Tireless efforts extend profound sense of comfort and dignity

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Mount Gambier In Home Hospice Care (IHHC), and embody the spirit of selflessness and compassion that defines our community.

IHHC manager Sandi Elliott said through their unwavering dedication and tireless efforts, IHHC volunteers extend a profound sense of comfort and dignity to individuals and families during their most challenging moments.

“By offering their time, skills, and emotional support, our volunteers play a critical role in bridging the gap between medical care and emotional well-being,” said Ms Elliott.

“They are able to bring a personal touch, making people feel valued and supported by offering a listening ear, a comforting presence, and practical assistance.”

This invaluable contribution helps to lighten the load for families and carers, allowing them to focus on spending quality time with loved ones who are experiencing their end-of-life journey.

“We are immensely grateful to our volunteers for their selfless contributions, which serve as a beacon of hope and solace for those in need.

“They deserve all the appreciation and recognition for the profound impact they make in our community everyday.”

Mount Gambier In Home Hospice Care Inc is a free community service dedicated to enhancing the quality of life and well-being for individuals, families and carers dealing with a life-limiting or terminal illness.

“Our mission is to provide compassionate support and care that respects a person’s dignity and needs during their end-of-life journey, offering both emotional and practical support during all stages of a person’s palliative care treatment.”
