Country & Outback Health acknowledges the deep connection Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Members have with their land, culture, and spirituality, especially during the significant moments of life’s journey.

Our dedication lies in care that respects these connections, ensuring comfort and dignity in the final stages of life for individuals and their families.

We will support you by linking you to services that can provide support, such as:

  • Managing pain and nausea – offering respectful and effective ways to ease discomfort, ensuring wellbeing
  • Access to equipment and comfort aids
  • Culturally tailored care plans – developing care approaches in consultation with individuals and families, incorporating personal, cultural, and spiritual preferences

With a longstanding history in serving the health and community service needs of regional communities, Country & Outback Health is deeply embedded within these landscapes.
