Voula Kallianis 

As a palliative care social worker at St Vincent’s Caritas Christi Hospice, Voula Kallianis has seen the many faces of sadness. She has also seen the strength, dignity and quiet moments of serenity of those she cares for.

 

Voula has been with at Caritas Christi Hospice for five years. Prior to this she spent almost two decades in a variety of settings including hospitals and crisis work with many people coming from non-English speaking backgrounds. She believes it is a privilege to provide comfort and assistance to palliative care patients and their families.

 

Voula works alongside a team of doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, masseurs, music therapists, personal care workers, volunteers and personal services assistants. She says she draws inspiration from those who remind her that they are still living, or as one patient described it, that the glass is half full because it can always be topped up.
