Annual Giving Campaign June 2018


Anam Cara Geelong is once again launching its Annual Giving Appeal. Your financial support will help ensure we can continue to support people in our local community, the wider Geelong and South West region and beyond.

On behalf of the Anam Cara House Geelong Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers we would like to once again thank supporters most sincerely for their generous pledge to donate to our organisationís second Annual Giving Appeal in 2017. Your donations helped ensure our essential hospice services were made readily available to many more people in need in our community. As you are aware, Anam Cara Geelong makes a significant and †positive difference to the lives of those with a life-limiting illness, while also providing invaluable support to their carers and families. Our services keep families together and our guests in their own homes for a longer period.

You may have heard that Anam Cara House Geelong has been awarded a State Government grant to provide extended care for our day hospice and community outreach for assessment and referral services for guests and carers. We are very grateful for this funding and it will make a significant difference to the number of people we are able to care for.

However, the State Government funding does not cover any part of our out of home overnight palliative respite and end of life care, along with the costs required to run these areas of our organisation.

To continue this much needed service to those who require support and later, may wish to have their end of life care in a homelike environment if they cannot be in their own homes, we are totally reliant on donations. Our Annual Giving monies will be directed to this part of our service enabling us to provide more nights of care. Please read Simon and Rachelleís story which is under our Day Hospice Tab on our website. We are most grateful to them both for sharing part of their journey with us, and for validating the important role of Anam Cara House in their daily lives.

Anam Cara House Geelong is the only service of its kind in Geelong and surrounding areas. Our organisation is staffed by highly skilled and experienced nurses who practice person centred care and optimal palliative care; and is supported by experienced medical practitioners 24/7, along with our dedicated team of trained Volunteers.

We are, as always, very appreciative of your support. We understand that there are many worthy causes that approach the Geelong Community for donations and are therefore thankful for the privilege of being a recipient. Your ongoing support allows us to continue our overnight palliative respite and end of life care, and supports the entire family while their loved ones are being cared for at Anam Cara House Geelong.

Geelong needs an Anam Cara House. We need your help to continue to provide these critical community services and to fund the future of Anam Care, so please give generously during our 2018 Annual Giving Appeal by clicking the HERE.

Thank you for helping us to make a real difference to people in our community and for your continued support.
