We have time to listen to you…

“You matter because you are you; and you matter to the last moment of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully but to live until you die.” – Dame Cicely Saunders

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?” The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”

“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and thousands of starfish? “You can’t make a difference!”

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said… “I made a difference for that one.”

About Us

Compassionate Nurses is a niche Nursing Service started in 2008 by Chris, a Registered Nurse with a passion for making a difference during those most precious last days of life.

Slipping seamlessly into your home a Compassionate Nurse will take the weight off your shoulders, so that you can relax, get some sleep and focus on being able to treasure your remaining time with your loved one.

What sets us apart from other agencies is that we are a niche Nursing Service, specialising in how best to support both the client and their carer through the process of dying.

We can assist you with breakthrough medications, guide you through the emotional journey and how the process unfolds, give you suggestions on how you can contribute in a positive way, and assist you to ‘put things in order’.  We stay with you through the last goodbye and gently assist you with the next couple of hours.
