… support with dignity and compassion …
St Andrew’s philosophy to live well at the end of life is achieved by enabling a person’s preferences for quality care at this stage of life. We believe it is each person’s right to a safe environment and to receive appropriate care which includes being comfortable, and supported physically, emotionally, practically and spiritually.
Many people choose to spend this time in their own home; however, where circumstances require, St Andrews offers palliative care in our residential care facilities, providing the complete range of support for the resident, relatives and friends.
St Andrews encourages our clients and residents to consider developing an Advanced Care Plan with their families and friends. An Advanced Care Plan allows a person to make choices regarding how they wish to be cared for, including treatment they are to receive, in the event of incapacity in the future.
