Karuna Care

Karuna offers a unique in-home and community based palliative care service.

We understand that the diagnosis of a life threatening health condition may be the most confronting experience in life.  Caring for a loved one at home when their health is deteriorating may be an unfamiliar and distressing role.

For more than 28 years Karuna has helped thousands of Queenslanders facing incurable illness to be where they want to be: with family, friends or loved ones, whilst receiving the best of care.

Our specialist staff work in partnership with clients and their loved ones to offer expert clinical and emotional support so that remaining at home is possible, peaceful and positive.

Karuna’s Home & Community Palliative Care is a no-fee service accessible throughout Brisbane’s Northern suburbs, Caboolture, Redcliffe and Bribie Island.

Karuna’s services include:

  • Assessment of client health and social needs
  • Pain and symptom management

  • Liaising with the family GP and medical specialist
  • Family counselling and emotional support
