All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.



A community-funded, independent, non-denominational organisation, we support people with chronic and life-limiting illness, their carers and families in the following ways:

  • Day Hospice Program

Operating on Tuesdays, Wednesday's and Thursdays, day hospice gives carers a much-needed break while their loved one is cared for by a RN1 registered nurse and a dedicated team of volunteers who have each completed Palliative Care Victoria's volunteer training program. This is a free service.

  • Episodes of Care | End-of-Life Care

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. Referrals can be made by any individual, family member, doctor, treating specialist or a community service provider.

  • Carers' Accommodation*

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, University Hospital or Geelong Private.

* Please note: Carers' accommodation may not be suitable for those with limited mobility or families with young children.

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
