We believe everyone has the right to receive the care they need comfortably at home, surrounded by friends and family.

Nearly 70% of Australians would prefer to die at home but only 15% are able to do so.1

With over 40 years of experience, Silverchain provides palliative care for people with life-limiting illnesses in Western Australia (WA), South Australia (SA), New South Wales (NSW), and Queensland (QLD). Our expert care team works together with you and your family to provide compassionate, sensitive, and culturally appropriate care.

Our care team can you to:

  • Understand your illness and adapt to the changes in your health.
  • Manage your pain and symptoms.
  • Monitor your medications to reduce side effects.
  • Provide your family and carers with the support they need.

Other services we provide can include personal care, social support, nursing, and allied health services to meet your physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs.

We’re here for you at all stages of your journey. You can receive care for several days or months at a time depending on your needs, and access 24/7 in-person, video, or phone support.

We will also keep your health professionals informed.
