Enabling people to live life to its fullest whilst living with life limiting conditions or illness.

The principles of compassionate communities are applicable to both end of life care and to healthcare in general. Networks of support of family, friends, neighbours and community members are the foundation of what matters most to those undergoing experiences of death, dying, loss and care giving.

 

Compassionate communities are communities that provide assistance for those in need of end of life care, separate from any official heath service provision that may already be available within the community. Our support groups and services focus on enabling people to live life to its fullest whilst living with life limiting conditions or illness.
