hospice@HOME Palliative Care Program continues to provide services

The District Nurses have been delivering the Commonwealth funded hospice@HOME program for the last 4 years.

This program has provided in home end of life care and support to Tasmanians enabling them to achieve their wish of dying at home, in a familiar place with friends and family by their side.

Funding for the program will cease in June 2017.

No further referrals will be accepted after March 31 2017.

However The District Nurses want to reassure all current clients of the program that they will not have their services ceased.

Chief Executive of The District Nurses, Kim Macgowan said today that the recent announcement of the closure of Palliative Care Tasmania had caused confusion and concern in the community, particularly amongst clients who are receiving services through hospice@HOME.

Mrs Macgowan said that all clients who are in the hospice@HOME program at the end of June will continue to be supported with in the home care, until they no longer require services.
