The Mary Potter Foundation
At The Mary Potter Foundation we believe that caring for people at the end of their lives is an honour and a privilege. Through our donors we aim to help people to experience care which is individual and meaningful in the final months, weeks and days of life. We call this Mary Potter Care and it is about living every day, every hour.
Mary Potter Care comes in many different forms. It is the specialised medical team working alongside a team of caring and dedicated nurses. It is a family member being able to stay overnight with a loved one. It is being able to make a toasted sandwich and coffee any time of the day or night. It is having a relaxing facial or massage. It is being asked what is important to you.
From medical care in comfortable facilities to support programs and individual activities, the aim is to give each person their best possible day by supporting physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. It is about focusing on the quality of life for each person and their family knowing that while the outcome cannot be changed, the experience can.
