Eastern Palliative Care Gala Dinner

By March 11, 2010March 14th, 2010No Comments

Eastern Palliative Care is a not-for-profit home based palliative care service, which aims to improve the quality of life for individuals, caregivers and families experiencing terminal illness.

The organisation serves residents within the Boroondara, Knox, Manningham, Maroondah, Monash, Whitehorse and Yarra Ranges council areas. While the organisation receives some State Government funding, it relies on fundraising and donations to maintain the services it provides to the community.

This evening I attended the Eastern Palliative Care Gala Dinner. The dinner assists in raising funds for Eastern Palliative Care and the programs it provides, including telephone support, specialist nursing care, education, as well as counselling and support groups.

The dinner was extremely well attended and it is great to see such strong support for community-based organisations. For further information on Eastern Palliative Care please visit
