Pastoral Care

Sensitivity, Compassion and Understanding


Everybody deserves access to palliative care that respects their dignity and their wishes. Scalabrini palliative care supports people with a terminal illness to live as comfortably as possible in the final chapter of their lives.

Palliative care must always be tailored to the individual – treating their unique spiritual, social, emotional and physical needs. In conjunction with respite care and medical treatment, we take a family-centric and holistic approach to relieving discomfort during end of life care.

We know this can be a time of great distress, difficult choices and emotional pain – our team is standing by to guide you through the process and provide all the information and support you require to make the right, informed choices for you and your family.

Scalabrini’s Unique Approach to Palliative Care


We provide support, alleviate pain and improve the person’s quality of life by addressing any painful or distressing symptoms, always showing respect and kindness.

Our Advance Care Planning gives families, doctors and our care teams a clear understanding of the person’s values, health issues and what they would like from their future care.

Family and friends won’t be forgotten. We are by your side and help you make plans to reflect your preferences.

And our remarkable sisters are on call 24 hours a day, providing prayer, companionship and grief support. They affirm the dignity of human life and provide a foundation of spiritual and emotional comfort to people of all religions or faiths.
