What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is care that helps people live their life as fully and as comfortably as possible when living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.
Because palliative care is based on individual needs, the services offered will differ but may include:
- Relief of pain and other symptom
- Resources such as equipment needed to aid care
- Assistance for families to come together to talk about sensitive issues
- Links to other services such as home help and financial support
- Support for people to meet cultural obligations
- Support for emotional, social and spiritual concerns
- Counselling and grief support
- Referrals to respite care services
What is Respite Care?
‘Respite’ or ‘respite care’ is when someone else takes care of the person you care for, so that you can have a break. A break can give you time to do everyday activities or just to relax, deal with stress and look after yourself. You can access respite care for a few hours, a few days, or longer – depending on your needs and eligibility.
How do I apply?
Before you can access government-subsidised aged care services for the first time, you need to apply for an assessment. It’s the same form to apply for all types of care and support, including help at home, short term care, and care in our aged care home. You can complete the application yourself or on behalf of a family member or friend. If you need care immediately due to unforeseen circumstances, please call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
