Since 1992 Karuna, a Brisbane-based charity, has used its expertise and compassion to help thousands of individuals and families live a meaningful and happy life while embracing uncertainty and change.
We provide in-home palliative care, a grief and bereavement service, a learning and support service and we have a bookshop full of useful resources. We take the time to understand your needs and provide a holistic approach to delivering the best possible support.
Life is our most precious possession, its loss our most difficult yet inescapable experience. Karuna believes that having the skills and support to face the challenges and uncertainty can make the journey easier.
As a result, we have developed models of care and education which help people understand, prepare for and face the end of life with calm and acceptance.
We offer in-home palliative care in the Brisbane North, Caboolture and Redcliffe areas. In addition helpful information is available on our website and most of our support sessions and courses are run out of Karuna House at 27 Cartwright St Windsor.
In serving the community Karuna strives to follow the inspirational ideals and examples set by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Karuna’s Spiritual Patron, whose own lifelong mission is to serve others with universal compassion and kindness. These are Karuna’s underlying values.
Karuna relies heavily on the kindness of others. Only a portion of our funding comes from Queensland Health and the remaining money must be raised through donations. Community support is vital.
