Your support of the Harcourts Beach Series ensures that people on the North Shore who are living with a terminal illness have the best Hospice care possible.Â The team at Hospice North Shore work to make sure everyone in their care has the best quality of life for the time they have left and to live as pain and symptom free as possible.Â To know that they and their families are not travelling this journey alone and that caring Hospice staff and volunteers are on hand 24/7.
Most people in Hospice care want to remain at home and for many, they want to die at home when the time comes, so the team from Hospice works with them and their family to help make this a reality where possible.
Patients and their families are partners in the decisions about their care – what is important to them is important to those working in Hospice. Â Â It is as much about compassion, emotional support as it is about medical support.Â Hospice looks after the whole person(s).
There is also an Inpatient unit available for short-term care.Â When symptom management is required, or families are exhausted from caring for their loved one they are brought into the homely unit where they are cared for by wonderful Hospice staff.
