Welcome to Ipswich Hospice Care

Ipswich Hospice Care is a community organisation providing quality palliative care and grief and bereavement support to the community of West Moreton.

Services offered at Ipswich Hospice Care include a seven-bed guest wing for inpatient care, a community Nurse Practitioner service and a Grief and Bereavement Service.

Ipswich Hospice Care has successfully achieved ACHS accreditation by meeting the requirements of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care’s (the ACSQHC’s) National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.

Ipswich Hospice Care is a registered charitable organisation and proudly community owned and managed. Services are provided within the Ipswich and West Moreton region in South East Queensland.

What we do and how you can help

From the first idea to build a palliative care hospice for the community in the 1980’s, to its opening in 1995, the people of Ipswich and West Moreton committed their time and efforts to see this community place of belonging come to fruition.

This is the story of your Ipswich Hospice, a place that belongs to everyone in our community, strong in the belief that every person and their family have the right to choose how they die, and to enjoy their life to the full, right through to their final breath. Our compassionate and caring staff know how important this is and with your support we will continue to stay true to our mission to you and your loved ones.

Since 1995, over 1,000 guests supported by their families and loved ones have been a part of the compassionate and home-like care that is Ipswich Hospice, but this exceptional care can only continue with your support through our donations page please.  While Ipswich Hospice appreciates the government funding support we receive, this funding doesn’t cover the full costs of our services, leaving a $330 gap per bed per day.  We need your help to continue looking after special people like Nick, who was admitted to Hospice at the young age of 26, with a previously predicted life expectancy of a few weeks at most.

Ipswich Hospice Care is a member of the West Moreton Care at the End of Life Collaborative. This is a group of services and organisations who work together to improve end of life care for people in the West Moreton region.

If you need information about services, community groups or other resources , please visit the West Moreton Care Connect website.
