An independent voice for the community We are the only locally owned and operated community newspaper on the Mornington Peninsula. We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

New home for home carers AFTER seven months of planning, renovation, refurbishment, tradies, dust and dirt, the Peninsula Home Hospice (PHH) is operating from its new Mornington offices. Previously PHH had been working from two separate sites - Golf Links Rd, Frankston and Railway Grove, Mornington - but now, for the first time in more than 10 years, it is being run from one office. “Since the organisation began in 1984, PHH has relocated on several occasions, largely to accommodate growing demand for services and meet the increasing need for space and facilities that reflect the growing role and importance of the organisation within the community,” CEO Rachel Bovenizer said. “The [latest] building was very dated and required a complete overhaul, including installation of an internal lift for disabled access, with the end result being a home of which we are all extremely proud and one that provides more readily accessible service for our clients and carers, both now and into the future.” PHH supports on the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston

and south of Mordialloc Creek who are living with a terminal illness and choose to receive palliative care in their home. “The new premises provide us with new opportunity. We now have an independent profile that is visible to the community, the location is central to our client base and we have the space to create different programs to address the changing needs of people facing the end of their lives,” Ms Bovenizer said. “As well as the chance to expand on client services, the organisation is keen to develop new corporate partnerships throughout its service delivery area, such as the one with Mornington Village Pharmacy, which works closely with the nursing team to provide information and access to specific palliative care medication.” Mrs Bovenizer said the future of PHH “depends on community support”. PHH, at 327 Main St, Mornington, opens 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, (excluding public holidays), visit www. peninsulahospice.com.au or call 5973 2400.
