Palliative Care Queensland

Jane is an 82-year-old woman who lives alone
on a small property 25kms from the township of Ingham. Jane has lived alone for 10 years after
her husband died. She drives to town once a
week to pick up groceries and medications and attend any relevant appointments. However,
Jane is not active outside of these activities due
to her age, frailty, and medical conditions. Jane
has recently been diagnosed with Coronary
Artery Disease and was told by her cardiologist it
would be too risky to perform surgery and she
would be managed conservatively with
medication to reduce her symptoms.
