Our team work with many other health care providers including GPs, Medical Specialists, and our local District Nurses in Benalla and Mansfield to provide support to people with life limiting illnesses (cancer and non-cancer) and their family members and carers.

We will talk with you about an Advance Care plan (ACP) or Advanced Care Directive (ACD)which is a document that can guide your healthcare, especially when unable to make health care decisions for yourself. It helps those caring for you, healthcare providers and your family to remember and respect what you want. An ACP/ACD can be changed, updated or withdrawn at any time.

We work with Caritas Christi Hospice (St Vincent’s Health) who provide afterhours phone advice for ourconsumers, their family, and carers.
