Increase independence and quality of life for individuals with life-limiting illness

Arcadia Pittwater provides an individualised palliative care program that’s delivered by its caring and professional multidisciplinary team. The program aims to increase independence and quality of life for individuals with a life-limiting illness.

Our key focus is providing palliative care programs where patients and their loved ones achieve dignity and comfort in an environment more akin to a comfortable boutique hotel than a clinical care setting.

We work closely with patients, families and loved ones to tailor a care program that meets an individual’s physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and cultural needs. Family and carers are included, and offered practical and emotional support as part of this care plan.

Our care team includes medical specialists and nurses, physiotherapists, dietitians, occupational therapists, social workers and psychologists, specifically trained to care for people with complex and life-limiting health issues.

Comfortable, supported and compassionate end-of-life care

Arcadia Pittwater also offers compassionate person-centred end-of-life care.

Our large palliative care rooms are designed to accommodate a loved one who may wish to stay with the patient. This allows for maximum contact during imminent death and enables loved ones to be closely involved with their loved one’s care, should they wish to do so. It also enables our caring palliative care team to provide the very best individualised care to each of our patients, and their family and loved ones.

A referral from a doctor or healthcare provider is needed to access this service. Potential patients and families are encouraged to contact a member of our care team at Arcadia Pittwater directly to discuss their individualised needs before obtaining a referral.
