End of life care in Romsey, Hampshire

With 28 bedrooms in a converted Georgian gentleman’s residence just north of Romsey town centre, Cedar Lawn Nursing Home in Hampshire offers exceptional nursing, respite and end of life care in tranquil, gracious surroundings. 

The primary purpose of end of life, or palliative, care is to enable an individual to live as well as they possibly can for the remaining months or years of their life. Privacy, dignity and respect are fundamental to this objective. Operated by Allegra Care, Cedar Lawn’s person-centred care philosophy embodies and prioritises these values, striving to ensure that all palliative care residents have the very best quality of life possible throughout the time they have left. 

These values are equally important to loved ones and family. Knowing that an elderly or dying relative is in compassionate, caring hands can make an enormous difference during very difficult and distressing times.

What is end of life and palliative care? 

For those living with a terminal illness, end of life care sees the emphasis shift from curing the illness to supporting the individual and making sure they are as comfortable as possible. Due to the holistic approach of palliative care, this support encompasses every aspect of a person’s wellbeing – from the practical and physical to the emotional, psychological and spiritual.

From managing symptoms to planning for the future, palliative care prioritises the immediate to medium-term needs of an individual and their loved ones.
