palative care is free through Medicare. Get in touch with his GP or oncologist and they will be able to get this in place.
my mum was with silver chain and they were all so amazing. All there services from cooking to cleaning to personal care etc was free of charge also. They would anything to help you and the family out in anyway
we had the social worker come out once but between 3 adults looking after mum we didn't need the addional services.
I guess if you go privately you pay for this or the gap if you have private Heath although not sure on this as mum was a public patient.
Hope this info helps.
