Inpatient Palliative Care

Palliative care aims to prevent and relieve health related suffering of adults, children and their families facing problems associated with life-threatening illness. It is based on a comprehensive and person-centred approach, addressing physical, psychological, social and spiritual suffering. (World Health Organisation)

In line with this worldwide aim, Fraser Coast Hospice’s vision is to provide every adult with access to dignified palliative care. Our mission is to support adults in our care and their families through end-of-life care and bereavement.

We achieve this vision and mission through our values of respect, compassion and inclusiveness.

People with a terminal illness can be admitted for end-of-life care, symptom control and respite care. Generally, our clients are within the last days and weeks of their life, therefore we are not a long term stay facility.

Fraser Coast Hospice has a welcoming, home like environment with peaceful surroundings.





All clients require a doctor to admit them to the Hospice with ongoing care provided 24 hours a day by a registered nurse and personal care assistant.




Families are welcome to stay overnight in our facility and there are no set visiting hours with families and visitors able to come and go as they please.

A comfortable family room is available providing tea & coffee.

The Reflection Room is a space where families, visitors, staff and volunteers can spend quiet time. Pastoral care volunteers can also visit clients and families to provide support as required.


Precious 4 legged friends are also welcome to visit.

Voluntary Assisted Dying

Fraser Coast Hospice does not provide voluntary assisted dying services. If you wish to access voluntary assisted dying, we will help you to do this. For some parts of the process you may need to be transferred to and from another place, so you can access voluntary assisted dying. We will facilitate this transfer if it is needed and ensure it does not impact your care or condition.

Fraser Coast Hospice will continue providing other medical care and treatment to people who are accessing voluntary assisted dying.

Bereavement Follow Up





We aim to provide comfort and support for families and significant others who have experienced the loss of someone close to them.


Our pastoral care volunteers lead bereavement follow up by way of phone call on a regular basis for the first twelve months.








Families are also invited to a Remembrance Service where they can take some quiet time to remember and reflect on their loved one.
