Our Dorset palliative care services

At The Old Rectory, we are experts in providing dedicated palliative care Dorset residents have been benefiting from for many years. For us, palliative care is all about improving the quality of life of anyone suffering from a serious illness. This includes physical, emotional as well as spiritual care that ensures the residents have a fulfilling time for as long as they are able to.

Our home caters to all health conditions. The Old Rectory is run by friendly and caring staff members who have a great passion for helping people. You can entrust us to offer your family member or loved one the finest palliative care in Dorset has available while they stay with us. This is achieved through the development of strong personal relationships as well as engaging activities that will keep the mind and body sharp.

Our Dorset palliative care home has been decorated in a way that is both luxurious as well as homely. This provides a welcoming environment that the residents will consider to be their home and find supremely comfortable. All rooms are equipped with their own toilet and sink for maximum comfort. We also encourage new residents to bring along furniture and mementos in order to decorate their room in a familiar way. We have found that this makes the settling process a lot easier and less stressful.

The accommodation at our home is truly second to none among palliative care in Dorset providers. As mentioned above, residents are encouraged to decorate their new rooms themselves. We are also one of the very few care homes in the area that allows pets. Just let us know about it beforehand and we will make all the necessary preparations to also welcome your furry friend into The Old Rectory.
