We launch appeal for hospice

FOLLOWING their BEATS business awards win in August, Tweed Palliative Support service (TPS) lobbied MPs Geoff Provest and Thomas George, unsuccessfully, for $500,000 for nursing wages for the Dulguigan Hospice.

The Tweed Daily News is helping the non-profit group to secure the funding through federal, state, business or individual donations by launching the Tweed Daily News Hospice Appeal campaign.

Opened in February, the hospice in Dulguigan can provide end-of-life care for 300 people a year.

While free to patients, the non-profit's costs are $500 a night for care. It urgently needs funding for registered nurses to administer pain medication and catheter changes.

TPS also provides 200 in-home volunteers, 20 hospital beds, 40 wheelchairs and free transfers for radiotherapy patients. The reach for the organisation is approximately 1200 people a year.
