Stirling Cross Apartments – Perth
The Leukaemia Foundation’s essential services will now be based in one central location for the first time in the organisation’s 25 year history in Western Australia. The Stirling Cross Apartments based at Innaloo opened its doors in January to provide families, with vital accommodation when they are forced to relocate to Perth for life-saving treatment.
The Leukaemia Foundation offers 10 fully furnished one and two bedroom apartments for accommodation at the Stirling Cross Apartments at Innaloo.
The Stirling Cross Apartment complex offers a safe, secure and central location close to essential amenities and services, less than 25 minutes from all major metropolitan treating hospitals, and with easy access to a major transportation hub.
It is important that people undergoing treatment for blood cancer are supported by their family and can maintain those familial bonds whilst undergoing treatment. Each of the fully furnished apartments includes a sofa bed, allowing even the one bedroom apartments to accommodate three people, keeping the family unit together.
Blood cancer support staff will be located on site and available for patient and carer support during the week.
Bill Petch, CEO said the new units represents a significant milestone for the Leukaemia Foundation supporting West Australians living with blood cancer.
“With the co-location of accommodation with our blood cancer support services and administration office, we will be close at hand in a brand new, safe and secure ‘home-away-from-home’, with incredible amenities and, importantly, all major treatment hospitals accessible within 25 minutes of the complex,” Mr Petch said.
