What is a Hospice?


A hospice is a special kind of community-based health service that cares for and supports people in their last weeks and months of a terminal illness, so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Care is personalised and attends to a person’s physical, emotional, cultural, and spiritual needs, with a particular focus on dignity, quality of life and the relief of pain and suffering.

Family, friends, and loved ones are also supported and are encouraged to be actively involved in the care of the person. Fitzroy Community Hospice provides hospice care in a purpose built, home-like facility, allowing Central Queenslanders additional choice in determining where they want to spend their final stages of life.
