Care pack aims to improve life and death of extra care housing residents

Conversations about end of life care and dying can actually be positive and enable older people to fulfil long-held goals, according to a resource pack for extra care housing staff published today.

The end of life care guide acknowledges that raising such issues can be challenging for care and support staff and managers. However, the guide says, they provide opportunities for residents to talk about their remaining life goals and how they can be completed.


End of life care in extra care housing: a learning resource pack provides practical information and advice for managers and support staff working in extra care housing schemes. It covers a range of issues relating to the care of residents with a life-limiting or progressive condition.
