Compassionate Care

Throughout our lives, most of us will have experience with the palliative health care system. It can undoubtedly be an emotional and uncertain time in our lives.

Hospice Foundation Geelong aims to ease this burden and to provide individuals and their loved ones with support during this time.

Patients can receive the very best care in our region thanks to our wonderful community of generous supporters. This community includes individual donors who contribute to Hospice Foundation Geelong financially, corporate supporters who provide in-kind support and resources, community partners who provide experiences and opportunities for patients, and our local service providers who provide the best possible care.

Get involved. Your support means a lot!
