Philosophy of care

To provide guests, families and friends with a home-like atmosphere – friendly, welcoming, emotionally supportive, and nurturing. Our first priority is to relieve suffering; whether it is physical or emotional.

Type of accommodation

Rotary Hospice House is a ten-bed facility designed to provide care to anyone who is suffering with an advanced chronic illness, or a life threatening illness.

People choose to become a guest at the Rotary Hospice House for a number of reasons such as:

  • Short-term assistance in the transition from hospital to home
  • Short-term control of symptoms (pain, nausea, fatigue, difficulty

  • The need for respite for their main caregiver

  • They require end of life care in their final day (breathing etc)

Family physicians continue the care of their patients while at the house.
