  • 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.

How we can help

Palliative Care
If you have been told you have an illness that cannot be cured, you may have talked about palliative care.

 

Carer Support
Palliative Care South East understands that it can be overwhelming to care for a loved one, particularly if you’ve had no training or experience in looking after someone with a serious illness.

 

Work with us
Palliative Care South East is an attractive and principled employer. This means sustaining a positive culture which values and is supportive of its employees and volunteers.

 

Volunteers
Palliative Care South East was founded by volunteers back in 1984. The philosophy of the early founders lives on in our volunteers.

 

How you can help
Your generous donation, no matter how big or small, will help us to continue to support our community by providing care to those living with a terminal illness and their families and friends.
