Palliative Care Week 21 – 28 May

South Gippsland Palliative Care (SGH and Gippsland Southern Health Service) provide palliative care services to the community free of charge incorporating ‘physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and social care while being mindful of the cultural, social and financial influences on each individual person’. Palliative Care Australia encourages all Australians to use National Palliative Care Week as a discussion starter – get together with those closest to you and celebrate life and talk about your end-of-life care wishes. They have created the ‘Dying to Talk Discussion Starter’ to help with these conversations and are asking people to work through it to begin to think, talk and document what is important to them, including the care they want at the end of their lives.
