From May 21st to May 27th, 2023, National Palliative Care Week will be held in Australia, with the aim of bringing attention to the importance of ‘Matters of Life and Death’. To further this message, there will be the world premiere of ‘Live the life you please‘, a documentary produced by Moonshine Agency. The film tells the personal stories of real people from all over Australia, including Geelong, sharing their experiences with palliative care. The documentary is emotional, heartwarming, and occasionally tear-jerking, as these diverse Australians share the last chapter of their lives with us.
Barwon Health’s palliative care team is dedicated to supporting those with terminal illnesses, as well as their families and friends, across the entire Geelong Region. Palliative care is focused on improving a person’s quality of life by managing symptoms and meeting their social, emotional, and spiritual needs. Additionally, it provides support, advice, and education to family and friends.
Barwon Health’s Palliative Care team strives to provide inclusive care for everyone, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, LGBTIQA+ people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disabilities, and people from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.
Kings Funerals has been working closely with Barwon Health’s palliative care team for a significant amount of time.
Two showings of the documentary will be held at Village Cinemas Geelong on Tuesday May 23rd, and Sunday June 4th. After the Tuesday screening, a Q&A panel featuring some of the documentary’s participants, members of the palliative care team, and Julie, Kings Funerals pre-paid consultant, will be available to address any questions that may arise.
We hope to see you there.
