We provide palliative care in a friendly, progressive environment designed to make our residents feel right at home.
Palliative care is designed to help people live their life as fully and as comfortably as possible when coping with a life-limiting illness. With the help of visiting specialists, we aim to identify and treat symptoms which may be physical, emotional or social.
Our extra service communities at Merrimac and Ashmore cater for all aged care needs. This includes residential care, respite care, dementia care and palliative care. This range of expertise combined with our 24 hour on-site nursing care enables HillView to care for your loved one, even as their health declines.
Delivering excellence in palliative care
As palliative care is based on individual needs, the services offered will be different for each resident. In all cases, we see Palliative care as a family-centred model of care which delivers practical, clinical and social support.
HillView is privately owned by a medical specialist who understands first hand how to deliver excellence in care and respond to changing needs. This flexibility allows HillView to run a highly effective staffing mix. This delivers excellent service to our residents, their families and medical teams.
We run a state of the art emergency call system and a unique GP support system, ensuring continuity of care. HillView also has a quality team of visiting GPs and allied health professionals that can be accessed by our residents as needed.
The HillView team comprises carefully selected, highly qualified and regularly trained staff. Everyone in our team is loyal and genuinely passionate about caring for others. They form strong bonds with residents and take a respectful and personalised approach, focusing on what’s best for each individual.
Of utmost importance is the dignity and independence of our residents. They have choices about how they are cared for and supported, just like they would have had in their own home. Medication is given in the privacy of their room and our team enable residents to remain as independent as possible.
