Father and daughter looking at each other smiling

When Anja and her mum were struggling to care for her terminally-ill dad at home, our Hospice at Home nurses came to help and support them all.

Anja is sharing her story to help promote our Lottery Super Draw so that we can help even more local families, like hers.

The night we called the Treetops nurses, we just weren’t able to do the simple things like make dad comfy in bed. You feel so helpless knowing you can’t do those little things. 

"As soon as the nurses came, they spoke to me and my mum and made sure we were okay. And then they went to dad. They made him comfortable and had a little joke with him, which helped relax us.

They made dad’s final night at home as peaceful as it could have been. He was pain-free and happy. It’s all we could have asked for as a family.
