ABORIGINAL PALLIATIVE CARE
Palliative Care – What’s it all about? Working with the Nunga Community, Palliative Care is about helping a person (and his/her family) with an illness that is not curable.
Nungas nearing the end of their lives, because of illnesses that cannot be cured, need special attention.
Advice and support is available to ensure all aspects of the Aboriginal person’s life are catered for in an Aboriginal community or in the city. The aim is to ensure the person is as comfortable and active for as long as possible.
Loss and grief (Sorry Business) touches everyone. Ongoing support for the grieving family is available.
A palliative care team including Aboriginal Health Workers will work hand in hand with the family and extended family.
