Hummingbird House Brisbane is a medically supported home away from home for Queensland families loving and caring for a child with a life-limiting condition. Our purpose-built, warm and welcoming space is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of professionals who offer short break stays, crisis or symptom management stays, family support, allied health, end of life and after death care, and grief and bereavement support. Hummingbird House Brisbane provides guests and families a place to come together, reconnect, and make memories to last a lifetime.
Hummingbird House @ Home provides care and support to families loving and caring for a child with a life-limiting condition – no matter where they live in Queensland. We believe that every family deserves choice about when, where and how we support them, and recognise that many families prefer to receive care in their home or community. Our developing service currently provides care in the community via NDIS funding or charitable funding. The services provided by our multidisciplinary team of professionals include in-home care, allied health, crisis or symptom management, end of life and after death care, and grief and bereavement support. These services are provided in-person or remotely via telehealth.
Hummingbird House recognises that family and community are fundamental to every family’s experience of caring for a child with a life-limiting condition, and that different families have access to different levels of support – with some experiencing severe disconnection, isolation and struggle. Our interdisciplinary team of therapists, community development workers and support staff work with families to increase their sense of connectedness and belonging – holding space for grief and joy in equal measure.
