admin Interviews

palliativecare

Palliative Care is the coordinated medical, nursing and allied health care for people who have a progressive life limiting illness.

It aims to achieve the best quality of life for clients and their caregivers whilst acknowledging the uniqueness of each individual.

Have you cared for a loved one at the end of life, survived a life-threatening illness or speak a
language other than English?

The SWS LHD Palliative Care Volunteer Service is looking for people interested in being palliative care volunteers to support patients in hospital and the community.

Palliative care volunteers receive training to help them provide practical and emotional support to patients, carers and families through end of life care.

People who speak a language other than English – in particular Vietnamese, Arabic and Spanish – are encouraged to volunteer.

A free information session will be held on Friday 13th March with training to commence on Tuesday, 24th March at Liverpool Hospital.

For more information or to RSVP contact Arlene Roache on 9616 8955 or Arlene.roache@sswahs.nsw.gov.au
