Kate at Oran Park - Advance Care Planning Week

Navigating the world after a dementia diagnosis is often a tricky and daunting task for families, carers and people living with dementia.

SWSPHN has compiled a Dementia and Palliative Care Directory using local, state and national services to guide families, carers and people living with dementia from diagnoses to end-of-life care.

The directory is available as a webpage on our website and as a downloadable, interactive pdf.

Among the wealth of services and resources available through the directory is information about:

dementia booklet

  • Advance care planning and directives
  • National care services
  • Support groups
  • Doulas
  • Dementia specific activities
  • Transport services
  • Food services
  • Bereavement counselling services

This directory was developed as part of SWSPHN’s Peace of Mind project (POMp), funded under the Commonwealth Greater Choice for at Home Palliative Care measure.

POMp aims to improve the end-of-life journey of people living with dementia, their carers, families and health professionals, through the implementation of education, information and resources for community.

A hard copy of the directory will be available during Advance Care Planning Week, 20 to 26 March, in the Southern Highlands and Campbelltown.

The Dementia and Palliative Care Directory is available:

  • Monday to Friday at Wingecarribee Shire Council, Civic Centre Customer Service Desk, 68 Elizabeth Street Moss Vale. The Customer Service Desk display will include the new Palliative Care and Dementia Directory, the A journey into Sorry Business booklet and other information from SWSPHN about advance care planning.
  • Wednesday, 22 March at an information stall at Oran Park Library, 72 Central Ave, Oran Park, between 10am and 12pm.
  • Thursday, 23 March at an information stall at HJ Daley Library, 1 Hurley Street, Campbelltown, between 9.30am and 11.30am.
