Palliative Care

Types of Services

When developing an appropriate palliative care plan several factors may be considered. For example, the nature and level of your health and support needs; your existing support network and coping skills; and, your preferences and choices for care and support.

With an appropriate palliative care plan constructed, in consultation with your multidisciplinary team and family members, the services provided may include:

  • The relief of pain and other symptoms associated with your life-limiting or terminal illness.
  • Help with general domestic duties, personal hygiene, continence management, nursing care and pressure-area care, as well as carer support.
  • Mobility and dexterity aids where required.
  • Psychological and spiritual support for you and your family throughout the palliative care process.
