Palliative Care in Disabilities

Caring for the disabled
with life-limiting Illness

People with a disability that also have a severe or life restricting sickness frequently find it challenging to access palliative care when they require it.

In Ipswich, we understand we have many people living with a disability who would benefit from having an evaluation and consultation about their palliative care needs as their illness advances.

Ipswich Nurses has coupled up with Ipswich Hospice Care and created a new service that will advance entrance to quality palliative care for people existing with disability in our area.
