We're proud to announce that Bendigo Health has received a grant from the Dry July Foundation 2018 Grant Program.
The grant will go towards the following:
• Upgrades to Lucan Street cancer patient accommodation including new lighting and fittings, a new recliners for cancer patients, to make the accommodation more comfortable
2018 funds will improve cancer patient accommodation
Thanks to funds raised through Dry July 2018, Bendigo Health will be upgrading their Lucan Street Cancer Patient Accommodation.
The accommodation is essential and used by patients that have to travel long distances to receive cancer treatment. It is imperative to provide a comfortable and homely setting where they can rest and read.
The 6 units are booked constantly and operate year round to provide this reasonably priced accommodation to assist families at a time when they are dealing with the challenges of their treatment and away from home.This service is greatly appreciated by patients who have stayed and their loved ones.
Improving the surrounds and setting helps them feel safe and comfortable.
The Lucan Street property with its close proximity to the Hospital is our busiest cancer accommodation property running at around 80% occupancy year round. On average there is some 1752 room nights produced by the 6 units at the Lucan Street property on a yearly basis.
