Palliative Level Care

Palliative Care, supports and cares for those who have been diagnosed with a life limiting condition.
With specialised training in Palliative care our team are here to ensure every step of the journey is made with comfort, understanding and respect.

Palliative care is specialised medical care for people living with a life limiting condition. Care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. The team at McKenzie Healthcare aim to improve quality of life for both the Resident and the family.

 

We provide information to not only those requiring the Palliative care but also to family and friends supporting the resident through this time. We aim to equip you with the knowledge to make the best decisions and support you through the process. 

McKenzie HealthCare has a dedicated wing called "The Smith unit" comprising two beautifully appointed, large ensuite bedrooms, a kitchenette and a lounge area, with the ability to convert into a sleeping area for family. Located in a private wing with it's own entrance the Smith unit provides a quiet and personal area where you can support and share time with your loved one.
