The Incredible Story about Heartfelt Homes
Presented by: Caroline Meehan
Founder Caroline’s husband was diagnosed with cancer – and all of his treatment, scans, tests and appointments were a 7 hour round trip away from home.
Not wanting to leave his side – Caroline spent money they didn’t have on accommodation, extra care for her kids back home, petrol, meals and more.
And even though getting her own family through this nightmare was always on her mind – she also thought about all the other families that must struggle to stay together during medical emergencies.
And that’s where Heartfelt Homes began….
When you or someone in your family has a medical emergency, the best care is often a long way from home.
We help find a room for your family near the hospital, because being together is often the best medicine.
The thing with family is that when they need to be together, they’ll do whatever it takes to do just that.
Tragically for some, the only option they have to be near a loved one in hospital is to sleep in their car, in a waiting room, travel hours back and forth each day or go into debt to pay for hotels or motels.
Heartfelt Homes can provide these families with a short-term room, so they can be together close to the hospital.
This means they’re able to support each other and the person undergoing treatment or specialist care; helping them heal faster and cope better.
