    Palliative Care

    Resthaven provides palliative care and support for residents and clients with a chronic illness or condition.

    Palliative care is not just about end of life. When treatment focus is changed from ‘cure’ to ‘care’ it can greatly improve quality of life.

    Our philosophy aims to maintain or improve quality of life through the prevention and relief of suffering.
