Accommodation
Some patients and carers need to relocate for treatment and may need help with accommodation. The Foundation’s staff can help find suitable accommodation close to your hospital or treatment centre. In many areas, the Foundation’s fully furnished self-contained unit and houses can provide a ‘home away from home’ for you and your family.

Transport
The Leukaemia Foundation also assists with the transporting of patients and carers to and from hospital for treatment. Courtesy cars and other services are available in many areas throughout the country.

Practical support 
The urgency and lengthy duration of medical treatment can affect you and your family’s normal way of life and there may be practical things the Foundation can do to help. In special circumstances, the Leukaemia Foundation provides financial support for patients who are experiencing financial difficulties or hardships as a result of their illness or its treatment. This assistance is assessed on an individual basis.
