Suzanne House provides specialised individual respite care for children with a life-limiting condition in a small homelike environment.

Aims and Objectives

First and foremost, we aim to provide an environment that is homely. We practice and incorporate the ethos of Saint John of God which is that of hospitality, compassion, respect.
With the support of families and friends and other medical personnel and health agencies, we aim to provide for the highest possible care needs of each child with a life-limiting condition.


Suzanne House is a service of Saint John of God Community Services Limited. We provide respite services for children who live at home and who have multiple disabilities which are often associated with complex medical conditions and/or brain injury.
It is the policy of Suzanne House to provide care and comfort rather than curative treatment. While excellence in nursing and care standards is maintained at Suzanne House, the decision to seek necessary medical intervention and treatment is deemed to be the responsibility of the family.
