Palliative Care

Care in your own home for people with a terminal illness

If you have a terminal illness, you may decide that you would prefer to go home rather than staying in hospital.

Our palliative care services can provide complex nursing care, personal care, and support 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure you receive quality care in the comfort of your own home.

To make sure you remain comfortable and free from pain, we provide:

  • Medication and pain management including syringe drivers, ongoing monitoring and support
  • Assessment and care planning
  • Symptom management for comfort
  • Wound and stoma care
  • Managing drains
  • Skin integrity and pressure area
  • Personal care such as bathing and grooming
  • Psychological and spiritual support
  • Education and support for you and your family
  • Working with other palliative care services and your GP
  • Services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Costs & Eligibility

Our home aged care services are available to seniors over the age of 65, (or over 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders).

The cost of your services will be determined by your eligibility for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or a Home Care Package (HCP). Depending on your circumstances you may not need to pay anything at all.

If you’re not eligible for CHSP or a home care package, you can still access services through privately funded services, where you meet the full cost of care yourself.

Our approach to home care

Ozcare’s home care services are designed to help you keep living in your home for longer. With a personalised care plan created together with you and your family, we help you to become more independent with the aim of reducing your need for ongoing services, or the need to access higher care services such as complex nursing.

With 20 years’ experience in aged care, our team of carers, nurses, occupational therapists and other allied health professionals offer a complete suite of services in the comfort of your own home.
