Accommodation during cancer treatment
LILIER LODGE was purpose built by Can Assist and the Cancer Council NSW, together with the support of local and regional communities.
Lilier Lodge provides accommodation for people undergoing cancer treatment at nearby facilities including the Riverina Cancer Care Centre, Wagga Wagga Rural Referral Hospital and Calvary Hospital. When vacancies allow, we extend our hospitality to people travelling for other medical appointments.
Lilier Lodge is an accommodation facility that offers comfort and serenity, plus support during a very stressful period. The Lodge also provides a drop-in service for cancer patients who travel daily for their treatment and would like a cup of tea in our lounge while they wait for their transport home.
Our staff are not able to provide personal care assistance. If you do require assistance with any aspects of your daily living then you will need to have a carer stay with you. With that in mind each of our rooms provides accommodation for two guests.
You are most welcome to have family and friends come and visit while you are staying at Lilier Lodge. As well as your room, there are gardens and a lounge that you can utilise for spending time with your visitors. Limited parking is available at the rear of the Lodge for visitors however priority is given to guests.
Lilier Lodge is a self-care facility with twenty double rooms each furnished with an ensuite bathroom, two king single size beds, flat screen TV, small refrigerator, microwave, tea and/or coffee making facilities, and heating and cooling.
Guests have access to a communal lounge room with a guest computer, free Wi-Fi, books, jigsaw puzzles, games, and a TV/DVD player.
There is outdoor space including a Serenity Garden to rest and relax.
All linen is provided and rooms are serviced on a weekly basis.

Keith faced a long drive from Griffith to treatment, but he was able to avoid a 200km daily journey thanks to Lilier Lodge in Wagga Wagga.
