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.

Presenter

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.

We will also discuss what in-home aged care services are available and how you can access these services privately.

This is the perfect seminar for anyone who is over 55+ who is looking to stay in their own home.
