Central Grampians Palliative Care provides expert advice and support to consumers suffering from a life limiting illness.
Central Grampians Palliative Care is a free community based palliative care service offering health care and emotional support to people and their carers living with a life-limiting illness. Our focus is to offer a consumer driven service that will enhance a person’s dignity and independence.
Geographically, our service overrides three rural shire boundaries, these being the Rural City of Ararat, Northern Grampians Shire, and the Pyrenees Shire.
Our service is open Monday to Friday between the hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
After-hours specialist palliative care phone support is available to our patients and carers Monday to Friday between 4.30 pm and 7.15 am the next day, and 24 hours on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
We offer emotional support for grief and loss issues, and referral for therapeutic counseling can be arranged if need be.
We can organise and pay for equipment hire to enable easier home nursing care.
Consumers can self refer or referrals may be made by anyone involved with the consumer in association with their doctor and with the consumer’s consent.
