End of Life (EoL) packages support patients with a progressive life limiting illness or condition.
The packages are designed for patients that are in the deteriorating or terminal phase of their illness or condition, who require assistance with daily living tasks and wish to die in their own home or to remain at home for as long as possible. The package can also support family members or carers.
Referrals can be made from the in-patient or out-patient settings and from LHD community-based teams, including (but not limited to) Specialist Palliative Care, Community Nursing, Chronic Disease and Aged Care Assessment Teams.
EoL packages are available for 6 weeks but can be repeated depending on the assessed needs of the patient.
