HERE, LIFE IS FOR LIVING
Bear Cottage is a children’s hospice – a very special place that’s dedicated to caring for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
Bear Cottage is also the only children’s hospice in NSW.
At Bear Cottage we believe that life, however brief, should be enriched, enjoyed and celebrated.
Ours is a home full of special moments and cherished memories. Here, life is living.
Bear Cottage provides support, respite and end of life care for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
An initiative of the Children's Hospital at Westmead, Bear Cottage is a medically supported home away from home.
At Bear Cottage our special children find love, care, laughter, fun and support. This holistic approach is achieved not just through regular respite and end-of-life care but also specialised camps, bereavement support and much more.
Its location in Manly ensures families and children can rest in the tranquil surroundings near all the attractions and amenities of one of Australia’s traditional holiday destinations.
Bear Cottage was established by donated funds and continues to rely on support from the Community to provide the programs that make Bear Cottage unique.
