Sunraysia to drive hospice

FINDING out what the community wants is the next step in achieving a palliative care hospice for Mildura, according to Chaffey Aged Care executive officer Darren Midgley.

Mr Midgley was among a group including Mildura Council, Mildura MP Peter Crisp, Sunraysia Community Health and Chaffey Aged Care which met recently to discuss the best way forward for the hospice.

The project has been driven for the past six years by local palliative care volunteer and committed fundraiser Cas Driscoll, who guided a community effort to build the Robinvale Palliative Care Unit 18 years ago.
