Palliative care is specialised health care and practical support for people living with a life threatening illness.
It is provided in the home, aged care or other residential care facility and hospital or hospice settings. Palliative care sees the patient and family as one and family as the people who are significant from the patient's perspective.
At Ballarat Hospice Care Inc. our experienced palliative care staff provide not only expert pain and symptom management as part of any ongoing treatment, but also emotional and other practical support services for the individual and their families. Our focus is to provide quality of life, to end of life care. Palliative care is an adjunct to ongoing treatment and can be delivered from diagnosis to bereavement.
