National Palliative Care Week launch at Bear Cottage

On Sunday, May 22, CEO Linda Hansen joined Palliative Care Australia at Bear Cottage,  NSW’s only children’s hospice, to officially launch National Palliative Care Week.

Nurse Manager at Bear Cottage Narelle Martin spoke to those in attendance about the facility.

“Children don’t come here to die – they come here to live”

“Bear Cottage is not a place of darkness and despair, but one of light, love, laughter and most importantly life”

We would like to thank all those working at Bear Cottage for their hard work and dedication in the support and care of paediatric palliative care patients and their families.
