As life’s journey draws to a close, you can rest assured that your loved one is comfortable and receiving the care they deserve. At BlueCare, our qualified staff offer the care, treatment and compassion that make the final stages of life more comfortable and less distressing – for your loved one, you and your family.

We focus on open communication, enabling personal choice and dignity. Symptom relief, support and comfort are an important part of our palliative care service, guided by a person’s advance health directive or statement of choices. We strive to make sure people and their families feel supported and heard during this difficult time.

Bereavement support is also available for families, friends and loved ones to help them understand the care required and come to terms with their loss and grief. Find out more about BlueCare’s free Grief and Loss programs.

Palliative care service expansion

BlueCare is embarking on an exciting transformation to expand our palliative care services around Queensland. We have an incredible opportunity for Clinical and Registered Nurses to join a team renowned for providing world-class palliative care to clients and families across Wide Bay, Cairns and Hinterland, North West, Townsville, Mackay, Central West, Central Queensland, Darling Downs, and the South West.

We believe every Queenslander deserves the peace of mind to receive quality palliative care in the comfort of their own home. Our palliative care program provides holistic care across metropolitan and regional Queensland. In your greatest time of need, BlueCare is here for you.

Palliative Care in the home

In some parts of Queensland, BlueCare can offer palliative care in your home. We promote peace and dignity throughout the final stages of life and can support you and your loved ones to create a calm environment. We also offer home nursing and equipment, pain and symptom management, personal hygiene and grooming, respite for carers, and bereavement support. We also can connect you with chaplains and a social worker.

For early palliative care, we can visit weekly to monitor a person’s health and offer emotional support, with more regular visits as care needs increase. We can also offer guidance and support to family and friends on the next steps after your loved one has passed.

Talk to your hospital team or contact BlueCare directly on 1300 970 495 to find out more about palliative care options in the home.

Palliative Care in Residential Aged Care

A calm and peaceful atmosphere is the hallmark of care for people who choose to stay in the familiar and comforting surrounds of their BlueCare aged care home rather than hospital or a hospice as they near the end of life.

Some of our aged care homes offer soft lighting, a CD player for favourite music, and flowers. Family members are encouraged to stay close and we can provide meals. We can also facilitate phone calls with people who cannot visit in person. We have close ties to clergy from all denominations who can visit as required.

Family members often find solace being near the people who have cared for and known their loved one, sometimes for years, in our aged care homes. We can also offer guidance and support on the next steps after your loved one has passed.
