Live the life you please is an impact film campaign that will change the way you think about palliative care. Told by medical professionals, patients and their families, it is an intimate portrait of the end-of-life experience and makes profound observations about life, death and what happens in between.
Live the life you please boasts a treasure trove of incredible stories captured around Australia, from cities and regional centres to remote communities. It will make you smile, laugh, laugh harder and occasionally shed a tear as it shares the stories of a diverse range of Australians experiencing their last chapter.
Stories include Australians of all ages, different stages of disease and a variety of geographical locations, cultural, socio-economic and personal circumstances.
It will introduce you to the advocates campaigning tirelessly to make palliative care available to every Australian where and when they need it – be that in aged care, a hospital setting or at home.
At the heart of Live the life you please is a series of unexpected moments of joy caught between caregivers, patients and their families. Their powerful stories will show you that palliative care is more than medicine. It’s about quality of life. It’s about providing physical, social, emotional and spiritual support to patients and their loved ones.
