Palliative care for cardiac disease

24/7 care at Epping’s leading aged care residence

Our veteran medical team and staff create a safe and comfortable home for residents managing cardiac diseases and those requiring end-of-life care.

How our palliative care benefits residents with cardiac disease

Cardiac disease is a broad category of conditions with an equally broad array of symptoms and impairments. Our approach to palliative centres on our residents’ needs and concerns, which can evolve from day to day. 

In order to create a secure and dignified home for our residents, we’ll work with their chosen specialists and adapt all of our therapies and medical services to suit their capabilities.

  • 24/7 care for cardiac patients of all mobility levels
  • Pain management through medication and physical therapy
  • Tailored end-stage heart failure palliative care

A home-like environment

At the risk of sounding cliché, we want to create a home, not a house. Palliative care isn’t just about medical intervention, but about creating a warm, welcoming and comforting space where our residents can find support and camaraderie during life’s natural highs and lows.

"What can I say about this place, very beautiful, hotel like residential place. I recently booked one of their dining rooms to celebrate an occasion with my mother, and we had a great time. The room was all equipped to ensure all guests were happy."

Frequently asked questions

If you’d like to discuss specific queries and concerns with us directly, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

How do you care for residents at different stages of heart failure?

We tailor every therapy and treatment to meet our residents' medical needs and physical capabilities.

The Australian Heart Research Institute lists four stages of heart failure. The earliest stage is an ‘at risk’ diagnosis, where the patient can still engage in ordinary physical activity. At the final stage, the patient is in an advanced state of immobility and cannot carry out basic day-to-day activities without discomfort or pain.

Residents in palliative care for cardiac disease typically struggle to exert themselves for significant periods of time; some are even entirely bedbound. We facilitate in-house therapies, medical professional visits, and telehealth appointments with caregivers to ensure all of our residents get the care they need.

Do you offer palliative care for other conditions?

Oxa Care offers palliative care for residents living with:

  • Stroke
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Motor neurone disease
  • Lung disease
  • Dementia
  • Cancer

We’re ready for the difficult conversation

Sometimes, compassion calls for bluntness, so forgive us for being blunt. Cardiac disease can take a person’s life instantly and unexpectedly. We have a conversation with each of our residents about their end-of-life requests, which cover everything from pain management to do-not-rescue rules. 

These are sensitive conversations, and we will provide you and your loved ones with all the support and guidance you need to ensure all parties agree to and are aware of everything that will happen and why.
