Live the lifeyou please
The campaign aims to improve awareness about palliative care, advocate for increased access to essential palliative care and related health care services for all Australians, and help to start important conversations about living the life you please until the very end.
Imagine if we treated end of life the way we treated start of life.
If we celebrated with farewell showers, carefully crafted finishing up plans and coming together as a community. If it was about comfort, choice, independence, family, joy, love wellbeing.
In Australia, expecting mothers are well supported throughout their entire pregnancy. They have access to the word’s best care during the birthing process and their entire young family has access to ongoing support for years after the baby is born.
What if our health system was better set up to support all of us as we approached the end of our lives? If it gave us everything we needed during our last days to make that experience as “good” as possible, and supported our families after we pass away?
It takes collective effort to change the way Australians think about palliative care.
Join the campaign
Over one million Australians use aged care services and more than 80,000 require palliative care every year, but many of us don’t understand the last chapter of life.
The Live the life you please campaign aims to improve awareness about palliative care, advocate for increased access to palliative care and related health care services for all Australians, and help to start important conversations about living the life you please until the very end.
Host a film event
There is enormous strength in numbers. Getting communities to watch the Live the life you please feature film to start open conversations about palliative care and the end of life experience can help to move mountains.
With greater understanding and coordination we can do so much more to help all Australians during their last chapter.
