Palliative Wellness

Support for you and you carers to stay positive and well during the end stages of life.

Benefits

If you are caring for someone who has a serious life-limiting condition or you need support through the end stages of life, the Palliative Care Wellness program can help.   

Designed by qualified clinicians, our Palliative Care Wellness program can help you or who you care for, be as comfortable as possible and have important life decisions and preferences supported. We understand that planning for end of life care can be daunting and have designed the Palliative Care Wellness program to ensure you remain as active and independent as possible.

The Palliative Care Wellness program supports you and your carer to have sensitive conversations about end of life care with your health professionals. You will also be provided with information about the pathways available to different levels of medical and wellness support that is appropriate to your end of life care.

About the program

When you join the Palliative Care Wellness program our clinical staff will assess your health condition and discuss how to best support you and your carer. As you progress through the program, clinical staff will monitor your progress and can adjust the program as your needs change. You and your carer will also be supported to set goals and clinical staff will help you to achieve those throughout the program. You will also be supported to connect with local services that may assist you.

The program is delivered once a week in a face-to-face group session spread across 16 weeks, which both you and your carer are able to attend. There is no obligation to finish or attend all sessions. The sessions provide a supportive and positive environment to share any challenges you face or concerns you have about your end of life care. You will also find the groups a great opportunity to connect with people who share similar experiences as you.

The Palliative Care Wellness program is available in a variety of regions across New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland, the Northern Territory and the ACT.
