Our Mission / Objective

Hannah’s House is dedicated to supporting children with life-limiting and complex conditions and their families to live their best quality of life.

We do this by offering vital in-home respite care, play therapies and other services to support the wellbeing of the child and their family.

With the generous funding of our donors, we can provide care, comfort and joy to seriously ill children, enabling them to participate fully in home and community life.

Our Services

Hannah’s House focuses on quality of life for children who have life-limiting or complex conditions and their families. Life-limiting conditions are those for which there is often little hope of cure and from which children or young people will often die before adulthood.

Families with seriously ill children face complex challenges including stress on siblings, physical and mental health issues, financial and work problems, relationship issues and social isolation. Parents report high levels of distress and burden, low quality of life and unmet emotional and practical support needs.

Parents often place their personal needs aside to focus on their child’s needs. This may be feasible in the short term when a child is suffering from an acute illness; however, when a child has a life-limiting condition, placing personal needs aside for months and years can have detrimental effects on the parents’ health and well-being.

We offer supports that are flexible and tailored to support the child’s physical, medical, emotional and social wellbeing, while providing vital respite for parents. Support may be offered at any stage along the child’s health journey following diagnosis to recovery or palliative and end-of-life care. Care is provided in the comfort and safety of the child’s home environment, while also supporting participation in social and recreational opportunities in the community.

‘Quality of Life’ is an important and foundational goal of the work undertaken by Hannah’s House. Our vision is to provide ‘care’, ‘comfort’ and ‘joy’ through all our services and supports and we believe these make a significant difference to the life of the child, their parents and siblings.

Our core charitable programs including Respite Care Packages and Playtime Play Therapy.  Through these services we:

  • Provide access to trusted in-home respite care where other funding or services are not available.
  • Help increase the confidence and resilience of parents to care for their child, particularly with complex supports including tracheostomy and seizure management, nutritional feeding and managing distressing symptoms.
  • Help to reduce familial distress and burden by providing health and social support to the child and giving parents much-needed time in the day for themselves.
  • Bring joy to the child and family through social and recreational participation opportunities including individualised play plans and shared playgroups.

These services are provided free to families where no other funding is available or where funding falls short of the child’s needs. We also deliver supports through the National Disability Insurance Scheme to children with NDIS funding.

Hannah’s House is an accredited and registered disability services provider through the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

Our Beneficiaries

Hannah’s House a dedicated paediatric service caring for children and young people from birth to 18 years who have a life-limiting or complex condition.

We currently work with families across the Perth and Peel areas.

General Donations

‘QoL’ for kids with complex needs

Many of us experience the joy of children in our lives, but for families with children diagnosed with life-limiting condition or complex care needs, the ongoing challenges can often overwhelm those feelings as they simply try and cope with the complexities they face.

Looking after a child with complex needs at home will require a family to give 24/7 care; attending to the child throughout the night, managing frequent seizures, tube feeding and a managing medical needs normally administered by nursing staff. The child may not be able to speak, see or hear clearly, breathe independently, move independently or do many other things that most of us take for granted. 

Hannah’s House provides vital respite, support and relief for families who are experiencing significant emotional, physical, financial or social hardship as a result of caring for a child with complex needs.

Our services include in-home respite, assistance with daily living, help to transition a child home from hospital, home-based crisis or emergency respite, play therapy, palliative respite and end-of-life care.

Our support is flexible and always tailored to meet the needs and goals of each family. We focus on quality of life for the child and support for the whole family.

A donation to Hannah’s House today will help provide vital in-home health and support services to a child in need.
