Palliative Care and Support

TGCA provides in-home support when it is needed most.

Your loved one’s last few weeks or months are a sensitive time. This time can be a graceful and nurturing one for a family. Our Palliative care team has the experience and wisdom to help your loved one and family through this phase with dignity and compassion.

Palliative-care may require some nursing as well as personal care. We work alongside the hospice nurses and other support networks to cohesively deliver compassionate care.

What you can expect

Our carers provide support to family and friends during the course of the illness and in their period of grief and loss.

We understand that illness affects the whole person – physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually and aim to relieve pain and other signs of distress.

Treating you with respect and safe guarding freedom and choice is our mission.

Who is your carer? Expect your Carer to have a mature personality with life experience that delivers trusted low-key home care at a stressful time for family and friends.

Seniors care

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to make a difference.

A friendly, skilled and consistent Support worker in the comfort of your own space

Where to from here?

Contact us for a preliminary chat and register your care request. Your service delivery manager will coordinate with you a time to meet and complete a palliative-care plan.

A single carer or a small team of carers are carefully selected to provide support. You can expect carers to have end-of-life care training and experience. Your carer is assigned and care delivery commences with a focus on maintaining dignity and comfort. You determine the hours you require either as a planned roster or at short notice. Services can stop / re-start at any point in time as required by you. Engage a Carer to support as much or as little as you require.

No referral is necessary but often referrals for this service are made by Hospice nurses or community based Social Workers.

Client Reviews

MIKE

I wanted to drop a special thank you to you and your team for helping us through dads last days. You were so helpful from the get go! Aunty Vicky and Aunty Val were both amazing and a great support to us as well as dad.

Vicky was excellent with dad, especially in the early days when he was still semi mobile. She is easy going and just went with whatever dad wanted to do.

Val was also amazing, more so in the latter days dad went downhill. Her medical knowledge, ability to talk to the doctor and nurses was a real help.

I would recommend them both and also the Good Companion service to anyone, and have done! Even Hospice have asked for your details as they found both of the girls great to work with. Thank you once again for being there in our time of need."

"Thank you so much for your lovely message.

It is a very sad time for us now. Losing such a beloved family member is a completely integral part of life and nature ....but so hard to bear all the same.

Kirsty has been an incredible support for Dad. Such a wise, insightful and empathetic lady. She has been such an important part of Dad’s quality of life in the past few months - keeping up his spirits and showing him how he can participate, create, communicate and reflect in himself. I could see it has helped him immeasurably to navigate his way around the cruel handicaps that have been imposed on him by Alzheimer’s dementia. I can’t believe how lucky we were to find her and we have you to thank for that too, Jenny. You can be proud of the work you do helping people out."
