The Laurel Palliative Care Foundation Inc. raises money to support end-of-life services that are not traditionally funded by the South Australian Government. Support means more than just medical help; people with a life-limiting illness also need emotional, spiritual and practical support on a daily basis.
We support families, friends, adults, children, parents…
Community – we build connections
Fundraising – we raise funds
Support – we provide grants
Events – we even climb mountains and ride bikes!
We change lives
We are a source of financial support to Southern Adelaide Palliative Services (SAPS). With our help SAPS is able to provide extra services to help people affected by terminal illness. We support SAPS to provide services that focus on relaxation and stress management through our complementary therapies provided by our Wellbeing Service.
People who live with a terminal illness are experts by experience – they know what they need. Together we use this knowledge to make a positive difference. This could be anything from increasing awareness about palliative care or engaging our community to back the important work of SAPS to provide funds for the purchase of much-needed items and equipment.
We believe working with others is the key to creating community consciousness and connections. We can all help by raising money through bike treks, marathons, coffee mornings and sponsored events. You can offer your time at Laurel Hospice or in the home, at events or with our fundraising groups. We believe the end of life is as worthwhile and valued as its beginning and how it is lived throughout. We believe that the quality of life for people where a cure is no longer possible should be positive and meaningful, and this belief is reflected in all that we do.
We believe that when we work with you, we do make the difference!
