Palliative care helps people with a life limiting illness and their loved ones live as fully and comfortably as possible. It improves their quality of life. It provides support, freedom, dignity, respect and joy.
Palliative care enables people to live the life they please until the end.
So why aren’t we talking about it?
Live the life you please is an impact film campaign that will change the way you think about palliative care. Told by medical professionals, patients and their families, it is an intimate portrait of the end of life experience and makes profound observations about life, death and what happens in between.
It will introduce you to the advocates campaigning tirelessly to make palliative care available to every Australian where and when they need it – be that in aged care, a hospital setting or at home.
At the heart of Live the life you please are a series of unexpected moments of joy caught between caregivers, patients and their families.
Their powerful stories will show you that palliative care is more than medicine. It’s about quality of life. It’s about providing physical, social, emotional and spiritual support to patients and their loved ones.
It’s about embracing every moment and living the life you please until the very end.
