Carer Accommodation


The Australian Unity Foundation has granted Anam Cara Geelong funding for its Carer Accommodation Program. This grant will enable us to not only continue this invaluable program, but to accommodate those guests unable to pay the full or part cost of their carer accommodation at Anam Cara Geelong. It is impossible to put a monetary valuable on what this will mean to those struggling with the challenges of being away from home with a loved one in hospital.


Palliative Care Nursing


The Geelong Community Foundation has generously funded nights of nursing for our palliative guests. Overnight respite and end of life care is an essential service of Anam Cara House Geelong and without this funding we are forced to turn people away. Our respite program ensures each guest receives support from a Division One Registered Nurse and trained Volunteers, with ther medical and other needs managed on an individual basis.


Day Hospice


Give Where You Live has generously donated $10,000 for our Day Hospice under its Health & Wellbeing Program. Day Hospice provides local families caring for a loved one with a chronic or terminal illness much-needed respite during the day. Our flexible and personalised approach provides carers with peace-of-mind and enables them to go about their daily lives without apprehension about their loved ones.


Equipment, Materials & Services


Funded by the Percy Baxter Trust, managed by Perpetual.

The Percy Baxter Trust, managed by Perpetual, has funded the purchase of a new mini bus with wheelchair and side step access. The bus will be used to transport our guests to and from their home and for special day hospice excursions. The bus is not only a form of transport but also gives freedom to our guests to do the things they most want to do as part of their end of life journey.
