What accommodation options does Cancer Council WA offer?

Our two self-catering accommodation Lodges in Perth offer a home-away-from-home for regional cancer patients and their carers while they access treatments and cancer related appointments in the metro area. The Lodges offer comfortable, clean and safe motel-style accommodation with on-site support services.

Our Cancer Council WA Cancer Support Coordinator is available at the Lodges to provide support to those newly diagnosed and/or undergoing treatment for cancer, their families and/or carers through the provision of social, emotional and practical support.

Guests must be able to either look after themselves or be accompanied by a carer, as neither facility provides personal or nursing care.

Both facilities are strictly smoke-free.

Crawford Lodge

Crawford Lodge is a two-storey building set in beautiful, landscaped gardens within the grounds of Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (Monash Avenue, Nedlands). There is a lift to the second storey.  It comprises 6 single units, 49 twin units and 4 family units. Priority is given to regional patients who need to have a carer with them during the course of their treatment and families with children.

What financial assistance is available?

If you need to come to Perth for cancer treatment and live 100kms or more from the city, or in Northam or York, you may be eligible through the government’s Patient Assisted Travel Scheme (PATS) for assistance towards the cost of your travel and accommodation.

Application for this assistance must be made in advance via the PATS Clerk at your local hospital or through your treating doctor, prior to commencing your journey.

If you are eligible for PATS cover, you may not have to incur any costs other than personal telephone charges to stay at a Cancer Council WA Lodge, as the Cancer Council will invoice PATS direct for the cost of your accommodation.
