Services Offered

Palliative Care in Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF) – In Hours and After Hours. The nurse practitioner and registered nurse will work closely with the resident, the resident's GP, family members and facility staff to complete a comprehensive care plan.

The outreach palliative care program provides planning, support, advice and palliative nursing care assistance to residents using a holistic approach involving family members and the RACF staff. 

Services will be provided for residents meeting eligibility criteria to receive palliative care and end of life care in their RACF, which will remove the need for the patient to be moved into alternative care. This will reduce the need to access an emergency response for non-acute situations with minimal disruption to the resident.
