What is Fitzroy Community Hospice?
Fitzroy Community Hospice is a not-for-profit charitable organisation committed to the establishment of Central Queensland’s first hospice.
Onsite care will be provided in a purpose-built, peaceful, home-like facility which will be surrounded by gardens.
Support services will be available for patients, families & carers, including social & emotional support, pastoral care, and cultural support.
It is envisaged that there will be no out-of-pocket cost for core services and that care will be available to adults and adolescents with an advanced life-limiting condition, not just those with cancer.
Fitzroy Community Hospice will partner with existing specialist and community-based palliative care services and seek to improve integration and coordination of patient care.
Community support will be crucial, and volunteers will play a vital role.
