Bereavement Support

Bereavement Support 
Our facility will offer BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT, providing respite for carers, as well as on ongoing education, training and research. 

Take a look at each of the following sections to get a better sense of our ultimate goals, along with our bereavement support capabilities.
WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE AND FEEL LIKE?

It will be a home-like environment in a tranquil setting, set on a ground floor within easy access of established gardens.

It will feel different to each person who uses it, as care will be tailored to each individual’s physical, emotional, cultural and spiritual needs. Our team will provide the support necessary to cope through these trying times.
WHY IS ALL OF THIS IMPORTANT?

People in our community desire and deserve to have the choice of where they die. People in our community deserve to have access to a dedicated facility with the sole purpose of providing care at end of life.

People in our community deserve to have a dedicated facility that can help the patient and the people who love and support them at a truly challenging time of their lives.

People in our community deserve to have the same options as those in the south of Tasmania do, with the funding and running of the Whittle Ward.
WHO WOULD RUN IT?

The Hospice would serve the whole community – run by the state, but with strong community participation to assist in fundraising and celebrating life.

Care would be delivered by both GP and specialist clinicians, and clinical oversight and governance would operate under the auspices of the Launceston General Hospital. This way, patients would receive a comprehensive and innovative form of care.
WHAT ROLE WOULD THE COMMUNITY PLAY?

Fundraising and spreading the word regarding the need for a dedicated hospice in Northern Tasmania. We are always looking for volunteers to help us. Whatever your skill set, we invite you to reach out to our team today.
