End of Life Care & Support in Essex

Palliative Care in Essex


We all want the best possible palliative care for our loved ones when they come to the end of their lives. This care involves physiological support and pain relief, but also social and emotional support for the person at the end of their life, as well as for their family.

In Essex there are fantastic palliative care services that work in hospices, hospitals, care homes and in the community.  Including NHS care and a comprehensive list of local hospices, our guide to palliative care in Essex can help you to find out what help is available near your relative.
