Hunter Valley Palliative Care Equipment & Support

Providing support to individuals, their families and carers in the Maitland, Dungog, Singleton, Cessnock and surrounding areas, with life limiting illnesses.

How can we help you?

Friends of Palliative Care collaborates with local Palliative Care services in the lower Hunter area through the provision of financial assistance to patients, loaning of equipment and other requests for support.

Palliative Care Equipment

We loan out equipment such as electric beds, bedside tables, hoists, and life alarms to help palliative patients receive care within their own home.

What We Do at FOPC

We provide support to palliative patients and their families a number of different ways including equipment, care packages, pharmacy accounts and more.

Bucket List Experience

A program to financially support local palliative care patients to undertake an activity or experience that they wish to complete towards the end of their life.

FOPC Fundraisers & Events

We host annual events and fundraisers to raise money so that we can continue to help local people with life-limiting or terminal illnesses.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care helps people live as fully and as comfortably as possible with a life-limiting or terminal illness. Palliative care aims to ease the suffering of patients and their families.

Palliative means care that is person and family centred. It is for a person with an active, progressive, advanced disease, and for whom the primary goal is to optimise quality of life (Palliative Care Australia, 2022).
