Background

The State Government is delivering on its commitment to improve and diversify quality palliative care options in South Australia.

The Palliative Care 2020 Grants Program helped improved access to and diversified quality palliative care services – for priority populations as well as South Australians living in residential aged care facilities through palliative care projects in partnership with the non-government sector.

The Department for Health and Wellbeing acknowledges the Commonwealth Government for its co-contribution in funding the Residential Aged Care Facility Grants through the Comprehensive Palliative Care in Aged Care Project Agreement.
