Frequently asked questions

We’ve answered some of the most common questions we receive about dementia care.

How do we tailor palliative care for residents with dementia?

At Oxa Care, we tailor palliative care for residents with dementia by adopting a personalised approach. Our dedicated team considers individual needs, behavioural aspects, and emotional well-being. Through specialised interventions, we aim to enhance comfort, maintain dignity, and provide holistic support that prioritises the unique challenges associated with dementia.

Does dementia qualify for palliative care?

Absolutely. Dementia is recognised as a life-limiting illness, and elderly individuals experiencing its early and advanced stages are eligible for palliative care at Oxa Care. Our comprehensive approach addresses the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of residents, ensuring a compassionate and supportive environment throughout their journey.

Can family members actively engage in the palliative care process?

Yes, we encourage and value active family engagement in the palliative care process. At Oxa Care, we recognise the importance of family involvement and foster open communication channels. Family members are integral partners in creating personalised care plans, ensuring the well-being and preferences of their loved ones are at the forefront of our approach.

Addressing end-of-life challenges for residents with dementia is a priority at Oxa Care. Our team employs a compassionate and multidisciplinary approach, enhancing the quality of life, providing comfort, and supporting residents and their families through this sensitive time.

Does Medicare cover palliative care for dementia?

Medicare typically covers the majority of your palliative care expenses, and additional coverage may be provided by private health insurance when utilising private health services. However, certain services might incur out-of-pocket costs. Our team assists families in navigating the financial aspects and optimising the available resources to support the best possible care for residents with dementia.
