Information for Guests & Carers

Are you living with or caring for someone with a life limiting illness?

Caring for a loved one with a long-term or life-limiting illness can be a very challenging time for everyone involved. Sometimes it’s nice to know that you’re not alone and that you do have support.

Gaelic for ‘Soul Friend’, Anam Cara House Colac is a community owned hospice that supports guests and carers by providing respite, palliative care and end of life care for the people of South West Victoria. Not only will your loved ones appreciate the home-like, peaceful surroundings, they will also be looked after by trained staff so you can take a break.

Please phone our Nurse Manager, Karen Eccles. She will be happy to show you around the hospice and discuss your individual care needs with you.

Anam Cara House Colac is a member of Palliative Care Victoria Inc (PCV) and the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC).
