What We Do


Ballarat Hospice Care provides 24-hour, home-based, holistic palliative care for people facing end of life issues.
The highly accredited service employs a team of specialist palliative care nurses, specialist counsellors, welfare workers, and patient and family support volunteers to support both the patient and their families.

We care for you and your carers in the context of what is important to you. We identify problems based on your physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs. Each person’s experience is unique.

Patients are our primary focus, we care passionately about delivering on our philosophy of caring for patients and their carers through both holistic palliative care, grief and bereavement counselling and the provision of a wide range of services, including equipment hire and volunteer support.
