EPC is Victoria’s largest home based palliative care service, operating across seven local government areas in Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne. We assist those living at home with a terminal illness and their carers, to have the best possible quality of life in their last months and days. We provide doctors, nurses, family support and bereavement workers, music, massage, occupational therapists and an extensive range of volunteer services. This year EPC will help around 2,000 families.
EPC is a not-for-profit organisation and provides a free service for clients and their carers. Although we are government funded, we rely on fundraising, donations and bequests to support the delivery of our services and programs.
What is the Equipment Hire Financial Hardship Appeal?
Many EPC clients require specific equipment to be brought into their homes to avoid having to go to a hospital or hospice. Often the need for this equipment is sudden, urgent and vital. EPC assists families to secure these items and organise their hire or purchase. Some families are not in a financial position to cover this cost. The ability for them to draw on EPC’s hardship fund means their loved one’s final wish to die at home can be met.
EPC no longer receives government funding to subsidise the cost of hiring the equipment required for clients in financial hardship. 100% of all income from EPC’s 2022 Online Auction will go to an internal fund to be used for this purpose for eligible clients.
