NSW - Sydney and Newcastle
The Leukaemia Foundation offers 'home-away-from-home' accommodation in locations close to several major treatment centres in Newcastle and Sydney.
Thanks to the Hunter Community Committee and Room for Improvement, the Jim Simpson Patient and Family Accommodation Complex is across the road from the Mater and close to the John Hunter Hospital. The facility can accommodate up to three families at one time.
The accommodation has wheelchair access and access to onsite Leukaemia Foundation staff and resources.
The Phillip Desbrow Accommodation Complex at Waverton provides six two-bedroom, self-contained apartments, including one with disabled access.
The Leukaemia Foundation Patient and Family Accommodation Complex is close to Westmead Hospital and the Children's Hospital at Westmead.
Providing six two bedroom, fully self-contained apartments, including one with disabled access, they have everything needed to truly be a 'home away from home' for families from regional areas.
Each apartment includes a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom and lounge. Outside there is a shared children's playground and a growing book and music library. Care is also at hand here from Leukaemia Foundation staff based nearby.
