At Alderwood we are passionate about providing the best possible end of life care to our residents and we take the time to truly understand their needs, as well as those of their family.  We are generally the preferred  place of choice for our residents to spend their final days surrounded by their family, in the familiarity of  their home being supported by our dedicated, highly trained team. We ensure that both the needs of the residents and their loved ones are catered for with the utmost dignity in order that they can spend as much quality time together during these precious days.

Quality time and care

Our letters of thanks stand testament to the care services we provide all residents, with palliative care residents offered the support they need in order for their wishes to be carried out. ‘Care and kindness’ are two words that crop up time and time again from our residents and their families who have benefitted from the services from Alderwood and that is because care and kindness are deeply rooted in everything we do from our residential services to nursing care.
