Palliative Care

Palliative care focuses on supporting patients of all ages with terminal conditions by providing them with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of their illness.

Our palliative care is designed to achieve the best possible quality in end-of-life care. It takes into account not only the medical dimension of care but also the sensitivities of family, friends and carers. Palliative care suites are notable for their levels of comfort, privacy and attention to detail.

Nhill, Rainbow, Jeparit, Kaniva  and Rupanyup Hospitals and all Residential Aged Care Units provide palliative care, allowing local people to receive this important service in close proximity to their own homes and communities.
