Mercy Palliative Care

Catchment overview

Mercy Palliative Care is a community-based palliative care service offering support in the North and West Metropolitan Region of Melbourne. We cover seven municipalities including: Brimbank, Maribyrnong, Melbourne, Melton, Moonee Valley, Hobsons Bay and Wyndham.

Palliative care involves a range of services that support people and their families with advanced disease, when cure is no longer possible.

Our aim, through this care and service provision, is for each person to experience the best quality of life possible for them — physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

Our specialist palliative team includes doctors, nurses, social workers and grief and bereavement counsellors. Each member of the team provides treatment focused on relieving suffering in relation to distressing physical pain and symptoms. The team also provides care to relieve psychological, financial and emotional burdens, with a particular focus on family care and support.

Our team is deeply committed to providing care to people in their place of choice, and we strive to discuss and encourage patients to document these decisions on our Mercy Health Advance Care Plan, very early in the admission process.
