your family
  • To have information that you understand, so that you can make good decisions

We offer well planned, coordinated care and support for end of life, that is personal to you and that enables you to remain in familiar surroundings, with close family and friends around you. When planning your care with you and your family, we take into account all the things you tell us that are important to you.

We have a small experienced team, who have the right knowledge, skills and attitude to provide end of life care that is best for you and your life. They are compassionate and appropriate, treating you as an individual, with the dignity and respect that you want. Our dedicated team will support you and your family to prepare for your death.
