Operating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, day hospice gives carers a much-needed break while their loved one is cared for by a Registered nurse and a dedicated team of volunteers who have each completed Palliative Care Victoria's volunteer training program. This is a free service.
A fully accredited yet home-like environment, Anam Cara House provides holistic, person-centred care by RN1 registered nursing staff, supported by dedicated and caring volunteers who have each completed Palliative Care Victoria's volunteer training program.
Low-cost bed and breakfast accommodation in our heritage-listed house is available to carers and families of end-of-life and overnight respite guests; as well as carers and families who have a loved one at one of Geelong's nearby hospitals - St John of God or University Hospital.
A community-funded, independent, non-denominational organisation, we support people with chronic and life-limiting illness, their carers and families in many ways.
To enquire about any of our services, please contact our office Monday to Friday from 9am and 5pm at 142 Myers Street, Geelong, phone (03) 5222 5831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
