Palliative care support & advice

Many people have little knowledge of what to expect when they or a loved one is living with an advanced life-limiting illness, how their care will be coordinated, or how much it will cost. This can be a daunting time. The health professionals at PalAssist are here to assist you with:

  • accurate and up-to-date information about palliative care
  • emotional support
  • contact details for local services that provide either home care or in-patient palliative care
  • compassionate guidance to help you consider your priorities at the end of life
  • information about documents such as Advanced Health Directives, Enduring Power of Attorney

The PalAssist team are able to refer clients requiring additional support to the PalAssist Nurse Counselling Service.

  • The PalAssist Nurse Counselling Service provides support to those experiencing distress relating to their own, or their loved one’s illness.
  • Usually up to two telephone counselling sessions are offered with a follow up check-in call within two to three weeks.
  • Clients generally receive specific tip sheets relating to their concerns that they can refer to at home afterwards.
  • The PalAssist Nurse Counselling Service will also work with clients to identify options for ongoing support as required.
