Bear Cottage Children's Hospice
Bear Cottage is the only children's hospice in NSW and one of only three such facilities in Australia.
At Bear Cottage we provide specialised paediatric palliative care in a home like environment to patients from newborn to 18 years. Through our respite and end of life care programs we support the psychosocial needs of the entire family. This specialised clinical and psychosocial care is provided at no cost to patients and families.
With annual operating costs of $4m, we rely on corporate and community support to ensure our services remain available at no cost to the many families in the community who are caring for a child with a terminal or life limiting illness.
