‘Live the life you please’ is a film-led social impact campaign that will change the way we think about the last chapter of life.
The campaign aims to improve awareness about palliative care, advocate for increased access to essential palliative care and related health care services for all Australians and help to start important conversations about living the life you please until the very end.
End of life care helps people and their loved ones live as fully and comfortably as possible. It improves their quality of life. It provides support, freedom, dignity, respect and joy.
‘Live the life you please’ is a powerful documentary film about living and dying in Australia. It will make you smile, laugh, laugh more, and occasionally shed a tear. Be prepared to witness a treasure trove of incredible stories captured all around Australia, from cities and regional centres to remote communities.
“I wept most of the way through this film. It wasn’t because it was about death, and nor was it because it recounts real pain and tragedy. It was because it was so beautiful,” says Dr. Dan Fleming, St Vincent’s Health Australia.
The film by Palliative Care Australia will be launched at Parliament House in Canberra on 22 May and will help launch National Palliative Care Week. South West Compassionate Communities Network together with the Bunbury Cemetery Board are hosting the film screening event on
