Prestige Inhome Care management and staff have welcomed recent news that the State Government is putting $7.2 million towards a new home-based model of palliative care.
The model partners hospitals, aged care, community palliative care and other health networks, with a potential outcome being that more terminally-ill Victorians will be able to die in their own homes.

Prestige Inhome Care Chief Executive Nick McDonald said today: “Up to 80% of terminally ill Victorians are preferring to die in their own homes, yet only 14% are able to. The new framework is an important step towards enabling more Victorians’ their final wishes during what is a hugely important and emotional time for often dozens in the wider families – and up to hundreds in the surrounding communities.”
“Palliative inhome care has been a focus of expertise of ours for several years and we look forward to better state backing for those wishing to stay in their homes”.
