Proposed Service


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.

End of life and respite care will be provided onsite in a 12-bed peaceful home-like facility, surrounded by gardens.

Community outreach care will support and enable patients to be cared for at home if this is their wish.

Holistic support services including bereavement support will be provided for patients, families, and carers.

Advanced care planning education and training will be available to the wider community.

It is envisaged that there will be no out-of-pocket cost for core services and that care will be available to people of all ages 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.
