About Bear Cottage
Bear Cottage is the only children’s hospice in NSW.
We provide respite and end-of-life care for children with terminal illnesses and their families in a medically supported ‘home away from home'. For children in our care, there is no happy ending or miracle cure so we give them as much love, care, laughter, fun, and support, as they need.
We care for kids from across Australia and from all walks of life. Every child that visits us lives with a condition that means they are unlikely to see their 18th birthday. Many don’t make their first one.
We cater for the entire family - parents and siblings can enjoy time together without the worry of housework and cooking. There’s time for families to create lasting memories to cherish after their child has passed away.
