Community & Family

On Saturday 5th June, 1886, Kate Mary Smith submitted an ‘Undertaker’s Notice’ in The Brisbane Courier: “The inhabitants of Brisbane and surrounding districts are respectfully informed that the long established business so successfully carried on by the late John Smith, as Undertaker, will in future be carried on by his Widow”. This was K.M. Smiths’ first sharing of ‘News & Events’ with the community and the families we respectfully continue to share our news and event items with today.

National Palliative Care week runs from Sunday 19th to Saturday 25th of May and is Australia’s largest annual initiative aimed at deepening people’s understanding of palliative care and encouraging action around end-of-life planning. While it is not a subject many people enjoy talking about, death is inevitable and planning for it is important.
The theme for 2024 is ‘People at the Heart of Quality Palliative Care’ and is aimed at encouraging Australians to connect with the doctors, nurses, social workers, volunteers and the many others involved in end-of-life care.
