Community Speaker Program
Eastern Palliative Care (EPC) Ambassadors help bring awareness of home-based community palliative care through our Community Speaker Program.
EPC Ambassadors are trained volunteer speakers who are experts in palliative care and all that is involved with being taken care of at home.
Our Ambassadors provide free presentations to community groups, workplaces, friend groups and organisations that go anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour. Our friendly ambassadors can tailor their presentation to your needs, and are happy to answer questions at the end. All attendees will receive a free EPC information pack.
EPC is privileged to care for and accompany the dying person and their caregivers in the final phase of life, upholding their dignity and respecting their spiritual, physical, emotional, cultural and social needs. Our care continues in the bereavement services that we offer caregivers and families.
Through our team of 140 staff and over 300 specially trained volunteers, we care for people who are dying from the ages of pre-birth through to the very elderly. We care for people for up to 1 year or sometimes longer depending on their diagnosis.
Our role is to support clients in their quality of life ensuring their symptoms are managed well and that they and their family are supported at this difficult and emotional time.
All EPC services are free.
