Very Special Kids Hospice in Malvern is a children’s hospice where families can access planned and emergency respite, as well as end-of-life care.
Providing 24 hour specialist care with nurses that are trained in complex needs. During a respite stay at Very Special Kids Hospice, the hospice team of doctors, nurses, carers and trained volunteers become familiar with the child’s care needs and work to a routine the child knows at home, which provides parents or primary carers the ability to relax.
As an integral element for our family support program, Very Special Kids Hospice provides families with much-needed planned and emergency respite care. The hospice makes it possible for families to have a break, from a 24-hour care routine they may so desperately need.
The Very Special Kids Hospice is a home-away-from home that features bright lounge areas, soft-play areas, gardens, a music therapy room, a multi-sensory room and fun-filled school holiday and weekend activities.
