Fernlea House Appeal

Fernlea House provides day respite for people with life limiting illnesses, chronic conditions and dementia, who need special support for themselves and their families.

We operate 5 sessions per week in two locations - Emerald and Pakenham, to cover the Eastern and Southern parts of Melbourne.

Highly trained volunteers support the delivery of our program as well as providing transport, complimentary therapies, memoir writing and in home supports.

Fernlea Life Care is a fee for service initiative providing home help, personal care and nursing services to people in their homes for reasonable fees.
