Hospice care is a type of health care that focuses on the palliation of a terminally ill patient’s pain and symptoms and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs at the end of life. Hospice care prioritises comfort and quality of life by reducing pain and suffering for the patient and their family. Most countries with advanced economies will have a hospice in every region of the country. These numbers are approximate;
there are 5,500 hospices in the United States
235 in Germany
155 in England
33 in N.Z.
In Queensland, we have 5.
The Mountain Cares is the country’s latest Australian hospice, a charity providing free holistic hospice care at home with Nurses & Health Care Workers for terminally ill residents through to their final place of rest. Where The Mountain Cares stands out, is they intend on creating a simple framework, a written and visual guide, that will explain in layman’s terms how to setup and establish a hospice for any community Australia-wide that wishes to have one.
And to do this, 100 Acts of Kindness Films will be filming the stories of several individuals, living the last of their days, and their families being cared for by The Mountain Cares. The hospice will help them travel in style (see pictures below) to tick off their bucket list, and we’ll be there every step of the way to show what a difference a hospice can make to those that need it. Hopefully this will lead to change with every community nationwide seeing the benefits of having such a special place.
We produce films of all kinds for businesses, projects and causes all around Australia from the Sunshine Coast to Brisbane to the Gold Coast, the difference between us and a videoghrapher is we don’t just film footage and append it to stock music. We tell a story with emotional intelligence to fully engage your viewer.
