Genesis CancerCare Lodge
Your home away from home in Two Rocks.
Apart from battling a cancer diagnosis, patients living outside metropolitan areas often face the additional burden of having to travel long distances for daily treatment, or finding accommodation closer to their treatment centre.
Having tirelessly assisted cancer patients as a volunteer throughout much of her life, Jo Holding understands this more than most. It was the driving force behind her vision to transform her home into a lodge for patients – a safe place where people requiring accommodation closer to treatment services could relax and truly feel welcome.
Jo contacted Genesis CancerCare for assistance to turn her vision into reality. With the help of some amazing people and generous businesses, Genesis CancerCare set about bringing Jo’s vision to life.
Genesis CancerCare Lodge offers four boutique style double bedrooms with ensuite spa bathrooms in quiet, seaside surroundings. One downstairs room is equipped for patients with mobility concerns. Massage and counselling services are available on-site. A free transport service to/from the Lodge and Shenton House in Joondalup is also available, along with Perth airport pick-up/drop-off.
More information about Genesis CancerCare Lodge can be found by downloading the brochure here.
Patients do not need to have a cancer diagnosis - ALL ELIGIBLE PATIENTS are accepted at the Lodge.
Accommodation is FREE to eligible Patient Assisted Travel Scheme (PATS) patients and their carer undergoing treatment with Genesis CancerCare. The PATS subsidy fully covers the cost of the stay.
As Genesis CancerCare subsidises the operating costs of the Lodge, there is a $10 fee per night per person for PATS eligible patients who are not receiving treatment with Genesis CancerCare.
Any patient who does not meet the PATS criteria can still stay at Genesis CancerCare Lodge. A nightly room fee applies.

Room priority is given to Genesis CancerCare patients undergoing treatment at Shenton House in Joondalup, but there is usually availability.
For reservations, phone Genesis CancerCare in Joondalup on 9400 6201 or Jo at the Lodge on (08) 9561 5946 or 0414 702 726.
