Bereavement/Dying - Hospices/Palliative care

Palliative care providers can have complimentary listings and pages in this category.

Palliative care is about living well until death.

Palliative care is specialised care for people with a terminal illness - an illness that is progressive and has no cure. It is holistic care, addressing the physical and medical needs, as well as the emotional, social, cultural and spiritual needs of the ill person, their family, carers and community.

Palliative care aims to help the person feel in control of their treatment and their quality of life. It involves family and friends, recognising that they also need to be prepared for the death of someone they love, as well as being there to offer help and support during the grieving process. Palliative care can be provided in the person's own home, a specialist in-patient hospice, a hospital, nursing home or other health care facility.

Palliative Care Australia represents palliative care service providers and those with an interest in the area - professionals, carers and consumers. Palliative Care Australia member organisations are located in each state and territory and include the Australia & New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine.

The Standards for Providing Quality Palliative Care can be accessed on the website of Palliative Care Australia.
