Palliative Care

How can our palliative care service help you?

Dignified care

We understand that each resident is different. Where some may require more attentive care, others may only require occasional care. Whatever level of care you require, we do our utmost to ensure all residents are cared for in a kind and dignified way and live as independently as they want to, with as much help as they require.

Modern technologies

We invest in the latest technology to ensure our care is as streamlined and accurate as possible. This software improves the level of care that our residents receive, ensuring efficiency, whilst maintaining our stance as a leading care provider.

We care

We proudly have a large team of staff – from our carers to our nurses – which means we can provide our residents with the level of attention, support, and kindness they need. As a care team backed by nurses, we work together to provide the best possible level of service and all our team undergo extensive training and an induction process.

What types of care is included?

We’re here to support you at any stage of your life when you require the help of an external residence.

Those with terminal illnesses

We can provide end of life care for residents with terminal illnesses, like cancer, provide them with the support they need and keep them as comfortable as possible.

Those with conditions like Alzheimer’s

We can, to a certain level of progression, care for those with memory/cognitive loss conditions like Alzheimer’s. There are certain types of dementia we can accommodate for – please contact us to discuss further.

Frail people with conditions

Any persons who are already frail with other conditions who are at risk of suddenly worsening and/or are near end of life can come under our care.

Persons who have suffered a severe accident

In the case the individual has been in a severe accident and is suffering with life-threatening conditions as a result of their injuries.

Pain management for incurable conditions

In some cases, an individual may suffer from painful or distressing conditions that require regular care and medication to manage.

Improving quality of life

When someone is near the end of their life, it’s important to give them the best quality of life for their final days. This provides respite for their family, too.

Supporting Care Home | Brockhampton Court

Support and care when you need it most

Our palliative care service is supported by our local hospice and the local trust. We make it our goal to work closely with local authorities to provide a safe haven for residents, no matter their diagnosis. These conditions may be the end stage of cancer or palliative stage conditions of Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis frailty or other life limiting conditions. Our nursing staff work as part of the Multi-Disciplinary Team to provide comfort, dignity, respect and excellence to residents and their families during these difficult times.


Your family matters

During palliative care stays, our team do everything we can to support the family of our residents, as well as the residents themselves. We can provide additional beds and meals should family members wish to spend the night during the final days of their loved one. Additionally, we can sit and spend time with residents at times where family members need a break or are unable to visit. No matter what, we’re there for both our residents and their own family.

Frequently asked questions about Brockhampton Court

When visiting a resident, are visitors allowed to have meals on site?

Visitors are welcome to have meals with the residents in their rooms.

For palliative care residents, arrangements can be made to have a meal in the library. This should be arranged with as much notice as possible as we may need to carry out a detailed risk assessment, book the library, make arrangements with the kitchen and care workers and arrange for the room to be fogged after the visit. We do this to ensure the safety of all residents, visitors and staff.

Each meal will cost £12.00 per person. This will be added to the residents’ ‘extras’ bill.
