At Rosewood, we are proud to offer dementia specific aged care facilities for people that require specialised dementia care. We understand the overwhelming effect that dementia can have on a family.
Our highly qualified team has extensive experience in providing specialised care to people suffering from dementia and their families who may be struggling to provide their loved one with the care they need. We recognise the importance of liaising with family members and including them in decisions about the specialised dementia care their loved one is receiving. We are constantly reviewing our dementia aged care homes to ensure that our residents are able to regain some of their independence in a safe and secure environment.
At Rosewood, we believe that palliative care encompasses more than just physical care, but involves providing a person with the respect and dignity they deserve.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care involves providing a person with a long-term or terminal illness with the physical, social, emotional and spiritual support they need. At Rosewood, we place great emphasis on maintaining a person’s comfort and quality of life during a time where they may feel their condition is overwhelming them.
Importantly, we understand that family members often want to be involved in their loved one’s care, so we work hard to ensure that families are consulted and kept up to date.
What kind of support is provided?
Our dedicated team works closely with specialist doctors and other health professionals to ensure that palliative care is tailored to a person’s individual circumstances and to assist them in managing their symptoms and pain. Our facilities are well-equipped with the resources and equipment needed to provide quality palliative care.
