It's your choicea terminal illness does not have to force you from the comfort of your home
Ballarat Hospice Care sees the person beyond the illness
Ballarat Hospice Care provides specialist quality palliative care equitably and responsively in a patients home.
Palliative care is high quality, holistic health care and support for people living with a life-limiting illness while supporting carers, family and friends involved in their care.
We are a not-for-profit organisation incorporated in 1985. We were established by community members in response to community need; a need that continues to grow with an increasing population. Our community connection is essential.
We promote palliative care values within the community.
We are partly funded by government and we rely on community support to enable us to continue to make a difference.
Our values of loyalty, kindness, honesty, respect, trust, skill and willingness guide every interaction.
We value all patients, carers, their families, primary care providers and volunteers.
We offer culturally safe and inclusive care when working alongside diverse, vulnerable or marginalised communities.
