Together we make a difference.
Palliative Care South East (PCSE) is a not-for-profit organisation offering home-based palliative care services in the Southeast of Melbourne. We assist and enable people with a life-limiting or terminal illness, for which there is no cure, to focus on living their best life during the time they have left.
Our wonderful team of specialist palliative physcians and nurses provide clinical care 24/7 in their homes and dedicated phone line support for them and their carers. They are supported by our allied health care team of occupational therapists, social workers, counsellors and a spiritual care worker as we recognise that the body, emotions and spirit are so intricately entwined. We also offer a full suite of complimentary programs that include art and music therapy and companionship volunteers to support them, their carers and families as part of our holistic approach to care.
Did you know that around 75% of Australians will need palliative care one day?
By making a donation, leaving a bequest or fundraising on our behalf in memory of a loved one (or just because you know about the great work we do), you will make sure we are here to support you and your family when you need us. You are also helping us to deliver the highest level of care within our diverse and growing catchment area and improving the lives of those on borrowed time.
Your thoughtful contribution, no matter how big or small, will directly support projects that improve the wellbeing of people with specialist palliative care needs. By supporting PCSE you are helping us to deliver long-term change to our community so we can live and die with dignity in our place of choice.
"Thanks to everyone who came to assist my husband during his very short cancer battle. And not only am I grateful for everything you did for him, your wonderful support and guidance and reassurance that you gave me to help me support him during his illness will never be forgotten. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful support"
Naomi Gulic, 2022
"Words are not enough to say thank you for the care and compassion you all showed to David and myself. If I was to write 100 pages, it still wouldn't be enough."
