Registered nurse Jennifer Hewett tells us about how she cared for a family member in her Gold Coast home with the support of Anglicare Southern Queensland’s palliative care team members: “They were there with us, hand in hand, explaining why things were happening and how we could better manage his symptoms”

National Palliative Care Week: catching up with Clinical Care Coordinator, Teryna

Palliative care is important for helping someone leave this life in the best way possible. For patients, it’s about a pain-free and peaceful departure. Knowing that their loved one is at peace in their final stages of life can also help relieve the anxiety families may feel about their imminent loss. Thank you to all palliative care staff for the important work that you do!
