Ongoing Home Hospice Service for the Community
The Memorandum of Understanding for the EP Home Hospice Service has been extended by the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation (EPCF) and Matthew Flinders Home (MFH).
The EP Home Hospice Service provides out of hours and weekend support for terminally ill patients who wish to remain in their own homes for their last few weeks. This provides 24 hour care in coordination with the Port Lincoln Health Services Palliative Care Team.
Since 2017 when this service became permanently available 20 plus families have been assisted.
The Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation Board manages the funds and donations received, while Matthew Flinders Home provide the team of associated professionals and volunteers that provide the service.
Ongoing fundraising and support is needed for this service to continue. The Book Bazaar Charity Bookshop in Port Lincoln has just celebrated its 6th year with its profits both supporting the service and other needs on the Eyre Peninsula. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to assist this service to continue please contact the Foundation. 0400 685 520 firstname.lastname@example.org
