Our Current Appeal
ICU Family Accommodation
In the past year, 93 patients and their families in ICU travelled over 80 kilometres to access our vital services, spending 935 nights away from home. To care for their loved ones, families of ICU patients need to follow them to hospital.
Leaving for Melbourne often on short notice, and needing to find accommodation in unfamiliar surroundings during what is already a highly stressful time.
Sarah Connelly knows the stress of this all too well.
This is why we need your help to build ICU Family Accommodation.
This appeal is aiming to lessen the burden on the families of other patients in intensive care by providing a home near the hospital. Carers and families have much greater troubles concerning them than finding a suitable place to stay with a sick loved one.
