Karuna Hospice Services has offered a free, home-based palliative care service for more than 30 years.
The not-for-profit charity supports people with life-limiting terminal illness, their carers and families across Brisbane's northern suburbs through to Deception Bay, Redcliffe, Bribie Island and Caboolture.
It works in collaboration with the patient's GP and/or specialist to provide holistic, integrative nursing and medical care and practical, social, emotional and spiritual care at no cost.
Its commitment to clients is to honour their lives and give comfort to their families.
The service is offered seven days a week and includes 24-hour phone support and after hours nursing visits.
Chief executive Tracey Porst said more than 200 patients were cared for each year.
In fact, 2098 families have been supported by Karuna Hospice Services since 2016.
"Where possible, we ensure that remaining at home is possible, peaceful and positive for those who require palliative and end-of-life care," she said.
Mrs Porst said care is tailored to the patient's individual needs.
Raising funds is crucial to help the service deliver personalised and holistic palliative care.
"Donations ensure more patients and families have access to Karuna's free services in the comfort of their chosen environment," Mrs Porst said.
"A donation helps Karuna grant that one final wish and helps families to be together at home during their loved one's final journey."
People interested could also volunteer their time and skills with fundraising activities such as craft, administration and marketing.
