Chris O’Brien Lifehouse wants to ensure patients, their families and carers are as comfortable as possible during their time with us.
Our team strives to create a nurturing, comfortable and supportive environment to help ease some of the angst and stress our patients and their loved ones feel after a cancer diagnosis and in the lead up to, during and after treatment. Patients, their carers and their families are invited to use and enjoy our range of facilities including:
