Accommodation - Lilier Lodge

  • Overview

    lilierlodge-overview

    Should you require accommodation Lilier Lodge is a home away from home for patients undergoing cancer treatment in Wagga Wagga. Lilier Lodge was purpose built by Can Assist and Cancer Council NSW together with the support of local and regional communities. This accommodation centre acknowledges the specific needs of cancer patients and their carers while they are undergoing cancer treatment at the Riverina Cancer Care Centre (RCCC).  When vacancies allow, the Lodge's hospitality is also extended to people travelling for other medical appointments.

    Located at 317-321 Edward Street, Wagga Wagga, the Lodge is close to the Riverina Cancer Care Centre, Wagga Wagga Rural Referral Hospital, Calvary Hospital, Specialists, and is only a short drive to the shops. Lilier Lodge is a self care accommodation facility that offers comfort and serenity, plus support during a very stressful period. The Lodge also provides a drop-in service for cancer patients who travel daily for their treatment and would like a cup of tea in our lounge while they wait for their transport home.

    Lodge staff are not able to provide personal care assistance. If you do require assistance with any aspects of your daily living then you will need to have a carer stay with you.
