How can we help?
The Amaranth model of care is focused on the needs of the individual. Our services are provided in a holistic, family entered way with people of all ages, and all stages of their diagnosis, to help them achieve their best possible quality of life.
The experience of illness challenges people’s belief about themselves, about other people and the world. It stimulates a search for meaning. Research clearly shows that recognition of this, together with structured support significantly improves both quality of life and psychological well-being.
Our support is individualised. It may may include sessions with an Amaranth accredited Mental Health Social Worker; case management; sourcing equipment; advocacy and support; counselling and therapy, Dignity Therapy, Grief and Trauma Therapy and Advanced Care Planning.
We also work directly with families and caregivers to enable them to provide care to people living with a life limiting illness, in a supportive and empowering environment, recognising that carers and families have their own personal journey.
How can we help you?
Amaranth gives you the gift of choice as to your life decisions; yo regain the power to make decisions concerning your life outcomes.
We work with your family to help them understand the impact of loss and change in a life journey and to develop strategies and resources to help them adapt to change and find resolution.
When can we help you?
You can contact us at any time.
This service is for anyone living with a chronic, serious or life limiting illness, and would like some support. It does not matter what stage you are at; whether you are in the initial stages of your diagnosis, needing support along the way, or perhaps needing support in the final stages.
How much will it cost?
A referral can come from yourself, your care giver, your GP or your Health Care Provider. Amaranth bulk bills on receipt of a GP referral. You can also negotiate with us to pay privately for our services. Please contact us and enquire.
