We have chosen the following services to cater to the needs of families affected by cancer. Currently we provide cleaning, laundry and pre-prepared meal delivery services in order to assist families affected by cancer. We also hope to hear from others as to what they require or wish to see in the future. The services will be paid for or subsidised by Sara’s Project in order to ease the financial burden that cancer can inflict.

These services will be able to be accessed by families via a referral from their health care professionals and the completion of a brief online questionnaire to determine the individual needs of each family before the provision of services can commence.

If you would like to access our services or know someone who would benefit from them, our online form can be found via the link: https://sarasproject.wufoo.com/forms/q9qsv0p19u3q3z/

Some additional information about the services we are working on in provided below:

LAUNDRY SERVICES

Finding the time and energy to do the laundry especially when a member of the family is in hospital or exhausted from treatments can be difficult. We have therefore partnered with various laundry providers to ensure that your clothing is washed. The laundry will either be picked up by the laundry service themselves or a Sara’s Project representative to be taken to the laundry where it will be washed and dried and returned.

 

CLEANING SERVICES

We understand that cancer can make life more hectic than expected, often cleaning comes as a lesser priority but with relatives and friends coming over to help one can often feel obligated to clean but lack the energy and time. We have developed this service to ensure the stress of a messy house and house guests does not take a toll on the family. We are able to provide a cleaner to come to the house once a month at most to assist in this area, and ensure that the focus remains on getting the family on their feet and not the Lego under their feet.

 

Pre-Prepared Meal Delivery

For those days when it is difficult to cook, we have partnered with a Melbourne-based business that prepares and delivers healthy and nutritious meals to your door. You can choose what meals you and your family prefer or leave it up to our Sara’s Project team to select the perfect set of meals for your week. We are able to take on board any preferences or allergies to ensure that no matter what, there will be dinner on the table, regardless of how the day has been.
