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 stay in our beautiful heritage-listed House at no cost. 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
