Southern Highlands Community Hospice

About Us

The Southern Highlands Community Hospice (SHCH) was established in July 2010 as a Charitable organisation, to provide hospice and palliative care services for the Southern Highlands community.

There are minimal specialist palliative care services in the catchment area, which includes Wingecarribee Shire as well as parts of Mulwaree, Shoalhaven and Wollondilly Shires. SHCH takes responsibility for raising funds though the generosity of the local community. Currently, SHCH is focusing on various palliative in-home support services.

In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it.

Life Stories and Treasured Memories

Biography Services

Life goes by so quickly and all of us have a story to tell.

A personal biography gives you an opportunity to reflect, be heard and discover your significance. It provides a place to document memories, acknowledge loved ones, wisdom and share your experiences. SHCH has trained volunteers to write your story, in your words.

The Biography is presented to you in high quality bound books, along with an electronic version for continued editing and reprinting.

The process takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks consisting of 1 hour sessions each week being the optimum time frame to maintain consistency. Of course we fully appreciate health issues may cause this to vary and we remain client-focussed in all our interactions.

All biographies are produced by Southern Highlands Community Hospice at no cost to the client.

Please contact our biography coordinator Kate Fletcher on biography@shchospice.org.au or 0412 575 277 to organise an introductory discussion.
