’EPIC’ Early Palliative Intervention Clinic.
Palliative Care South East is very proud to announce the launch of our Early Palliative Intervention Clinic (EPIC) located in Cranbourne.
The EPIC Clinic is a pilot venture funded with the generous assistance of Better Care Victoria. The EPIC Clinic is open Tuesdays to people with a life limiting illness, who are stable and able to attend the EPIC Clinic in Cranbourne.
Research indicates that early access to palliative care services greatly benefits the quality of life of those diagnosed with a life limiting illness. The EPIC Clinic is a multi-disciplinary clinic offering Nursing, Social Work, Occupational Therapy, Counselling and Massage Therapy services. We also offer a Carer Education and Support program where carers of PCSE Clients can come and be supported in a safe environment. As an EPIC Client you will have access to our 24 hour phone support service.
The EPIC Clinic provides support for:
- Symptom Management
- Making choices about your care and quality of life
- Advance care planning
- you to have more control
- Carers through our Education programs and Volunteer peer support
When clients become too unwell to attend the EPIC Clinic they can be transitioned to our Home Care Service where care will continue through to end of life. Bereavement support is also available to carers and families as required.
For further information please call our Intake Team on 03 5991 1300 to discuss the benefits of being an EPIC client in more detail or download the EPIC Brochure.
Dying is part of living and you are still living when you are dying
