Most people with a life-limiting illness want to remain in their own home for as long as possible.
Caring for someone with a life-limiting illness can be both rewarding and demanding – for the carer, and also their loved one. For many, it is a privilege and it strengthens relationships. However, it can also be incredibly challenging at a time when people are at their most vulnerable.
Leo’s Place is a home away from home providing:
overnight respite – for people with a life-limiting illness, with the option of their carer staying with them day respite – providing support and care for people with a life-limiting illness, to allow carers to have a short break carer support – access to advice, information, and self-care activities
Leo’s Place is an initiative of Palliative Care ACT, supported by the ACT Government, local businesses, philanthropic organisations and generous members of our community. Donations are welcome to support this important and innovative community service.
