If you do not have an answer for these questions then come along to this FREE interactive workshop designed to help you plan ahead and provide a plan that lets your family and health care providers know what you want as you age.
Over 80% per cent of Australians think it is important to put our end-of-life care treatment preferences into writing, but less than 5% of us have completed an advance care plan.
Southcare will host Palliative Care WA who provide community workshops to help people to plan ahead and let their families and health care providers know what they would want if they could no longer speak for themselves.
The Advance Care Planning workshop is free and open to all community members, regardless of age or health conditions.
A light afternoon tea will be provided. Participants will also receive hard-copy information resources and handouts.
Places are limited and registrations are essential. Please feel welcome to bring your carers and family who support you, but please add their details to your registration.
For more information or for help to register please call Southcare on 9450 6233 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is covered?
Palliative Care WA is the state’s peak body for palliative care. They do not deliver palliative care services. Their role is to raise awareness of palliative care and improve access for all Western Australians.
Palliative care aims to manage the physical symptoms and emotional needs experienced by people with a life-limiting or terminal condition, so they can enjoy the best possible quality of life.
Care is generally delivered by a multidisciplinary team of health professionals. The care they provide varies according to each patient’s needs and preferences. Palliative care also provides practical and emotional support to family and carers.
Relax at Southcare Central and join us for a one-hour seminar on what services are available to get the care you need to age at home and avoid having to move to a retirement village or residential aged care.
Southcare is pleased to offer a free seminar to provide you with information about the different options that are available to assist you to stay at home and receive care. We will discuss how to access Government subsidised home care services and explain the how these services can help you remain independent and supported as you age.
