'MAZI' Palliative Care Project

The “mazi”  project is a  Palliative Care community education program funded for three years by the Department of Health and Human Services.

“mazi” aims to:

  • Inform the Greek community about Palliative Care, especially carers of people who live with a chronic, life-limiting illness.
  • Raise awareness of issues related to the experience of death and normalise this concept as an important part of life.
  • Improve the quality of life of carers and loved ones living with incurable or chronic diseases
  • Inform and present to other organisations and professionals about the importance of this program and our course of actions.

Our objectives:

  • Facilitate peer support groups for carers of people living with chronic, life-limiting illnesses in three geographical areas:  Brunswick, Clayton and West Sunshine
  • Offer individualised counselling services for carers
  • Set up an annual  carers retreat in the outskirts of Melbourne to enhance the carers’ wellbeing and stamina
  • Facilitate community education for professionals and other organisations
