Caring for Loved Ones in Your Own Home
To support people caring for a loved one at home who requires palliative care, Hopewell may be able to arrange for the provision of additional respite services provided by other Nursing Services.
We also provide social, emotional and spiritual support to the person who is palliative and to those providing care. This additional support is an important aspect of care provided in the Hospice and helps ease the emotional pressures of those providing care at home.
This assistance often enables the person to remain at home, rather than requiring hospital care. It also builds a link with the Hopewell community in case it becomes necessary to become a resident in Hopewell Hospice.
To discuss this service, please contact our Family Support staff by calling the Hospice on 07 5625 1900.
