Palliative Care

Palliative Care is the active, total support of the individual who is non responsive to curative treatments.   We recognise that more care, support, attention and understanding is required in these circumstances. Providing these are essential in our care package.  Our aim is to create a peaceful atmosphere in which people are afforded a sense of dignity and respect.  To achieve this we have a trained professional team in a modern and fully equipped facility.

The co-ordination of care greatly enhances the effectiveness and quality of attention. Our team ist1 4171786 sun and lifeencompasses all the attributes essential for care and our focus in on the following:
