Anam Cara Geelong provides palliative care for people with a chronic or terminal illness in a "home away from home" environment.

A community-funded, independent organisation, we support carers by providing respite - or "time out" - where their family member can have a short stay in our beautiful heritage-listed House. Guests can attend a day program or stay in our overnight accommodation, while our end-of-life care supports the whole family. Carers can also access low-cost accommodation at the House.

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


The State Government of Victoria is holding an Inquiry into end of life choices.

A hearing was held in Geelong on Wednesday 29th July 2015.

Anam Cara Geelong was delighted to be invited to present our Hospice Services to the hearing panel including the ability of Anam Cara to provide more but being unable to because of not having recurrent funding source.

Anam Cara has provided a full submission to this hearing - we hope to be able to showcase Anam Cara Geelong to the Minister for Health in the very near future.
