The Hospital Research Foundation held a special event recently to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the Under Our Roof homes and the unveiling of the new healing gardens.
We are gladdened to be a major sponsor of this project that helps remove a major stressor for cancer patients from rural areas, who struggle with family accommodation options when travelling to Adelaide for treatment.
Hearing directly from a patient and her family, who live in excess of 300k from Adelaide, about how the House enabled their family of five to remain together, reduced anxiety and allowed the family to focus on recovery was compelling.
The Dr Jones & Partners Under Our Roof (part of our community and social responsibility work) and the Mercer SuperCycle – Mercer House Under Our Roof homes are located close to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
