Great to visit the site and see the progress of the project as it marks a milestone of all external structural works being completed. Attention now turns to creating functional, attractive and homely internal and garden areas before the building is completed mid-year.
Dr Suharsha Kanathigoda, Medical Director of the Calvary Specialist Palliative Care Service, is inviting people whose lives have been touched by the services at Clare Holland House to support this next stage of the project.
“Over the years many families, friends, and patients have wanted a way to tangibly express their gratitude for the care that they themselves or someone close to them received. They now have the opportunity to make a general donation, create their own tribute page, or host – actually or virtually – their own fundraising event. At Clare Holland House we strive to create a calm and comfortable environment. Important elements of that include the soft furnishings, and fittings and making our gardens and grounds an extension of our clinical spaces. This is particularly important for our younger people and paediatric patients who are admitted for inpatient palliative care.”
The Snow Foundation donated $2M towards the Clare Holland House expansion and are actively supporting the community fundraising program.
