Hummingbird House is Queensland’s only children’s hospice, and one of only three children’s hospices in Australia. We provide specialised paediatric palliative care services to babies, children and young people with a life-limiting condition, helping them make every moment precious, when time is short.
Paediatric palliative care focuses on enhancing a child or young person’s quality of life. At Hummingbird House, our multidisciplinary team do this by supporting guests to live their life to thefullest, for as long as they can. Our services include short break stays, crisis or symptom management, family support, neonatal/perinatal support, and a wide range of allied health care. We also provide families a caring embrace when the time comes to say goodbye to their child, as well as end of life care, after death care and grief and bereavement support. These services can be provided in a family’s home or community, or at our purpose built home away from home hospice in Brisbane.
Your genereous support allows our services to be accessible to over 5,700 children in Queensland with a life-limiting condition, and their families.
