    • To provide care of the highest quality, treating patient and carer with dignity and respect. A gentle and peaceful death may ease the bereavement journey.
    • To provide support to the bereaved for a period of up to a year followiing the death. Serious illness in the bereaved is a known factor. Effective support following death can help prevent this.
