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.
Some staff have very specific responsibilities in the provision of care to residents and support to families. There are individual web pages in this section for these service groups. The pages are written to support care with the best available evidence. There are also pages in CareSearch for other professionals who may also provide palliative services to residents in aged care.
