Discussing End-of-Life Care in Sussex

What is End-of-Life Care?

End-of-life care is care that is provided to people who are nearing the end of their life. The focus of end-of-life care is on managing symptoms and providing comfort, rather than curing the underlying disease. End-of-life care can be provided in a variety of settings, including hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, and at home.

It involves managing pain and other symptoms, as well as providing psychological, social and spiritual support for both the person who is dying and their loved ones.

End-of-life care is tailored to each individual and can be provided in a care home like ours, in a hospital or hospice, or in your own home.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is a type of end-of-life care that focuses on managing symptoms and providing comfort. Palliative care can be provided alongside curative treatment, or it can be provided when a cure is no longer possible. This care can be provided in a variety of settings, including hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, and at home.
