Ballarat Hospice Care sees the Person beyond the illness

We provide a respectful service that doesn’t take over, and strive to give our patients control. By bringing trained specialists together with doctors, nurses, counsellors and volunteers in a team-based approach we make a difference to the quality of life during serious illness for both our patients and their families. We share information, explain treatment options and manage symptoms like pain, nausea, and fatigue. In-home palliative care is about treating the patient as well as the disease.
