Making a difference to patients, carers and families
Palliative care is a service provided to people of any age with a life-limiting illness. When a cure is no longer the aim of treatment, palliative care focuses on maintaining the highest possible quality of life for the individual.
Palliative care is not just for patients. It is also for carers, family members, neighbours, and friends. We are here to provide support to all who need us.
Our holistic approach to care means that we walk alongside people; supporting and caring for them.
We ensure our services are responsive to the individual needs of each patient, carer and family. We provide in-home specialist palliative care, addressing physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
…thank you for the care and compassion you gave to our mother. Your service truly reflects the philosophy of palliative care.
With your care, expert help and advice, our Dad was able to stay at home where he wanted to be.
…every phone call, every visit; you gave me comfort, courage and reassurance that I needed…
Thank you for supporting us…it was an intense but precious and beautiful time we could spend together at home…
We are a team of specialist palliative care nurses, supportive care advisors, patient and family support volunteers, and compassionate administration and support staff.
Established by community members in 1985, our not for profit organisation has guided patients, and supported carers and families to live, die and grieve well.
Palliative care is about celebrating lives
Education is key to our service delivery
