Little Haven Palliative Care is a not for profit public benevolent institution and registered charity providing compassionate and professional palliative care to people that are dying and their families and friends in the Gympie and surrounding area. A free at home hospice service, Little Haven supports about 180 clients and their families annually. In addition we provide bereavement support to community members dealing with grief and loss, as well as education to health professionals and the community on palliative care, death and dying and loss and grief.
Our team includes Nurses, Volunteers and Complimentary therapists working in cooperation with the treating medical practitioners, to offer comprehensive support for the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the individual.
By taking quality hospice care into the home our goal is to offer an opportunity for people with a terminal illness – and their loved ones – to have the highest quality of remaining life.
Little Haven receives limited Government funding and relies on the generosity of the local community and our hard working volunteers to fund in excess of $300000 annual shortfall in funding.
Our philosophy is based on the principles of dignity, love and compassionate care.
