No two people are the same, which is why HillView cares for residents with life threatening illness based on their individual needs. We ensure our residents have choices about how they are cared for and supported, just like they would have if they were living in their own home. We also do everything possible to protect the dignity and independence of our residents. Medication is given in the privacy of their own room and our team support them to remain as active and involved in our community as they choose.
Our Gold Coast palliative care team work hard to provide the best quality of life possible for both our resident and their loved ones, as they go through this difficult time. Our goal is to make our residents feel as comfortable and stress free as possible. We coordinate with visiting general practitioners and other medical specialists, as needed, to help prevent or relieve the suffering of our residents. Important in this process is the early identification and then treatment of physical, emotional or social symptoms.
Another important part of palliative care is to provide peace of mind to the family, friends and carers of our residents. We not only provide support to these loved ones but we also listen to and respect their wishes. The Hillview team work with residents and their families to answer any questions they may have as they go through this journey.Download Brochure
Arranging entry into residential aged care can be a little overwhelming. We can assist with the application process and answer any of your questions as you navigate through the aged care system.
Your loved one will need to be assessed. The Government’s My Aged Care Service will refer you to the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). The team will make their assessment and then put approvals in place for your loved one to enter residential aged care.
