Residential Aged Care

  • Residential Aged Care (RAC) staff
    care for many older Australians at the
    end-of-life. These staff have a diverse
    range of skills that can meet the
    palliative care needs of residents.
    Together they provide care, comfort
    and social support in a familiar and
    homelike environment.


This hub of information and resources is changing. We are consolidating palliative care evidence and resources for aged care in the palliAGED website. To find out more about the coming changes visit the RAC Hub Project page.
