Welcome to Wedgetail Retreat
Wedgetail Retreat is a modern, purpose-built centre run by the not-for-profit organisation, Tweed Palliative Support Inc (TPS). Wedgetail Retreat is based just outside of Murwillumbah in the beautiful NSW Far North Coast hinterland. It is a tranquil alternative to a busy hospital or aged-care facility for those experiencing the unimaginable, a life-limiting illness. Wedgetail Retreat is there for people of all ages and their family.
The centre aims to provide:
- An inclusive, uplifting and supportive educational, respite and live-in environment for those living with cancer or a life-limiting illness.
- Positive Living strategies and programs which enhance a client’s well-being and provide optimal quality of life during their time at Wedgetail Retreat.
- 24-hour nursing care where the nurses not only assist with medical management for clients but enhance their well-being on a daily basis through their training in Positive Living strategies.
- Support to carers and families during this time.
Thousands of people living with cancer have benefited from the regular Sunshine ‘Pamper’ Days held at Wedgetail Retreat, others through our education programs, respite accommodation, hospice support and palliative care. This ‘special place’ has inspirational garden and valley views, wrap-around timber verandas and is a comfortable space to call ‘home’.
Wedgetail Retreat accepts Australians of any age, from all over the country. At present, we offer this valuable service free from charge. Our ultimate aim is to have 24-hour medical staff on hand working beside our trained volunteer carers and families to provide comfort and care for your loved ones.
