On Tuesday 25th June, we’re embarking on our ‘Double the Care’ Giving Day to raise $750,000 for palliative care. Every $1 donated, will be quadrupled in value.

Our World-Class Facility is Open

The new Anam Cara House Geelong is more than a boutique state-of-the-art palliative care hospital – we’ve created a sanctuary, a home, built by the community, for the community.

Our meticulously designed spaces blend hospital standards with the comforts of home and provide a serene backdrop for our guests to find solace amidst the challenge of their journey. With picturesque views, natural sunlight and access to the Wadawurrung Garden, every aspect of our environment is tailored to promote comfort.

Accepting Referrals for Overnight Care

Our beautiful bedrooms with ensuites, that are large enough for family and even pets to stay, are open and we are now accepting referrals.

All patients with a life-limiting illness are eligible for admission to Anam Cara House Geelong. We welcome anyone regardless of their geographic location. 

What we do

Welcome to Anam Cara House Geelong - where the global benchmark in person-centred palliative care seamlessly integrates with the warmth of our community.

In one of the most tranquil and idyllic environments, Anam Cara offers a comprehensive range of palliative care services tailored to individual and family needs. From our overnight palliative care and community outreach to our bespoke day program and emotional and spiritual support services, we prioritise our guests, their families and carers above all else. What truly sets us apart is our exemplary medical and nursing model – it is unique, sophisticated, and different to most other palliative care services across the country.

Jeanette & Chris - The Carer's Story

Anam Cara provides support and care for all of our guests, but let's not forget how important it is to help the hard-working carers, too.

24 hours 7 days a week with her partner Chris, Jeanette was never getting a break as his full-time carer. Anam Cara ticked all the boxes. When Chris goes to Anam Cara he is almost euphoric. Jeanette turns around and walks away with her big list of things to do, she never turns around and looks back – she knows he is safe.

Our Living Well Day Palliative Care Program is operating at our facility at Deakin University, Waurn Ponds. 

Our Administration Office is open 9:00am-4:30pm Monday to Friday at Zone 4, Nicol Drive South, Deakin University, Waurn Ponds. 

Having a choice is what the people of Geelong deserve.
Our guests are given dignity and the highest-level of comfort and care when it matters most.
