Our plans to build a residential hospice in Buderim were hindered by our local council in early 2020. This coincided with the start of the global COVID19 pandemic. Both events forced a strategic review of our future vision. The global pandemic especially had a significant impact on the way people wanted and expected care to be delivered.
In 2021, the Board of Sunshine Hospice Ltd formulated a new strategic blueprint. This acknowledged that community expectations and government funding policies have changed, and in-home palliative care services are now seen as the way of the future.
A new service model was developed based on collaborative relationships at its core.
