Patient Accommodation


We provide dignified and much needed accommodation to patients living in rural areas that need to come to the city to receive treatment. In conjunction with our charity partners, we are proud to offer residences in most capital cities.



Our organisation has created, and continues to acquire, patient accommodation for the express purpose of assisting cancer patients and their families who need housing during their period of treatment. All properties are self-contained, 2-3 bedrooms, and of high standard, to provide not only comfort to the patient and their families but also a degree of respite during their treatment period.




I found the unit to be exceptional as it was within walking distance of the Royal Adelaide Hospital and it was central to shopping on Rundle Mall and Hutt Street.
- Graham Jolly, Naracoorte

It has proved far more than we anticipated in aiding our wellbeing during a challenging time. The extra bedrooms, space and homely feel has enable us to be surrounded by the love & support of family members and friends. The market, parklands, Botanical Gardens & nearby church have provided stimulation, beauty and peace. The cleaning service has been an added bonus. We cannot impress our gratitude enough for this amazing provision.
