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.
For PatientsPalliative care focuses on quality of life for patients and their families, who are facing problems associated with life-threatening illness. Ballarat Hospice cares for you and your carers by identifying your individual needs and concerns based on your physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs. Read More
