End of Life Pathway

Dignity and comfort at the end of life

At KinCare, we understand there’s no place like home. That’s why through our End of Life Pathway, we do whatever we can to maintain your dignity and comfort at home during this difficult time. Aged care not only includes every day, but also your last days.

In addition to our personal care and nursing services, our End of Life Pathway includes support for pain management and palliative care. Our caring and dedicated staff will work with you and your family every step of the way with any support you need, including daily help with showering and grooming, medication management, pain relief and even respite for your loved ones.

Your choices as you approach the end of your life

We pave the way so that you can stay in your home at every stage of life and live the life you choose in the comfort of your own home. Our wide array of services in our End of Life pathway are designed to help you stay at home with care and support that reflects your choices.

At all stages of your care, our expert team will work with you, your family and health practitioners to have the conversations you need to have about what you want your final days to look like.
