PCSE’s New Home
This year PCSE is commencing construction of our new Wellness Centre and Community Hub at 80 Victor Crescent, Narre Warren. The upgraded facilities will enable our team to deliver a range of services onsite to support our community and provide essential care to those who need it the most. The Wellness Centre will include space for counselling rooms, therapeutic wellbeing gardens, bereavement support groups, art, music and massage therapy and other activities to support people living with a life-limiting illness.
We need your help to make this project reality and ensure PCSE is future ready, with the resources we need to meet the growing demand for our services. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will help us to fund this build and deliver long-term change to our community. To find out how you can support us please click here.
PCSE works with a range of health professionals to provide palliative care advice, support and consultancy in relation to the care of clients who may be part of your service
How are we continuing to support you through the COVID 19 pandemic
At Palliative Care South East Ltd, we are committed to supporting our community to live well. We are taking actions to ensure we align our service model with advice from the Department of Health and Human Services and support the safety and well being of our staff, volunteers and the community.
- We will continue to provide phone support and information 24/7
- In the best interests of our clients and carers, we will be undertaking our visits by phone or video conference when possible.
- We will be checking, by asking questions prior to our visits and confirming by phone and text that we are able to visit.
- This will limit travel of clients, staff and volunteers unless vital for care reasons.
- We will consider the needs of older adults, persons with disabilities, and others with access and functional challenges and prioritise our resources to ensure ongoing care and support.
- We will provide specialist phone consults to residential and aged care facilities to limit visitation and risk to those clients, we will always support their needs.
- We will follow the guidelines and advice of the Department of health and Human Services and collaborate with other community agencies to support continuity of care https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus-covid-19-daily-update.
