Anam Cara Geelong offers support to people of all ages who are seeking palliative care within the greater Geelong community.

We are a community-funded, non-denominational organisation made up of compassionate health professionals, volunteers and supporters working together to provide day and overnight respite, as well as end-of-life care, in a "home like" environment.

Anam Cara Geelong also offers low-cost, short-term accommodation for people with a loved one staying at any one of the nearby hospitals in Geelong or who may be receiving treatment themselves.

If you would like to inquire about any of our services, please call us Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm on (03) 5222 5831 or email
