At Kenny’s Pond our goal for end of life care is to provide quality of life for our dying resident and their family. Our comprehensive holistic approach is to care for our residents who have a life limiting illness, including cancer or any other end stage illness. Our goal is to provide relief, comfort and support from the symptoms and stress of this illness, when the disease process is considered incurable.Assessments for end of life care can be conducted in consultation with other health care professionals, who are members of our resident’s care team. Following this assessment, an individualized care plan will be completed with the goal to help alleviate the resident’s pain, as well as providing symptom management to help support them through this very difficult time.
Palliative care is offered in the resident’s familiar surroundings they have chosen as their home, with caring, compassionate staff of RN’s, LPNs and direct care staff who provide optimal comfort and support to the resident and their family.
