Ambulance Wish Western Australia

$

Ambulance Wish Western Australia's purpose is to provide meaningful and positive end-of-life experiences for terminally ill, immobile West Australians.  Ambulance Wish Western Australia’s mission is to give terminally ill patients the resources, specialist transport and medical care they need to fulfil their final wishes. Wishes can be simple; a last visit home or to a place of personal significance. It’s usually the little things that mean the most to a person nearing the end of their life, but these can seem impossible.

This service will be offered to all patients free of charge, regardless of age, race, religion or nationality, and with a warm and heartfelt embrace.

The objectives of the Ambulance Wish programme are to: 
• Provide meaningful and positive end-of-life experiences for terminally ill West Australians;
• Improve the end-of-life experience for families (and significant others);
• Build a network of medically trained volunteers to assist in fulfilling the wishes of terminally ill West Australians; and
• Develop the qualities of compassion, empathy and kindness for health professionals.

Ambulance Wish Western Australia is inspired by and working in collaboration with the Netherlands charity Stichting Ambulance Wens. We are excited to welcome this unique and heart warming charity to Western Australia. With medically trained volunteers and adapted ambulances we fulfil the desires of those who are in need of assistance to experience one final wish.

Ambulance Wish Western Australia is run entirely on charitable donations and receives no Government funding. It requires corporate partnerships, donations, philanthropists and community fundraising to ensure its outcomes are achieved. Managed by volunteers, every dollar goes to operating Ambulance Wish Western Australia and fulfilling last wishes. 

Ambulance Wish Western Australia recently launched its spring appeal to raise funds for its first ‘Wish Ambulance’, the vehicle which will allow immobile, terminally ill West Australians to fulfil their final wishes.
