In-Home Palliative Care in Melbourne - We Are Specialists & We Provide Private At Home Services

Melbourne's Trusted Palliative Care Providers

Palliative care at a hospice or hospital can make clients feel more like patients than people. That’s why we take a different approach, bringing the quality care you would expect from a hospital to your own home.

We can assist family carers on occasion or provide full 24/7 palliative care support, allowing you to spend quality time with their loved ones without worry.

Loved ones may be unable to take on the tasks needed to provide palliative care at home, but that shouldn’t mean that a person has to spend the rest of their life in a hospital or hospice. That’s why at Endeavour In Home Care, we offer all the support needed to ensure that our clients’ final days are spent in their own home.

We offer in-home palliative care for people living with a life-limiting illness, allowing you to live comfortably in a familiar environment and enjoy the best quality of life possible. Although we specialise in end of life care services for older Australians, we provide assistance to people of all ages in Melbourne.

Supporting You Through Tough Times

We understand this is a difficult time for you and your loved ones, which is why we are here to offer our medical and emotional support. From the time you get in touch with us to the very final moments, we will be by your side to offer any and all support services you need.

Each client comes from a different background and requires differing levels of support for palliative care. That’s why our care managers do their best to find out what matters to you most so that we can assign you a carer that meets your physical, psychological, social, spiritual and cultural needs.

We’ve learnt over our many years in the business that a one-size-fits-all approach to palliative care simply doesn’t work, which is why we let you take the reins and decide what will make your remaining time feel the most meaningful. Our palliative care team is here to help in whichever ways you need, allowing clients and their families to take full control.

We are committed to not only minimising pain and discomfort, but also helping you to live the life you want to live. We’ve been told time and time again that it is the flexibility and client focus that sets us apart from other palliative care services, which is why we allow you to tailor your services to your individual needs. Respect and dignity are the two aspects at the forefront of our approach and inform everything we do at Endeavor In Home Care.

Following Your Advance Care Directive to a T

Those who are in the process of dying should consider creating an advanced care directive which documents your wishes for the remainder of your life should you be unable to articulate them yourself. This can include a Values Directive, which includes all the things you wish to be considered in your medical treatment, and an Instructional Directive, which outlines your consent and refusal of specific medical treatments.

Your Values Directive can include things like what matters most to you, who you wish to have a say in your care (partners, family members, friends, etc.), any preferences you have, and any outcomes you would like to avoid.

We ensure that your in-home palliative care is reflective of your wishes and manage your services accordingly.

How Much Does In-Home Palliative Care Cost?

We know that a lot of Melbourne families feel the strain when it comes to affording palliative care at home. We also know how important it is to surround yourself with the people you love and retain your autonomy during the dying process, something that only in-home care can provide. That’s why we aim to make our palliative care services as affordable as we can and can help you explore possible funding options.

You may be able to receive financial support from government programs such as Home Care Packages, the NDIS, and the Commonwealth Health Support Program (CHSP). We are a registered NDIS and Home Care provider, allowing us to give you assistance.

Our case managers will be able to provide more information and resources about the options available to you. Reach out to us today to find out more.
